We offer a range of services including:
SOIL TESTING AND MAPPING
Soil pH levels can vary greatly across a field so our samplers take multiple sample across a field, all samples are recorded on our gps mapping system and maps produced accordingly.
These maps help the grower see where problem areas are and allow the correct amount of lime to be applied to each area.
P.K,& Mg testing also available as well as trace elements as required.
All 7 spreaders are equipped with weigh cells and variable rate compatible to various systems.
Each spreader has a designated and experienced operator
All spreaders on wide low ground pressure tyres
Each unit is self-contained with its own loader fitted with Greenstar guidance and self-steer
FIBROPHOS FERTILISER FOR CEREALS
Fibrophos is used widely across a whole range of crops. Replacing the nutrients removed and maintaining soil fertility are the key issues for farming today. As the nutrients in fibrophos occur in a very similar balance to those removed by cereals, regular applications of fibrophos ensure that the vital nutrients are replaced and kept in balance.
HOW EFFECTIVE IS FIBROPHOS?
To evaluate the effectiveness of P & K in fibrophos when applied to Spring Barley. A replicated trial was carried out on Spring Barley grown at Kirton in Suffolk on soil with a pH of 7.5, P index 1 (low) and K index 0 (very low). fibrophos was compared with TSP and MOP.
Yield: There was an upward trend in yield with increasing rate of fibrophos for both Phosphate and Potash. The difference in yield from the untreated control and positive rates of fibrophos were significant. Less response was seen with MOP.
Highest yields were obtained with the fibrophos application.
Bushel weight: There was a significant increase in grain bushel weight with fibrophos. There was no significant increase in grain bushel weight from TSP and MOP.
Grain analysis: fibrophos increased the uptake of Potash and Sulphur in the grain compared with TSP and MOP. N:S ratios measured in the fibrophos treatments gave good ratios which indicated deficiencies were unlikely.
PHOSPHATE-RICH FERTILISER FOR BRITAIN'S ARABLE FARMERS
P-grow is a sustainable fertiliser that releases phosphate gradually as the crop requires it. P-grow is not easily leached and can be applied at any time of the year by your local contractor, saving you valuable time at peak periods.
- P-grow is rich in phosphate, essential to improving early root development.
- P-grow is available to all crops and will raise your soil phosphate indices.
- P-grow provides phosphate in an available form as the crop needs it.
- P-grow is a totally natural product.
- P-grow is produced at state-of-the-art power stations in the UK, producing green electricity for Britain.
Our 3 dedicated Fibrophos spreaders are equipped with weigh-cells and Greenstar controllers for accurate application.
They are also fitted with wings to enable the dust to be spread evenly to 12 metres
