By adding the MicroSorb Formula to ponds and lakes with algae problems, the ecology is rebalanced so that algae cannot proliferate. Organic loading (fertilizer run-off, animal waste, etc.) provides excess nutrients which cause algae to bloom. Our beneficial microbes use these organic nutrients as food, therefore out-competing the algae for their food source and inhibiting overgrowth.
University of Massachusetts Amherst Cranberry Station Study
A three-year study (2014-2016) using our MicroSorb Formula on a historically algae-laden cranberry irrigation pond resulted in no nuisance algae since treatment. Algae was controlled for two seasons in a row with one springtime treatment each year. In the third season, no MicroSorb treatment was applied to see if the benefits of prior treatments persisted. Algae did not re-occur. Further pilot studies followed.
Example of areas that we treat for algae
1) Recreational ponds and lakes
2) Cranberry bog irrigation ponds & ditches
3) Agricultural irrigation ponds and reservoirs
4) Golf course and landscape ponds
5) Wastewater lagoons
Archaea Technology for Algae Prevention
Field Pilot Study Following the success of the U Mass Amherst Cranberry Station study and several years of anecdotal success in treating recreational ponds and golf course ponds with the MicroSorb Formula, a formal field pilot study commenced on three historically algae-laden cranberry irrigation ponds in Southeastern Massachusetts in Spring 2017. In all three ponds, no algae overgrowth occurred in either the ponds or the ditches. The study will continue with another application in Spring 2018.
