Imagine! You buy 100kg of fertiliser, but it has a hole in it when you get home there is only 40Kg fertiliser left. This is exactly what happens when you apply granular fertilisers. Is this BAD yes, of course, you have lost 60% of the price of the fertiliser and it is not good for the environment? Is it a disaster? No, our products will help you solve it in an Efficient, Easy & Cost-effective way. To understand how it works, we must first understand the problem, Fertilisers are only effective when they feed the plants and not when they are stuck in the soil, leaching, populating the groundwater and evaporating. These nutrients losses can be huge, these are measured by the fertiliser's use efficiency FUE is based on the number of Nutrients absorbed by the plants against the number of nutrients applied to the soil and plant. Loss of Nitrogen efficiency can be between 20 - 50% (this is a lot) Loss of phosphorus can be between 80-90%, So the total loss of uptake of nutrients can be between 60-70% Think about this, when a farmer buys and spreads 100kg of fertilisers only 40kg are useful to his crop and 60% are lost or blocked in the soil. How do you as a farmer get the most out of your fertilisers? Spreading your fertiliser in a Humus rich environment, that protects phosphorus from leaching or disappearing protects Nitrogen from leaching. Spraying 4-5l of Humifirst will increase the efficiency of your fertilisers & increase by 20% on NPK, & secondary nutrients and over 40% intake of trace elements. Spraying this on the soil will increase the profitability of fertilisers and reduce their environmental impact. Your fertilisers will feed the soil and plants better without part of it polluting the environment going into the groundwater and getting locked in the soil. Call today for more information on how to increase the efficiency of your fertiliser
