Farm Irrigation Reservoir Algae Treatment Case Study
A ranch operation had three irrigation reservoirs (½ acre, 1 acre and 5 acres) which were used to irrigate 1,600 acres of citrus and olive trees. Filamentous algae blooms became a problem for the pumps and micro irrigation system. The grower wanted an alternative to chemical treatments to control the algae and keep the micro emitters from clogging.
The grower contacted Advanced BioTech to provide environmentally safe and natural algae treatment products that would solve this problem.
Targeted treatments of 6 gallons BioWorld® Liquid Optimizer (Product #35064) and 6 x ½ pound BioWorld® Algae Competitor Microbes (Product #30086) were applied on a weekly basis around the perimeter of the reservoirs.
