Independent Fertiliser Prescriptions
Being of Scots' farming descent makes us have a frugal approach to certain expenses. Fertiliser management is one area where frugality is a wise tactic. The land only needs a precise amount of fertiliser each year. Land and waterways can only absorb so much N (nitrogen), P (phosphorus), K (potassium) and sulphur (S) before any excess runs off to acidify soils, contaminate waterways, and deplete streams of oxygen, resulting in algal blooms, bad odour and fish kills. And that's wasted money and exposure to prosecution risk.
Productivity demands, fertiliser expenses and major environmental damage can be conflicting factors in fertiliser management. Independent advice based on proven science is a must. GreenXperts works for you, we are totally independent of any fertiliser supplier.
The science is complex, and so we have automated the best of it into NutrientPro™, our independent scientific tool for fertiliser "prescriptions". NutrientPro™ takes your farm's geology, soils, fertiliser history, water resources, up- and down-catchment features, regional council rules, production targets and budgets, and independently calculates your fertiliser prescription. You can then match this to fertiliser company offerings, and achieve the best application based on sustainability and your budget. NutrientPro's prescription can be 'tweaked' if you wish to spend a little more, or a little less. Paddock-by-paddock prescriptions are possible depending on how good your soil tests are.
NutrientPro™ reports include a fertiliser application map and an environmental compliance map, see examples above (green for compliant, red for non-compliant - illustrations only). If non-compliant, NutrientPro™ can recommend amendments to the fertiliser application to comply with council rules. This will also safeguard you regarding nutrient management within your Farm Environmental Plan, which are now compulsory in New Zealand. NutrientPro™ is free with our Farm Environmental Plans.
