Improve plant and animal health by fixing trace mineral deficiencies in your soil

You need all key elements in your soil

For optimal pasture, plant and animal health, you need a balanced mix of nutrients in your soil. Most farmland is depleted in trace minerals which means farmers have to spend extra money on animal supplements and other interventions. You can fix your soil by adding essential elements.

Balancing your soil starts with an on-farm consultation and soil analysis

For healthy pasture growth you need 13 elements and a further 3 for animal health. Generally farmers only apply nitrogen, phosphate, sulphur and potassium. Over application of those kinds of minerals can do a lot of damage. Liming is important to manage soil acidity, this impacts pasture growth and animal health.
