Ten reasons to use YaraBela Nutri Booster

1. Nutri Booster contains just the right amount of sulphur for grass growth

Why is 2% S enough?

  • Sulphur rate matches grass growth rate from August
  • Over applying sulphur is an unnecessary waste.

2. The nitrogen used in Nutri Booster has the lowest ammonia emissions

Why is it the lowest?

  • Calcium Ammonium Nitrate used in Nutri Booster is not susceptible to ammonia losses like urea or protected urea.

3. Using Nutri Booster means more grass per kg of N applied

How is this?

  • Less N lost to the atmosphere means more N available for your grassSynergy of having both nitrogen and sulphur together.

4. Nutri Booster is a Complex Compound Fertiliser

What does this mean?

  • Each granule contains nitrogen, sulphur and selenium – No segregation of nutrients
  • More landing sites for sulphur and selenium.

5. Nutri Booster can be accurately spread

What’s the importance of this?

  • Even spreading pattern, whether your spreading 12m or 24m.
  • Ensures the application rate you want is the application rate you get across the full spreader bout width

6. Nutri Booster is dust free

No dust?

  • No dust deposits on the back of the spreader.
  • Takes less time to wash your spreader down.
  • More even fertiliser application

7. What’s on the Nutri Booster bag is in the bag

How can you guarantee this?

  • Strict quality control, unrivalled within the industry, since 1905.
  • Always produced in Yara's own factories

8. Nutri Booster contains selenium for livestock health

Do selenium fortified fertiliser’s work?

  • Unfortified grass does not contain enough selenium to meet a dairy cow’s dietary requirements
  • Cows require adequate selenium for their immune system and to maintain pregnancy

9. Nutri Booster contains the best sort of selenium

What’s the best sort?

  • Sodium selenate, is the most efficient form of soil applied selenium.

10. The selenium in grass is utilised more effectively by the cow

How come?

  • Selenium in grass is bound to protein which makes it more easily absorbed.

  • Grow more and better grass per kg of N applied

  • Save time with a confident, accurate fertiliser spread

  • Improve milk quality across the herd
