PLT®-Poultry Litter Treatment has proven to be the most effective and economical litter acidifier available. PLT lowers litter pH and creates a beneficial environment in the poultry house by controlling ammonia released from the litter. The ammonia bound by PLT reduces environmental emissions and increases the nutrient value of poultry manure.
Flexible. PLT can be used in any litter-based commercial poultry operation including those that grow broilers, breeders, turkeys, commercial pullets and layers, quail, pheasants and ducks.
Easy & Safe Application. PLT can be applied using any type of spreader and it’s the only litter amendment that can be safely applied with birds in the house. Plus, PLT is the only litter amendment that is classified as non-hazardous by the DOT and non-corrosive.
Fuel Savings. By immediately binding ammonia, PLT decreases ventilation needs, which reduces fuel costs.
Valuable Poultry Manure. By turning volatile ammonia into stable ammonium sulfate, the value of the poultry manure increases.
Backed by Experts. PLT® is backed by an expert team with decades of live production experience who understand the role litter management plays in animal welfare and performance. Let us help you develop BMPs for Precision Litter Management™ to address core environmental and health challenges.
PLT Product Chemistry
When PLT is applied it breaks down into sodium, hydrogen and sulfate.
NaHSO–4 > Na+ + H+ + SO–4
The hydrogen lowers pH and converts ammonia into ammonium. This ammonium then binds to the sulfate portion keeping ammonia bound in the litter for the life of the flock. PLT is a safe mineral acid that breaks down into products naturally found in the environment.
