Oilseed rape is not exempt from nutritional stresses during establishment and with a delicate and easily limited root structure, the consequences can be more important. Maximising growth at this early stage is critical. Ensuring optimal P supply leads to increased yield, oil content and higher stored phosphorus, enhancing seed quality. Reviewing the [...]

Beneficial Microbes in Broad Acre Cropping; an increasingly necessary input which is now a realistic option Over the last decade an explosion in microbial based product platforms for agriculture has occurred in the marketplace driven by a market that wants zero pesticides, little or no synthetic fertiliser and (no [...]
Nutrition and Genetics... Is there any reason why this shouldn't be the same in Crops? From my studies as a human nutritionist, we learned from Doctor Francis M Pottenger Jr, who was a doctor of human medicine, that the quality of the food we eat and its implications on the health of [...]
Calcium - Magnesium Stress It’s an often overlooked nutrient, but calcium plays a very critical role within plants in terms of growth and nutrition. Calcium is not only a structural nutrient but also a regulatory one. The largest utilisation of calcium in plants is as a structural component of leaves where [...]
OVERVIEW “Feed before you Weed” 2, 4 and 6 leaf stages are the critical timings for biostimulation and nutritional support. Calcium Phosphite (aCalsa / Calfite) at the 2-4 leaf stage T6P at the 4 & 6 leaf stage Kirol provides a programmed approach to ongoing stress reduction as a partner [...]
T6P One of the most exciting discoveries in plant physiology The trehalose pathway is present in all plants, it is a sugar-signalling mechanism that regulates metabolism, growth and development. It is critical for plant development in seeds (Eastmand et al 2002), vegetative growth and the transition to flowering (Schluepmann et al 2003) [...]
Potato Update After a challenging start to the current potato season with dry weather, wet weather and very cold nights let’s hope it moves into a more settled growing period …… whatever that may be. Here are a few thoughts for consideration with this years crop. Below are some nutrient uptake graphs [...]
Turbo Charge Your Spring Barley Crop The area of spring barley has rapidly expanded this year, predominantly due to the challenging autumn planting conditions. But spring barley doesn’t have to mean compromise when compared with a winter crop if it’s managed correctly and given the support it needs to fulfil its potential. [...]
