What is Teaseed cake?

Natural predators, such as eels, mullet, sea bass, and tilapia, account for up to 40% of the losses in the commercial fish and shrimp harvest Tea seed Cake application is a clean and non toxic treatment that checks the invasive species and promotes the growth of the commercial species.It can make the shrimp excavate in the early time making them grow more quickly and assist the decomposition of organic fertilizer accelerating the growth of the algae.

How It works?

Tea seed cake contains 30 percent Saponine, a deadly hemolytic toxin which, at a rate of 10 ppm, kills fish after 11 hours of exposure
The higher the water temperature, the more quickly the toxic effect disappears, usually in 5–10 days

 Benefits of Using TeaSeed Cake:

1.) It can make the shrimp excavate in the early time making them grow more quickly and assist the decomposition of organic fertilizer accelerating the growth of the algae.
2.) It detoxifies quickly in water and is not injurious to cattle and people who use the water.

Application of SeedCake

The tea-seed cake is ground up and soaked for 24 h in warm water (approximately 25°C). This solution is then diluted and distributed over the entire surface of the pond. This gets rid of Wild fish, frogs' eggs and tadpoles, small mollusks, leeches and some aquatic insects. Quicklime is then added to improve the quality of the water.

a) First apply 5.25 to 6.75 kg of prepared teaseed cake/100 m3 of 1 m deep pond water.
b) Next, apply 1.5 kg of quicklime/100 m3 of pond water.
