To achieve optimum crop yields, nutrients need to be applied at the right time, in the right form and in the right ratios for the plant to use. Deciding on the quantity, form and timing of nutrient application will be the result of soil and tissue testing, an estimate of yield potential and local knowledge.
Koch Fertiliser Australia continues to invest in blending systems at our key terminals. These enable the production of fertiliser blends that incorporate key macro and micro plant nutrients, using compatible ingredients.
Additionally, fungicides can be applied to appropriate blends or straight fertilisers to provide protection against certain fungal diseases on wheat, barley and canola.
