Traditionally, we’ve seen regular applications of phosphate and potash in the autumn. However, Yara’s advice has always been to shift this application to the spring using a NPKS fertiliser. Why? Because numerous trials have shown the increased effectiveness of spring-applied phosphate.
By applying phosphate in the autumn, we end up feeding the soil, not the crop. The nutrient then becomes locked up in the soil and unavailable to crops that need it the following spring.
If you apply it when the crop needs it, you’ll get maximum benefit.
With YaraMila NPKS fertilisers, you can extend phosphate availability beyond the immediate need of your crops to provide them with an ongoing phosphate supply to maintain strong root development.
If you take control of early root development by applying YaraMila NPKS fertilisers in the spring, you’ll benefit from a well established crop.
Healthy crops with a strong root system will ensure better access to nutrients throughout the growing season. Ultimately, as a result, you’ll achieve a higher yielding crop and a better return on investment.
The following CCF compound fertilisers all supply combinations of nitrogen, phosphate, potash and sulphur (NPK+S) in appropriate ratios for all crops.
