INCREASED YIELD DELIVERS INCREASED INCOME

Soybean crops are particularly dependent upon secondary and trace elements to achieve high yield. And, it is important to apply them at the different stages of soybean growth. This article follows the progress of one such soybean crop that compared the benefits and outcomes of an RLF foliar crop nutrition program as opposed to that of former traditional management. The outcomes included strengthened leaves that enhanced photosynthesis and a higher pod bearing rate with full-grain being achieved. Today we share the grower’s excellent results here.

MODIFYING FERTILISER APPLICATION RATES | When Low Rainfall and Tough Economic Conditions Prevail

Following a run of abnormally dry seasons and/or economic downturns, many dryland broadacre farmers find it difficult to grow an economically viable crop. This article seeks to answer this question, particularly as it relates to the modification of phosphorus in an effort to reduce the fertiliser spend. It also asks farmers to consider the science behind this question. The vagaries of climate have always been an integral part of broadacre cropping, so it is always useful to consider new methods of farming and fertilising in order that financial viability is maintained. This is an informative article and can be viewed here.

PROTECTING YOUR MOST VITAL ASSET | What you can do for your Soil

It is always good to be reminded of how important our soils are. This article asks viewers to consider solutions that build its health and protect it. Farmers and growers who have opted to modernise their crop nutrition regimes with an integrated fertiliser management program have benefited significantly as the health of their soil has improved. This is because the increased microbial activity within their crops’ root systems has sustained it. You can read about it here.

WANT TO INCREASE YOUR MILLED RICE RATE BY 6%?

Heilongjiang Province is located in the northern most part of China and is a high-quality rice production base. Rice farmer, Mr Liu planted 600 mu of rice this year in Fuyu County, and he used RLF Broadacre Plus on 585 mu of it. Read and learn about his story as it unfolded when the RLF Team returned to his base in October 2020 to measure and record the results. They were remarkable and can be viewed here.

EXCELLENT RESULT!

This is an inspirational story and we look forward to sharing it with you. First, let’s paint the picture – a pigment pepper field in Linhe District, Bayannaoer, in Inner Mongolia, the dazzling red colour comes into view, and more than 20 workers can be seen picking the fruit – it is a bustling harvest scene. The farmer is very excited with his yield, and with good reason. Join RLF’S Agronomist as he compares the quality and yield of the peppers following an evaluation trial. The results are outstanding and can be viewed here.

HOW THE STRAWBERRY BEDS WITHSTOOD HIGH TEMPERATURE CONDITIONS

For growers in the South East of China, the high temperatures in 2020 came earlier and lasted longer. Higher temperatures profoundly influence the growth of strawberry. The RLF Technical Team stepped forward with the ‘Anti-High Temperature Program’ and this publication provides a summary of the differences made between it and a Control crop using traditional methods of crop management. Growers noticed that their strawberry crops began to stop growing due to the high temperature conditions, and that many roots also began to die due to the impact. The RLF crop nutrition program focused on preventing disease, controlling flourishing, and promoting flower bud differentiation and you can view the results here.

INNOVATIVE AG-TECH TO MEET THE CHALLENGES AHEAD ‘FOR THE SAKE OF OUR SOIL’

We revisit an important part of a Special Report written in 2015 that considered the importance of protecting our soils. RLF’s integrated fertiliser management program builds natural soil fertility and farmers and growers who have opted to modernise their crop nutrition regimes have benefited significantly in this regard. The use of more efficient and innovative fertiliser strategies, together with the use of other complementary ag-tech is being called for. Peak industry bodies within a variety of agricultural sectors have all called for a rethinking of management plans, the use of advanced equipment such as drones for crop and land inspections, and computerised calculation tools to ensure wastage is kept to a minimum and that the soil is not being overburdened by fertiliser and chemicals. Read about it here.

GROWING CITRUS IN HIGH TEMPERATURE

Sunburn is a problem for all citrus growers, but the danger seasons each year for citrus sunburn in the SE China is from July to September. It is a leading cause of abnormality in citrus fruits and seriously impacts the overall yield of the orchard. Recently, the RLF Technical Team conducted a demonstration of two RLF specialty nutrition foliar fertilisers at a base in Fujian Province. The results showed that the RLF crop nutrition program could effectively reduce the incidence of sunburn, improve the brightness of the fruit skins, and improve the quality of citrus. See the comparisons here.

RLF’s BETTER PROFIT PROJECT

The Better Profit Project (BPP) is a packaged crop nutrition program scientifically planned by the RLF Technical Team to be used in conjunction with commonly grown commodity and staple crops. This publication follows the trialling of the BPP on a potato crop and the comparison between the RLF-treated and Control plots is very encouraging for farmers. The crop nutrition products used are RLF Broadacre Plus and RLF PowerPK.  Read about the amazing results here.

RE-IMAGINING THE FERTILISER FRAMEWORK AS PRIORITY TECH

On 22nd September 2020, the Australian government released its technology investment roadmap. Particularly pertinent for agriculture, is the priority technology field of soil carbon capture and storage – the process by which carbon is stored in the earth, rather than in the air. RLF products already tick many of these boxes, and in this publication, you are reminded about the energy saving capacity of the Integrated Fertiliser Management (IFM) model. Reimagine the fertiliser future within this framework. View it here.

CROP NUTRITION TECH LEADER RLF AGSCIENCE AND KG CAPITAL PARTNERS ENTER INTO FUND RAISING AGREEMENT

RLF AgScience (currently Rural Liquid Fertilisers Asia Ltd) is looking to expand its operations and influence globally, and today announces its partnership with Financial Adviser KG Capital Partners. This partnership will develop a capital and equity management strategy for RLF to ensure it is properly funded for its growth ambitions. KG Capital Partners will immediately embark on a pre-IPO capital raising to fund the proposed $20million IPO planned for 2021.

LENTIL CROP RESPONDS DRAMATICALLY TO FOLIAR SPRAY

This story highlights just what one remedial foliar application of 1litre/ha of RLF Intellitrace Copper and 1litre/ha Zinc Sulphate can do when sprayed onto a lentil crop with recognised copper deficiency. As can be seen from the images there is a BIG difference in growth and the overall health of the crop. here the product involved, and why it is such an excellent therapy for crops that are nutrient deficient.
