Big role for Biostimulants in fertiliser price hike

With the agricultural industry experiencing a 130 percent increase in fertiliser costs, farmers are being advised to look beyond nitrogen applications to get the most from their soils.

“It’s been reported that next year the spend on fertiliser could more than double for the average farm, which is likely to result in farms using less artificial fertiliser,” says David Newton, Timac technical adviser.

Timac Agro has proudly not closed our factories or reduced production.

We supply world-leading phased released Nitrogen for all crop purposes, available through our key partners DP Agri & Wynnstay.

Today we talk about Maxigrass, a lower N soil conditioner, ideal for sheep and horse paddocks.

The low N promotes a high quality slow growing palatable grass With 80% Nitrogen efficiency which is almost double that of a conventional solution.

Our N is protected against volatilisation and leaching, we have seen it still present in our soils 12 months later.

How can we help grapevines to recover after a difficult frost period?

100%: This is the percentage of a vineyard that can be damaged due to frost

High yield reduction will be expected due to these cold waves, occurring after weeks of heat and crop development.

During dormancy, grapevines can support temperatures as low as -15°C. However, as soon as the vines bud, they become more vulnerable. If frost occurs, the young shoots dry and die. The final yield is thus highly reduced, but this reduction may not reach 100%. In fact, improved weather conditions, with rain and good temperatures can relaunch the budburst, but the drying of the first bursts will impact this recovery.

As grapevine was already at budburst; starch and N storage has been consumed by the plant for its regrowth. Storage of starch and N are not at their maximum anymore for the second budburst. This has a direct impact on the energy of the crop and on the yield. Fertilisation and biostimulation must help the plant to sustain the coming flowering period to preserve the forming fruits.

TIMAC AGRO products can help grapevines to recover and protect the coming harvest.
