CUT FERTILIZER AND CHEMICAL COSTS

 

Sustainable approaches can save conventional growers money on fertilizer and chemical bills. Research by Universities, Independent Companies and USDA has proven this to be a fact. The scare tactics used by vested interests regarding yield/income losses have been shown to be false.

 

SAVING MONEY ON P: PHOSPHATE

With MAP and DAP selling around $450/ton and higher, growers are looking for relief. Sustainable Ag offers at least 4 ways to cut phosphate costs without losing yield and maybe even increasing it.

 For optimum results, apply TN Brown Phos to soils reading very low or low to bring them up to medium to high levels of P2O5.

 

SAVING MONEY ON K: POTASH

Conventional farmers currently depend of large amounts of N and K to produce growth. This method automatically increases the need for herbicides, pesticides and fungicides. The real growth element is Calcium as contained in lime, gypsum and other specialty calcium sources. Once calcium is available to a crop, along with phosphate, the need for N and K go down. So there are several ways to cut K costs.

SAVING MONEY ON N: NITROGEN

 There are at least FIVE ways to save money on N. 

Sustainable management practices can save you money, activate your soils so your crops can utilize the minerals that are already there and, through soil balancing, reduce weed and insect pressures thereby cutting your chemical costs by reducing the need for them.
