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.
