Wheat growers need to look at available phosphate fertiliser levels for their crops and cocktails of micro-nutrients to push yields towards the heady heights of 15t/ha. Phosphate, the second most important plant nutrient after nitrogen, is often locked up in soils, so only one-quarter of the applied nutrient is available to a growing crop. Even when soil tests indicate adequate phosphate levels, big yield responses can be seen by using a form of the fertiliser that is readily available to […]
