Spring application saves time and increases yield

It’s time to rethink traditional PK fertilisers in the autumn and apply a complete NPKS in the spring... 

.

♦ A simple product system that on average increases yield in cereals by 0.65 t/ha

♦ Storage space is minimised

♦ Fewer fertiliser applications – saving money

♦ Less work and reduced passes over the field

 Supplying nutrients when the crop needs it

Feeding the crop when it needs it

Advantages of spring application: 

♦ Encourages rapid uptake when crop is growing most

♦ Maximises response to application

♦ K supports the uptake of N, increasing the overall efficiency of the crop to produce higher yields

.

ONE product to supply all the relevant nutrients in ONE granule

Choose the product most suitable for your crop. All three grades are non-hazardous, making storage and handling straight-forward. By selecting the most appropriate Nitrogen rate, the products will supply the right balance of P, K and S for your crops.

New trial-based evidence

Historic trials conducted by NIAB/TAG (then Morley Research Centre), concluded that applying NPKS compound fertiliser in the spring, increased yield on average by 0.3t/ha in winter wheat and barley. This work has been repeated at the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester and the new data has shown the benefits can be a 0.65t/ha yield increase, worth around £75/ha, based on Sept 2016 cereals prices. See right for further information on this latest R&D. Even if you include the cost of fertiliser, the financial advantage to using spring applied Heartland Sulphur is still an average of £65/ha.

"In the trials, Heartland Sulphur was applied as the spring treatment against straight P & K applied in the autumn. There were quite obvious, visible differences in the wheat early on and later in the season in the barley trial."

Spring application of CF NPKS saves you time and wear on vital machinery

In addition to the yield advantage, there is also a workload benefit by eliminating the need for autumn spreading. Not only is this of enormous practical assistance at one of the busiest times of the year, but savings in labour, fuel and machinery overall, result in operational cost savings. A typical fertiliser application saving is around £6/ha. Reference ‘John Nix 2017’ thepocketbook.biz
