SHEEP & BEEF

Fertco’s unique range of fertiliser products are ideal for use on sheep and beef farms where application on high country pasture can be difficult and costly. For example, our Dicalcic Phosphate (DiCal 12) has three times the amount of phosphorous as traditional dicalcic phosphate, so less needs to be spread. Costs are also reduced because it can be applied with lime and blended with most other fertiliser. Because it releases phosphate at a controlled rate matching plant requirements, there is no need for splitting phosphate dressings, and less is lost to the environment through run-off.

Our Fertiliser Consultants understand that fertiliser plans for sheep and beef farmers need to address more than just soil and plant chemistry, soil physicality and soil biology. They know that soil pH and liming are factors, as are soil type, topography, and rainfall. They also realise that each farmer’s systems and goals are different, and that a partnership approach is the best way to achieve whatever results their farmers are looking for.

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 Us 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 without polluting the local environment or involving child labour.
