CONCERNED ABOUT PRUSSIC ACID & NITRATE LEVELS
IN YOUR CROP?
Nitrate and Prussic acid occur naturally in plants however if plants are damaged or stressed, Nitrate and Prussic acids can rise causing toxicity in ruminant animals once eaten. Causes of high Prussic Acid or Nitrate levels, include damage, stress, drought conditions, frost, high nitrogen fertilisers and certain herbicides. Feed Central has developed an on-farm test kit for growers of forage sorghum to test their crop within minutes for Prussic Acid & Nitrate levels.
Current lab testing is done through quantitative means. The in-lab tests have a 2-week turnaround, in which time crop results could change and render the results meaningless.
Our qualitative test is a faster alternative that can be carried out on the farm and produces results between a couple of minutes to one hour.
Test kits includes: 5x Prussic Acid Tests, 5x Nitrate Tests, step-by-step instructions, information sheets, safety gloves.
