Providing information so that Farmers and Growers can not only understand a crop’s growth stages, but also the optimum timing periods for fertiliser application, and the product best designed to deliver the best yields and outcomes, is an important focus for RLF.

Our products are based on world-leading science and technology that ensures that nutrients are delivered directly to the plant.
