Poultry litter is commonly made of wood shavings, sawdust or rice hulls. Microbes convert uric acid and organic nitrogen in the bird’s excreta to ammonium. This ammonium can not only bind to litter but also dissolve in water. This ammonium is generally converted to ammonia in high pH (i.e. alkaline) and high temperature conditions. Ammonia thus produced affects the respiratory system of the birds, can act as eye irritant and can also reduce resistance to infections. The cascading effects of ammonia are observed at high concentrations whereby it decreases the feed efficiency and growth of birds while increasing mortality in birds.
The net result of all these effects is Economic loss to the farms.
