Soil Nutrition

Take your five steps to improve soil fertility

 

 

  Soil testing – by taking a representative sample of your soil, you will understand the constituents of your soil and whether it has any nutrition requirements or not.

 

  With the assistance of your advisor, create a nutrient management plan for your farm based on your most recent soil test results. Following this, apply the correct amounts of nutrients as recommended.

 

  Based on your soil test results, correct the pH of your soil with ground limestone, if required.

 

  Optimise Phosphorous (P) and Potassium (K) levels to at least index 3.

 

Use slurry and fertiliser at the optimum times and on low P and K indexed fields.
