For a large part the production of roughage on your own dairy farm determines the farm profits. Countless studies have time and again proven the importance of maximum yield of dry matter from your own farm. Fertilizing grassland plays an important part in this. The most important challenge for the coming years will be to increase the grassland production despite the stricter mineral regulation.
Using slurry, decreasing losses, applying the correct forms of nitrogen, attention to all macro and mineral nutrients and improving the soil’s natural fertility are important aspects for increasing production. Every year CropSolutions spends a sizeable budget on tests and research to gain more knowledge on grassland production on all types of soil. Besides using this knowledge in our advice, we also use it to optimise the composition of our fertilizers.
Grasmaster fertilizers are formulated according to the latest requirements and knowledge on grassland production. A different formula has been developed for all types of soil and farming methods. Other important components beside the correct form of nitrogen, are sulphur, sodium en selenium. In some fertilizers the correct amount of magnesium, copper and cobalt are added as well.
