Dual purpose crops will be important this year as a source of feed for stock and grain at harvest, but to get the best out of these crops they will need a good start with nutrition, particularly nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P).

Technical Agronomist Lee Menhenett discussed the role Easy N can play in your pasture program this season.

Graziers can achieve substantial increases in winter pasture growth with nitrogen fertilisers across a wide range of pasture types, according to new preliminary trial data from pasture seed specialist PGG Wrightson Seeds.

Supplying sufficient nutrients in the right balance is critical in pastures, whether you are aiming for longer term persistence, high levels of pasture production or successful new pasture establishment.

Winter is a challenging time to maintain adequate pasture growth rates.

Trace elements like molybdenum play a critical role in helping maintain a productive, sustainable pasture system.

Graziers who invest in lifting soil phosphorus fertility have the potential to reap impressive rewards for years to come. That’s the message from farm business and livestock adviser, James Whale from Meridian Agriculture, Hamilton.

Research by Agriculture Victoria has shown that there are no pasture yield differences whether phosphorus fertiliser is applied in summer or autumn.

SuPerfect is the perfect fertiliser for many grazing businesses, with tried and true performance in the paddock, year in, year out.

I’m NOT here to tell you that summer is a better time to apply SuPerfect® than autumn – but it’s just as good.

Farmers and graziers are being encouraged to soil test this spring to identify opportunities to improve farm productivity and profitability next year.
