Autumn prices are now available for this increasingly popular way of replenishing both major & trace soil nutrients. As always, please book early to help the spreading programme run efficiently. All you need to do then is call your loads in a few days before you'd like it spread.
-EfficieNt 28 Foliar Nitrogen On Maize-
Most maize drilling got off to a variable start this year so the plant now has a lot of work to do to catch up with its full potential. We don't grow any other crops with all seedbed fertiliser instead of when it actually needs it so why do we hope for a massive crop of maize with just seedbed fertiliser?
Maize needs some 50% of its total Nitrogen requirement from the 8 leaf stage to tassling, with a further 35% needed for cob fill during August to September.
Potential losses of seed bed applied nitrogen after this recent heavy rain may leave the crop short of nitrogen during these essential stages of growth resulting in translocation of nitrogen from the leaves to the grain sites and loss of green leaf.
To address this issue, we recommend 25kg/ha applications of Efficie-N-t 28 at the 8 leaf stage to give yield lifts of 3 to 5 tonnes per acre fresh weight over untreated crops, without delaying harvest dates.
5 x the efficiency of soil applied nitrogen
Nearly 100% uptake
Low volume application
Can be tank mixed with most fungicides
Sticker & anti-drift benefits
Contains plant friendly amide N which promotes higher sugar levels and reduces risk of crop lodging
Pushes higher yields

-Bale Wrap, Bale Net & Twine-
Our best deals are on Enviroplus bale wrap which is 1650m (10% extra) & 5 layers thick (standard is 3 layer). We have a small amount left of Pink bale wrap in support of breast cancer.
Netverks full cover Net wrap is hugely competitive & brilliant quality.
Tama Type72, 9600' twine is also the best deal around, Its longer & cheaper per meter offering a direct replacement for the old 7200' Hesston Twine.
We also have very competitive deals on HD twine & Tama LSB twine (220kg knotting strength)
Ecosyl & Ecobale are still considered the most reliable for improved animal performance.
- Grass Seed-
If you are planning a grass reseed this autumn we would urge you order soon rather than a last minute panic……what am I thinking…….nobody does that, do they??
You may also consider rape & turnip seeds, stewardship mixtures & even wild flower mixes.
