Included in our fertiliser advice in Cumbria is compiling a nutrient management plan in Cumbria. Why is this important? Because it is vital not to exceed the nutrient needs of the soil and crops.
Having a nutrient management plan in Cumbria will help you to match the amount of nutrients you put into the soil such as fertilisers and organic manures with crop demand. Planning the best way to apply nutrients into the soil has many advantages. It can increase crop yield, reduce cost, reduce ammonia emissions and improve air quality, reduce greenhouse emissions, meet requirements for buyer quality schemes and limit damage to wildlife habitats.
On the other hand, applying more nutrients unless justified in building soil organic matter content than the crop needs, can result in the excess being lost into the environment either turning into gases like ammonia into the air or nitrates into the water. Having a nutrient management plan is a valuable tool.
Eco Prospects can help you compile a nutrient management plan in Cumbria which includes factors like calculating the nutrient and pH requirements of the crop as well as calculating the nutrients that will be supplied via organic sources such as slurry and fertiliser requirements. As a FACTS advisor, Eco Prospects will also help you decide which tools and systems are most suitable for you to use.
Ben is passionate about products from waste to bring about change in resource management. very knowlegable and helpful problem solver but more importantly very honourable.
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.
I have worked with Ben for three years on a number of project and business development initiatives. Ben stands out in my opinion for his creativity, his focus on developing bespoke solutions for customers and his determination to drive projects forward.
Ben came to the farm with a great knowledge of agriculture and was able to understand not only my business but what was practical and achievable. Ben’s work was of a very high quality and depth and he was able to aid me in pointing out my weaknesses and my needs in driving my business forwards.
