If you only look at the nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (NPK) content of fertiliser, you are limiting the effectiveness of your hard-earned dollars quite unnecessarily.
There are other nutrients and factors which when considered will drive your fertiliser dollar further.
Sulphur and calcium, for example, often restrict outcomes, not to mention trace elements.
But, what about the soils biology that packs in enzymes, vitamins, and a host of other goodies?
These all are crucial in delivering bottom line profitability to pasture-based enterprises.
They are the key to increased utilisation of fertiliser.
According to a company spokesman, Eco Growth fertilisers deliver DM yield, but perhaps more importantly, they deliver palatable, nutrient dense pasture because they consider more than just NPK.
According to the spokesman, Eco Growth offer the complete solution.
“Strong NPK and trace fertiliser that balances the soil builds the house for your soils biology,” they said.
“We then add a suite of targeted individually identified species of biology at high CFU rates which furnishes the house creating a home-sweet-home for your soil nutrient factory.
“This approach provides nutrients on demand in a plant available form, held in the soil, ready to be used exactly in tune with pasture growth – every grass and legumes dream come true.
Farmers report th”e differences when two options of fertiliser have been used in the same paddock.
“Discerning grazers vote with their hooves and move to where biologically activated fertiliser was used, preferentially grazing that area.
“They measure it in increased weight gain, stock health, handling temperament and increased soil life.
“Fertiliser that works with soil life sets up your season to get the best out of your pasture.
“With Eco Growth fertilisers, expect not only higher stocking rates, but weather event resilient pastures and contented grazers.
“Capitalising on the elusive autumn break with Eco Growth biologically enhanced fertiliser pays dividends in weight gains, milk production and general animal health.”
