Mainfert prioritises monitoring and checking paddocks and crops year-round to achieve optimal results for farmers.
On December 13th, 2022, a fertiliser mix of NPK+Mg+B was applied to a paddock near Oxford based on soil test results. The Kale seed was drilled on December 15th, and no further fertilisation was applied.
Recent soil tests showed significantly higher levels of nitrogen (171 kg/ha) enough to manage crop maturity, which reduced the need for urea and made it more affordable for the farmer to apply the correct nutrients.
The images below show a well-grown crop that is estimated to produce 16-18 tonnes dry matter per ha. Mainfert and the client are pleased with the results of the targeted formulated mix.
