The Innovative Melela Product Range
field and laboratory test results

 

Pathogens nipped in the bud
Laboratory tests at the Agricultural Research Centre (ARC) in Onderstepoort, near Pretoria, show that Melela products suppress the growth of the pathogenic bacteria E.coli, Clostridium botulinum and Salmonella sp.

 

Higher PEF values
Field trials at various broiler producers in KwaZulu Natal show that the use of Melela products consistently improves productivity. Higher production efficiency factors (PEF values) are achieved – see table below.

 

No more drugs
Experience shows that expenditure on antibiotics, pesticides and chemicals is reduced when Melela products are used on a regular basis.

 

Cleaner Environment
Sweet smelling litter/droppings/effluent with low biological oxygen demand (BOD) and reduced ammonia levels.

 

Here are some of the carefully monitored field trial results obtained using Melela with broiler chickens on KwaZulu Natal farms:
