Fertiliser Advice in Cumbria

Nutrients that naturally exist in the soil must be replenished during the growing season, predominantly in late spring and early summer. That’s because it is the nutrients such as calcium and potassium etc which enable plants to grow. Without them, the simple fact is that plants won’t grow efficiently.

For this reason, it is vital that farmers ensure nutrients are added back into the soil. This can be done either by adding organic matter, chemical fertilisers or sometimes by adding green manures. For the land to be able to consistently grow healthy crops, balanced soil fertility is of paramount importance.

However, knowing what fertilisers to use can be confusing. Eco Prospects provides fertiliser advice in Cumbria. Fertiliser prices are currently rising and thus a more targeted approach is required to ensure that fertiliser application matches crop and the farms business requirement whilst taking into account the regulatory and environmental requirements. That’s why getting reliable, impartial fertiliser advice in Cumbria is essential.

Part of the fertiliser advice in Cumbria that we give might include sending a soil sample for base line testing in a laboratory. This will help to identify which nutrients are needed and how much to apply as well as when they should be applied in the form of a nutrient management plan. The support and advice we give helps farmers to avoid the potential negative effects of fertiliser use on the environment.

Worked with Ben finding land for Biosolids in Kent, Sussex and Hampshire. Ben’s ability to cultivate effective relationships with farmers and other stakeholders enabled him to deliver in a saturated and restricted market, that was being driven into negative value by the competition.
