A good plant nutrition is the correct synergy of different nutrients. No nutrient should therefore be in abundance and no nutrient should be in deficiency. However, from the analysis of around 300,000 soil samples, we know that at least one (or more) nutrient(s) in content class A or B is present on around 60% of all areas we sampled. This is an unsustainable situation that we urgently need to change Read more

Depending on the nutrient and livestock density of a region, 30-40% of the areas are often underserved according to official advice. We wanted to substantiate this somewhat rough statistic with our own investigation and took a look. The result: on average every second field suffers from a considerable lack of nutrients. Read more

In our cloud-based software agriPORT, nutrient distribution maps are presented individually for each farm. Simple routines enable you, as the plant manager, to know immediately how much lime you need for your areas. In addition, you can have lime litter maps calculated for the entire operation according to VDLUFA specifications. In this short video, we provide the proof that lime planning can be carried out for the entire farm in less than a minute: Read more

Lime contributes to the long-term preservation of soil fertility and ensures reliable yields. In practice, however, limescale is still far too often used to avoid demand. As a result, suboptimal pH values predominate in many places, which has a negative effect on the profitability of the farm. The adjustment of the optimum pH value in the fields is not witchcraft.
