Like any crop, grass needs balanced nutrition. Nitrogen, potassium, phosphate and sulphur are all required with a large demand for these macronutrients during spring growth so it is critical that sufficient quantities of all these nutrients are available for uptake when required by the plant.
Every unit of nitrogen gives a return of 45kg of silage
Phosphorus promotes rapid growth, leaf size and plant tillering
You could lose 30% of your yield due to a shortage of potash
First cuts have a high sulphur requirement which cannot be met by slurry alone
YaraMila compound fertilisers don't allow any segregation of nutrients
YaraMila compound fertilisers require no compromises on spreader settings
Applying sulphur can give you 15% more silage
Ignoring sulphur could be costing you up to €27/ac
Applying compound fertiliser could give you 3% extra yield
An 8 day delay in application could lose you 6% yield
