Cropping Benefits

Cropping Benefits

 

Wheat

When growing feed wheat, the usual aim is to gain high yields. YorGrow contains N,P,K,Mg, S and organic matter which will provide excellent source of nutrients and will give the potential for high yields at reduced input costs. Milling varieties require levels of grain protein nitrogen, and farmers are not advised to cut back on their final foliar nitrogen application even though there will be organic nitrogen in the soil.

Oilseed Rape

YorGrow contains significant amounts of sulphur and nitrogen, which OSR requires in significant quantities to grow a healthy high yielding crop.

Sugar Beet

YorGrow can benefit Sugar Beet in several ways. Sugar Beet benefits from the Nitrogen, but can also prevent drought in the summer growing season, increasing the chance of a yield increase.

Peas & Beans

Nitrogen fixing legumes do not agronomically require Nitrogen, but research shows that they do benefit from biosolids applications in the rotation. Legumes do require phosphate to provide strong rooting and rapid establishment in the spring.

Barley

Management of Nitrogen is a priority with malting barley. By using biosolids prior to drilling, you can reduce your bagged nitrogen inputs and by applying an organic fertiliser there is little risk of a late surge of Nitrogen uptake, due to the slow release properties of organic fertilisers.

Linseed

Research shows that biosolids can establish a crop quickly and cost effectively, establishing a good crop cover to compete with weeds.

Grassland

YorGrow can be an excellent grassland nutrient source. It can reduce the need for bagged nitrogen and phosphate fertiliser. Certain application restrictions apply but guidance from your RCS advisor and adhering to the Safe Sludge Matrix will ensure that all applications are within all the relevant regulations.
