What is Fertiliser Integration

Rethinking Fertiliser Regimes and Practices

Based on plant physiology, there are proven benefits to IFM.

Based on time and economic efficiencies, there are also proven reasons to consider a change to your traditional fertiliser programs.

By budgeting up to 10% - 20% of your fertiliser expenses for Seed Priming and Ultra Foliar you could expect increased benefits and returns on investments.

Let's look at some :

  • The young plant (embryo) gets its first signal of having sufficient phosphorus when the seed imbibes water. Later, when the radicle grows into a developing root system, (depending on the soil P-level or its accessibility to granular phosphate), the second signal as to the yield potential by the early completion of tillers 1 and 2 is perceived. It is therefore important that the available phosphorus in the seed is adequate – and this is secured through Seed Priming with BSN.
  • It is well known that the root uptake of phosphorus is some 10% - 20% of the season's input. This contrasts with an efficiency of some 80% for Ultra Foliar applied phosphate.
  • Where soil tie-up of phosphorus is high, the contribution of foliar phosphorus in improving yield is higher. Having phosphorus in a broad-spectrum blend is an easier and more practical approach to growing uniform healthy crops, than to vary fertiliser application rates in the same paddock or row, based on soil fertility mapping.
  • Foliar uptake requires half of the plant's energy as compared to soil uptake. The extra energy could be used by the root system to increase root mass and root-associated microbial activity.
  • By budgeting and using some 10% - 20% of your P in increasing seed level of phosphorus, and phosphorus-based foliar fertilisers, yield benefits result with no added fertiliser cost.
