More Than Manure® Nutrient Manager

More Than Manure® Nutrient Manager, referred to as MTM™, is the first and only product to protect both phosphorus (P) from lock-up and nitrogen (N)   from     leaching, denitrification and volatilization in applied manure. MTM maximizes P and N in all manures and litters – both dry and liquid. Increasing availability of these  valuable nutrients can lead to yield increases and better overall crop performance. MTM can be added to confinement lagoons or pits, in transportation/application equipment, or sprayed over-the-top of dry-applied litter or manure. When added to an in-ground lagoon or pit, MTM can reduce solids and ammonia levels in livestock-confinement operations.
