While we have learnt a lot in the last fifty years the most important thing we have learnt is that part of nature that we don’t know is infinitely greater than the little bit that we think we do.” - Sir John Russel, British pioneer of Soil Science.
Our speciality is blending the below products to provide high analysis soil BUILDERS and plant FEEDERS in one fertiliser blend. This reduces the number of passes across the one paddock. Blending also allows us to address nutrients beneficial to animal health for example selenium and Cobalt.
optimum soil structure for soil porosity for moisture, and aeration to sustain healthy environment for plant roots and soil biology
the plant with nutrients in the right proportion for fully nutritious growth
Lime (various suppliers)36% Calcium
The fineness of grind of this Lime ensures a quicker release pattern = faster results.
Golden Bay Dolomite
Calcium Carbonate & Magnesium Carbonate
A premium Magnesium fertiliser that not only builds Magnesium levels quickly BUT maintains soil pH levels. Because this product is a carbonate it releases in the same pattern as Lime, however, the fineness of grind often results in a 2 year release pattern instead of 3 as in Lime. The most cost efficient way to build soil Magnesium where Calcium levels are not elevated. Bio Gro Certified.
Phosta K (PK)
30% elemental Potassium, 2.4%Mg, 8Ca, 9S
A preferred Potassium source. Because it is a plant based material from the sugar cane industry it is kind on biology and highly plant availiable with less energy required for utilisation. PK also has small amounts of Nitrogen, Phosphorus and traces such as Fe, Na, Mn, Zn, and Cu. Bio Gro Certified
Softer on soil biology produces highly palatable growth and provides valuable soluble sulphur where required.
These nutrients are not held by the soils negative charge they rely on positive charges supplied by Organic Matter if they are not to be leached, fixed or tied up in the soil (attaching to other +ve charged nutrients in the soil).
Our goal is to use a combination of quick and slow release products to:
Limit leaching or fixation
Supply the plant with nutrients over a longer period of time.
Soft rock manure based Phosphorous product. Through natural processes the Phosphate has already bound to the Calcium element in a form that is 45-40% citrate soluble (plant available). This essentially means that it is stable in the soil (not subject to losses from leaching and tie up with other nutrients). An excellent product for building soil Phosphate levels and supplying plant available P across the entire growing season. Being manure in origin Guano also has low levels of trace elements. Bio Gro Certified.
A more stable form of Nitrogen in the soil as Nitrogen is already in the Ammonia form. Less losses from volatilisation and leaching also supplies sulphate sulphur for plant protein synthesis and growth.
Not only play a valuable role in Animal health, Plant nutrition but also in soil biology including rhizobia establishment in legumes. As these nutrient are required in such low levels application rates depend entirely on soil test results.
Is a catalyst in many plant processes including photosynthesis and reproduction. Good levels of Cu in the soil also help with disease resistance due to its role with cell wall strength and elasticity. Animal health roles include bone development and the nervous system.
