ANZAC day has been and gone and the winter crop and pasture sowing season is beginning in earnest.
Given the length of the drought that too many growers have been forced to endure, many will be sowing their crops and pastures with reduced rates of starter fertiliser.
Reduced fertiliser rates are a common theme in 2019, for a range of reasons. This presents challenges for plant vigour post emergence because water soluble phosphates, including MAP and DAP, will readily lockup with iron and aluminium in acid soils, becoming unavailable for plant uptake.
Phosphate is a critical nutrient for plant vigour, along with micronutrients including zinc and copper, which are often deficient.
If your fertiliser use is reduced, it is really important to ensure that you get it all into the plant.
Soil & Seed has demonstrated in replicated trials, field demonstrations and long term grower use, that it enhances uptake of nutrients into plants.
Apply Soil & Seed at sowing time, by boom spray or furrow injection if you’re set up for it – and it helps to convert applied fertiliser into a microbial state where it is not so subject to lockup, leaching or volatilisation. In this way, Soil & Seed enhances fertiliser use efficiency.
What is Soil & Seed?
Soil & Seed is a liquid product of microbial fermentation that contains a broad spectrum of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, carbohydrates and dormant beneficial organisms.
Many successful growers, from croppers, graziers and managers of permanent plantings have for many years taken advantage of the benefits of Soil & seed to their soils and crops.
Supplied in 1,000 litre intermediate bulk containers (IBC) or 200 and 20 litre drums, Soil & Seed is easy to use, filtered through 100 mesh filters and will tank mix readily with many trace elements, effectively bio-chelating zinc and copper sulphates, enhancing their efficacy and plant availability.
Get your crops and pastures off to the best possible start this year. Add Soil & Seed to your program and improve the plant soil interface for your crops. If it’s a valued input for some of the best operators, isn’t it time you added Soil & Seed to your program?
With average application rates of 3 litres per hectare, a small amount does a big job.
