When creating our custom fertiliser blends, we are constantly aware of using appropriate nutrients in correct quantities to achieve the maximum growth response without excess fertiliser use.
Accurate and even application avoids excess run off. Soil can be alive with millions of tiny creatures, ranging from earthworms to microscopic bacteria and fungi. The living soil feeds on dead and decaying plant and animal tissue and residues. After meeting its own requirements, these soil creatures then make available surplus nutrients from the decomposition of organic matter for plants growing in the soil.
An active soil life is therefore a critical component of soil fertility. It is the driving force behind the various nutrient cycles operating within a soil and helps to maintain the essential pool of plant available nutrients.
Regular applications of finely ground lime will maintain good soil structure, porosity and moisture status; ensuring both pH and soil nutrient levels are adequate.
