Alzogur

Development of a new equipment for applying the biocide Alzogur®

The companies AlzChem and stadiko jointly have developed a new equipment for applying the biocide Alzogur®. Alzogur® is a well-proven biocide to control stable flies and the bacteria causing dysentery in piggeries. With the new developed Alzogur® dispenser the application only needs half of the time as before due to the fact that dilution and application now are made simultaneously. The Alzogur® dispenser sucks in the biocide directly from the container and adds it into the water stream in a chosen concentration.

New registration of ALZOGUR® in Spain

ALZOGUR® is a biocide registered for the treatment of slurry in pigsties. It is effective to control  swine dysentery and flies. It eliminates the pathogen "brachyspira hyodysenteriae" from liquid manure and thus breaks the infectious cycle. Alzogur is successfully used for more than 30 years in Germany and other European countries. Recently, AlzChem obtained the registration in Spain. Now, also Spanish farmers have a new effective tool for a better hygiene management in their farms.

Alzogur® and Perlka® in focus at AlzChem field crew and sales conference

The annual sales and field crew conference of the agricultural business unit took place once again in Trostberg. In addition to business development issues the latest findings on the technical and economic benefits of AlzChem products were presented. Experience in the practical application of Alzogur® in pig sties shows that this is an extremely effective and comparatively very affordable way to combat flies on a permanent basis. The systematic use of Perlka® in maize cultivation in an optimized system of fertilization results in significant increases in productivity.
