At Fertco, we fully support the efforts being made by New Zealand dairy farmers towards developing more sustainable and environmentally friendly practices. That’s why we have some of the most powerfully effective nutrient products for New Zealand pastureland. As a consequence of their superior nutrient efficiency, these products also save money, save time, and are less hassle.

Fertco’s Dicalcic Phosphate (Dical12) is an excellent case in point. It is three times as strong as traditional dicalcic phosphate fertilisers, so less needs to be applied. Additionally, it releases phosphate at a controlled rate matching plant requirements and is less prone to phosphorous run-off, so environmental impact is reduced.

But developing nutrient efficient products is not the only way we support you. Our Technical Nutrient Managers are trained to create fertiliser programmes with a difference; ones that take into account soil and plant chemistry, soil physicality, soil biology, plus your own management systems and short and/or long term goals. We can also help with nutrient management plans and compliance requirements. Regular contact and a complete back-up service is all part of the support we offer our dairy farming customers.

Soil and Herbage Testing Icon

Soil & Herbage Testing

As a science-based organisation, soil and herbage tests underpin everything that we do. We use New Zealand testing labs who provide clear, consistent results based on years of trials and regularly calibrated procedures. This provides a strong foundation for us help you develop and maintain an effective fertiliser management plan.

Quality Advice & Nutrient Budgets

At Fertco, we commit time and resources to train our people. We know that recommending the best fertiliser programme for your soil is only part of the story, so are equipped to prepare a full nutrient budget report for both efficient nutrient management and compliance purposes.

Customised Recommendations Icon

Customised Recommendations

Every property is different, and so is every farmer, so we don’t have generic ‘one-size-fits-all’ products. Although we base our recommendations on soil and herbage tests, our aim is to develop a fertiliser programme in partnership with you to suit your specific property and individual goals. Customised orders are all in a day’s work for us!

Environmentally Sustainable Products

Sourcing environmentally sustainable products is what Fertco has always been about (see About for our story). We select products that mitigate nutrient losses and test everything for contaminants and impurities. It’s equally important to us that what we source from around the world is ethically produced.
