The manure from dry operations or the manure
sludge from wash-down operations should be
composted with 100 to 300 pounds per ton of
zeolite depending on the nitrogen content. This
is generally done in rows where the compost can
be turned after temperatures peak. Straw, saw
dust, or other sources of carbon must be used
with the proper water content to complete the
composting process. Composting can take 6 to 10
weeks depending on the efficiency of the
operation. A 14x40 mesh product is preferred.

BRZ™ will tie up the nitrogen from manure/urea
before it escapes. It will increase the nitrogen
content of the fertilizer compost.

BRZ™ will hold ammonium in the crystal structure
so that it is plant accessible but not water-
soluble. This will decrease the pollution of the
water with nitrates, nitrites, and ammonium. It
will slowly release the nitrogen to prevent the
"burning" of the plant.
BRZ™ will increase the value of the compost not
only by increasing the nitrogen content but by
becoming a lasting soil amendment. As a soil
amendment, BRZ™ holds water and nutrients in the
growth zone, provides potassium and
micronutrients, and regenerates itself with
nitrogen from rainwater.
Due to its unique chemical and physical
properties, BRZ™ is perceived as one of the best
clinoptilolite in the United States for
agricultural purposes. Compared to other
zeolites, BRZ™ has a high potassium content,
which is a plant nutrient; a low sodium content,
which is toxic to plants; and a higher cation
exchange capacity (CEC), which is its ability to
hold more ammonium and other plant nutrients,
than other zeolites.
The use of BRZ™ added to manure/urea will
qualify for use in fertilizers for "Organic
