WIN A SPREADER, 25t OF FERT

AND A FERTILISER PLAN

or a fertiliser plan in the Kemira/farmers weekly/Grassland 2002 competition. Just read

THE amount of sulphur in UK soils has declined dramatically over the last ten years, making sulphur deficiency an increasingly common problem. Kemira has a comprehensive range of sulphur-containing fertilisers for grassland farmers, produced at its Cheshire site. These are based on sound independent research and are formulated to provide your grass crops with the sulphur they used to get from deposition from the atmosphere – but no more. So there isnt the wastage there can be with fertilisers that contain large amounts of sulphur, like ammonium sulphate.

Sulphur increases the efficiency of nitrogen use by plants and so improves grass yield and quality as well as preventing nitrate losses to the environment.

Three years of Kemira-commissioned research at the Institute of Grassland and Environmental Research (IGER) and subsequent Kemira farm demonstrations have shown that:

&#8226 Sulphur deficiency limits yield and quality, and results in increased nitrogen losses.

&#8226 Sulphur-containing fertilisers can improve yields of grazed and cut grass.

&#8226 Sulphur-containing fertiliser improves grass protein and sugar contents, leading to more palatable grazed grass and silage. This can mean higher milk yields and growth rates and cost savings on bought-in feeds.

&#8226 Sulphur-containing fertilisers used on light soils reduce nitrate leaching by an impressive 74% and keep peak nitrate loss comfortably below EC limits.

If your soils are sulphur-deficient, you need to do something about it. The best way of checking for sulphur deficiency is laboratory analysis of the growing crop, and Kemira can organise this for you. A nitrogen:sulphur (N:S) ratio of 13:1 or above indicates a sulphur deficiency.

Remember, if you are in any doubt, check your sulphur levels. It could save you money. Sulphur-containing fertilisers from Kemira – the grassland choice include: CropMaster – The all-season grazing fertiliser for sulphur-responsive areas (28.5.5+6SO3); Multicut Sulphur – The all-season silage fertiliser for sulphur-responsive areas (23.4.13+7SO3); Kayenne Sulphur – For high yields of second and third cuts in sulphur-responsive areas (25.0.13+7SO3).
