Principles of Integrated Fertiliser Management

Compare the OLD practice with the NEW practice of IFM. The following graphic shows how this process works.

What this so graphically demonstrates is that :

  • OLD practice will generally see 100% of the fertiliser budget used as NPK
  • OLD practice typically sees no foliar applications, unless remediation of any known nutrient deficiency is required
  • supporting the success of IFM actually relies on the reduction of granular NPK use
  • the success of IFM through the combined (or integrated) use of BSN Seed Priming fertiliser, granular NPK and Ultra Foliar fertilisers shows better results and greater overall efficiencies
  • seed fertilised with BSN Seed Priming fertiliser, utilising a very small percentage of the overall fertiliser budget can results in optimum yield
  • potential as opposed to that of seed not feritlised, which risks below optimum yield potential
  • application of Ultra Foliar fertiliser provides plant available P, N, K + trace elements during vital growth and development stages
  • the protection of the soil through the return of greater organic matter after each crop is both an investment for future returns and for the ongoing cropping-potential of the land
