Cover of 'Nitrogen through soils' white paper

White paper: Soil Structure, Microbes and Nitrogen Efficiency

It is well known that soil microbes interact with plants to supply nutrients, in particular nitrogen, typically supplied through synthetic inputs such as fertiliser. In natural ecosystems, most nutrients including nitrogen (N) are bound in organic molecules which have limited availability to plants. To access these nutrients, plants are dependent on the action of soil microbes such as bacteria and fungi, which breakdown organic matter and mineralise nutrients

White paper: Nutrient Use Efficiency - soils a key factor

Nutrient Use Efficiency (NUE) is the term used to discuss the ability of plants to efficiently uptake, assimilate and utilise nutrients in the soil.

The use of fertilisers, ameliorants and trace elements is how farmers try to improve yield or address a shortage of nutrients.

Sometimes nutrient shortage is not the issue.

Amino Acids White Paper thumbnail

Amino Functions in Soil & Plant Growth

Amino acids are molecules critical in plant growth, flowering, fruiting and resilience to stress and disease.

These building blocks and signalling compounds are produced by plants. To improve plant physiological processes, amino acids can be added through application of biostimulants.

BioAg RPR White Paper v09191-thumbnail

Reactive Phosphate Rock Fertiliser

The phosphate rock used in agriculture is known by a number of names. Reactive phosphate rock (RPR), direct application phosphate rock (DAPR), mineral phosphate, soft rock, hard rock.

Being a mineral, composition and reactivity can vary greatly. Read more about their differences and how to improve phosphate availability.

Measuring P in Soil White paper thumbnail

Measuring Phosphorus in Soils when using BioAgPhos

If you are using phosphate rock as a source of P, you need to evaluate the soil tests you are performing to ensure you are getting a true picture of plant available P.
