For dairy, beef and tillage farmers
Who are looking for higher yields, better crop establishment and a better return from the phosphorous applied
Our product contains Avail technology and can be coated onto any phosphorous containing fertiliser
Better availability than untreated phosphate where >75% of the P fertiliser is unavailable to the crop in the season of application
Our solution has been shown to reduce phosphorous fixation by 10-15%
It is tried, tested and proven in Ireland and the UK
AVAIL is a phosphorous fertiliser enhancer. It is specifically designed to protect fertiliser P from being fixed into unavailable forms in the soil by antagonistic elements such as iron, aluminium, calcium and magnesium.
By reducing the risk of fixation, AVAIL increases the availability of fertiliser applied phosphorous for greater uptake by the crop. This enhanced nutrient efficiency can lead to improved crop establishment, higher yields and better overall returns on P fertilisers.
AVAIL is coated onto granular phosphorous and is available in any fertiliser grade containing P, providing a simple solution to a complex problem – as evidenced by extensive independent field trials.
Plants take up phosphorous in its water-soluble phosphate form. Phosphate has a strong negative charge which fixes it to positively charged metals in the soil, e.g. iron and aluminium in acidic soils and calcium and magnesium in alkaline soils. The AVAIL coating is negatively charged and absorbs the positive antagonists, thereby shielding the phosphate from becoming fixed.
Independent work from Harper Adams University College, England, showed better rooting, giving greater yield potential. 3 weeks from planting there was over a 40% increase in root mass with AVAIL treated phosphate was used.
In study after study, AVAIL has been shown to reduce phosphate fixation and boost potential yields – as much as 10-15%.
|AVAIL is a designed to prevent phosphorous from being fixed into forms which are unavailable for plant uptake contained within many of our NUTRI-MATCH blends. Below are some example grades:|
|SILAGE GOLD 20-2-12+2% Sulphur + Avail||1st and 2nd cut silage|
|21-2-10+2% Sulphur + Avail||1st and 2nd cut silage|
|POTATO PLUS 7-5-17+10% Sulphur + 1.5% Mg||Potato fertiliser|
|The above is for guidance only. Please consult your fertiliser Advisor for a detailed recommendation based on your specific requirements and situation|
Numerous research studies have been conducted on the effects of AVAIL on key crops, including cereals, potatoes, oilseed rape, maize, onions and sugar beet.
Our aim is to provide specific carbon footprints for our products, improving accuracy for recording and reporting. NUTRI-CO2OL, our independently ADAS verified carbon footprint model, was developed to account for changes in raw material sourcing, production and blending sites.
