    Mrs @gotlost must of been wide awake in her Agri College lectures as I researched this some time ago. It is a really interesting subject.
    By placing the organic mater in the water it releases extracellular hydrolytic enzymes into their immediate environment and these catalyze the organic matter decomposition. These enzyme proteins bond to clay surfaces and make them sink.

    I bet everybody wanted to know that. Just find out for me how the mater was applied and take note of the water change time period as I want to do it to my dam but have not been sure as I do not want to have a massive fish kill.
    I was just going to throw rice stubble in the dam to see what happens. I did not know you could also use Cow,pig ,chicken and other organic matter. I thought it would be too strong. But what would I know I am just an electronics engineer.

    Stick with rice. You never know whose kids are gonna use it as their swimming hole on a sweltering afternoon. ;)

    (Surely the water buffaloes will.)

    12 cart loads of prime BS for CRU so far and more on the way. I can see a change already. The clay is settling out. There will be rice and flowers added and at sometime fish.

    Took the twins for a look see. Look in the background and you see some workers, they are bring in the second electrical feed. In the next few days the polls well be concreted into the ground as a load of sand/rock/cement was delivered. The water is from the last storm and will be drained over to the lake so the paddy can made ready fo rice.
