Rational management of fertilisers

Fertilisation is one of the most important yield-increasing factors and at the same time a cost-intensive treatment.

Therefore, fertilisers must be applied skilfully. Their application in the required quantity, at the right time and in the right way ensures their good absorption by plants, which determines high efficiency and cost-effectiveness of fertilisation.

High rate of absorption of components by plants reduces their losses from agriculture. It is a strong financial factor for farmers (loss of 1 kg of component currently costs them over PLN 4). It is easy to calculate that at a nitrogen dose of 70 kg N/ha and the use of 50% (average values in Polish agriculture) the loss per 1 ha of agricultural land is 35 kg N/ha, i.e. around PLN 140 per 1 ha.

The dispersion of fertiliser components outside agro-ecosystems of agricultural fields means not only financial losses incurred by farmers, but also poses a threat to the natural environment, particularly the aquatic environment. Component losses cannot be completely eliminated, but can be significantly limited.

For this purpose, good practices – to which this site is dedicated – should be applied. They ensure cost-effective and environmentally-friendly fertiliser management.

On this site, you can find all the information on: how to fertilise, fertilisers to be applied, their quantity and when to fertilise to obtain good crop yield and not pollute the environment, and at the same time comply with the provisions of Polish law and international regulations.
