Diatoms are nature’s live nutrients consisting of Proteins, Lipids, Carbohydrates, DHA, Vitamins, Minerals, Fatty Acids & Amino Acids. Diatoms are the primary food source for the aquatic animal food chain. Depending on the species and culture conditions, benthic diatom contains an average of 32 to 38 % crude protein.
Several researchers confirmed that, feeding shrimp and fish species with protein rich live feeds (Diatoms) will improve the activity of digestive enzymes (Xu et al., 2012), reduce nutrient deficiency (Lara-Anguiano et al., 2013).
AQUAMAC DIA-GROW improves and rejuvenates beneficial “Diatoms” in all kind of aqua ponds. It generates live fresh feed from pond water, which is rich in diatoms and Oxygen to achieve maximum growth, disease free, health and survival of the shrimp and fish. AQUAMAC DIA-GROW ensures disease free environment to achieve maximum production.
- Improves Dissolved Oxygen level
- Improves growth of diatoms and pond water quality
- Creates live food for the pond, thereby increasing survivability, improves growth & better weight gain and optimizes FCR
- Provides critical nutrients for soil microbes
- Reduces water exchange and excludes pathogens like green algae
- Tea Seed Extracts eliminates unwanted fishes & harmful insects in the prawn pond
Usage & Recommendation
For Pond Preparation: 15-20 Kg/acre. Can be mixed with inorganic fertilizer (Urea, DAP) and organic fertilizers (cow dung).
During Culture: 5-10 Kg/acre in the morning after 2 hrs. of 1st feeding once in every 15 days.
Or as per recommendation of Aqua Consultant
During culture mix AQUAMAC DIA-GROW in 30-40 liters of water to form a slurry & then broadcast this slurry uniformly throughout the pond. Start the aerators immediately after application.
During pond preparation apply BENIZO 80 & leave water for 48-72 hrs. before AQUAMAC DIA-GROW application for best results.
Storage & Handling
Store in a cool and dry place. Avoid all contact with eyes & skin. Use in a well ventilated area. Prevent spillages.
