All of our MicroChoice ® specialty ingredients are available in customizable formulations for your company to use in combination with other ingredients into your own unique final product.

MicroChoice ® PTP

A ready to use pond treatment product formulated to reduce organic waste, turbidity, and algae in aquatic systems.

MicroChoice® PTP – Pond Treatment Powder’s biologically active formula contains a proprietary blend of bacterial strains that were selected for the ability to breakdown excess waste material in ponds and reduce the amount of available phosphorous causing a reduction in the algal population.

MicroChoice® PTP’s naturally occurring cultures efficiently digest pond bottom materials and reduce the organic matter in the water column leading to cleaner water and higher oxygen levels.

The bacteria are stabilized and shipped in spore form, ensuring long term stability and extended shelf life.

Multilevel quality assurance processes extend far beyond our doors. Purity and microbial concentration is guaranteed for consistent and superior biological products in the hands of your customers.

As demonstrated in the graph to the right, the application of MicroChoice® PTP resulted in a significant reduction in Chlorophyll A, a measure of algal concentration, Phosphorous, and Turbidity.

These results were not generated in a laboratory, they were obtained under actual field conditions
