Every farmer knows that soil fertility is the bedrock for profitable farming – and that nitrogen, phosphate, potash and sulphur are the essential nutrients.
67% of soils are at or below the maintenance level for potash and 82% of soils for phosphate. Such a deficiency can lead to a huge drop off in yield and quality.”
Evidence suggests that many farms are putting their crops at risk of deficiency and are thus less able to benefit from new variety potential and increasing crop values.
