Efficie N t 28 increasing OSR Oils
It has been discovered in last year's ADAS Boxworth trials that OSR fed with EfficieNt 28 at late yellow bud and petal drop, tested at 49% oil compared with typically 45% with traditional fertilisers. Unfortunately the trials where designed to study yield, which incidentally increased 300kg/ha, so they are planning to study Oils this season to verify last year's observations. EfficieNt 28 is low volume, non leaching, non scorching Foliar Nitrogen which can be easily tank mixed with other sprays.
The most impressive yield increases have been on Maize crops as nearly 100% of the nutrient goes into plant growth, not into the environment as with other seed bed fertilisers. This is technology to embrace !
Soil Testing and Mapping Service
We have made a trade agreement with a local soil testing & mapping business so that we can offer comprehensive soil mapping and advisory services without tying you into costly long term contracts. There are 3 levels of service and information to suite your requirements.
Lime Spreading Service
Besides bagged granulated lime, we are now able to offer a local bulk lime spreading service. This is Agri Lime dust 0-4mm with an analysed Nutrifying Value of 52%. Other local lime is typically 47 – 50% NV.
eNrich Nitrogen Fixing Microbes
eNrich is the new generation of biological inoculation for all plants. It is used to enhance establishment by increasing root development and fertiliser uptake, particularly N and P, whilst enabling atmospheric nitrogen fixation in the plant. Legumes such as beans, peas and clovers which tend not to be seed inoculated, have shown great results.
Grass Seed & Game Cover
Grass seed prices are down from previous years…Good News. We cover the South East with our top quality Headstart nutrient coated mixtures from Sinclair McGill and can offer competitive deals on request.
It is also the pheasant gamecover planting season… a very important subject !
One of the cheapest ways to top up your P & K's on spring grassland and you get a plethora of trace elements for free.
