What is the application rate for Biocat 3000?

The recommended application rate for Biocat 3000 is one gallon per 10,000 gallons of solid waste residue in the pit or lagoon, and each gallon should be diluted with at least 10 gallons of water. The diluted product should be poured into the manure holding facility or sprayed on the surface, and the pit contents should be agitated (if possible) to disperse the diluted product throughout the remaining waste.

The methods for calculating the gallons of remaining waste in rectangular and circular pits or lagoons are described in the table below. Biocat 3000 may also be sprayed directly on bedding or litter in poultry buildings, loafing barns or hog sheds, and the application rate calculation is also described in the following table.

The single-gallon retail price of the product is $120 per gallon, and your cost will be lower if you buy in larger volumes (cases or drums). Please refer to our order form for more details on prices and shipping fees.

Rectangular pit or lagoon
The number of gallons is computed as the cubic feet of solid waste multiplied by 7.5. For example, suppose you have a manure pit that is 40 feet wide and 100 feet long, and there are two feet of solid waste in the pit. There are 40 X 100 X 2 = 8,000 cubic feet of solid waste, which is equivalent to 8,000 X 7.5 = 60,000 gallons of waste. In this case, you should mix 6 gallons of Biocat 3000 with 60 gallons of water to treat the remaining manure.
Circular pit or lagoon
The number of gallons is computed as the cubic feet of solid waste multiplied by 7.5. For example, suppose you have a manure pit that is 42 feet in diameter (21 foot radius), and there are three feet of solid waste in the pit. There are 21 X 21 X 3.1416 X 3 = 4,156 cubic feet of solid waste, which is equivalent to 4,156 X 7.5 = 31,173 gallons of waste. In this case, you should mix about 3 gallons of Biocat 3000 with 30 gallons of water to treat the remaining manure.
Bedding or litter in barns
You should mix two ounces of Biocat 3000 per gallon of water and use a small sprayer or watering can to apply the diluted product over the bedding or litter. You may repeat this treatment every 30 to 60 days (depending on conditions) to decay the litter and control odors.
