Delay fertilisers

AUTUMN fertilisers could be delayed until spring where arable crops follow set-aside, says manufacturer Hydro Agri. Provided phosphate and potash indices are high, P and K can be supplied as a first spring compound, says Dr Geoff Paulson, head of agronomy. Application costs of £6.20/ha (£2.50/acre) could be saved.
