Management of water and soil quality in intensive culture ponds is one of the major challenges which can be achieved by eliminating the organic matter generated through uneaten feed and other sources. SPOROMAX™ contains a high count of spore-forming probiotics such as Bacillus subtilis, B. licheniformis, B. pumilus and B. megaterium strains which maintain a comprehensive range of water quality parameters by controlling toxic chemical content in water. SPOROMAX™ bacillus strains combination degrades this organic matter and recycles its nutrients in the water column which leads to the reduction of sludge accumulations and improvement in water quality. It also helps in preventing eutrophication of the pond by utilizing excess phosphorus and nitrogen along with controlling organic matter.
The special ability of mineralization and nitrification by these bacillus strains helps in the modulation of the various physicochemical parameters in pond water. These probiotic strains also increase appetite by increasing the activities of digestive enzymes in shrimp and fish consequently better feed utilization, faster growth, and less sludge production. SPOROMAX™ also noted to maintain of pond microbial community by controlling the growth of pathogenic microbes by competitive inhibition thereby keeping healthy and balanced microbial populations of the pond.
Composition:High counts of spores of Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus licheniformis, Bacillus pumilus and Bacillus megaterium.
Dosage : 500 g/acre of the pond once in 11 days. The dose is to be increased for high-density stocking as per the advice of the aquaculture consultant.
Mode of application : Use sand or water to mix SPOROMAX™ uniformly and broadcast evenly over the pond.
