Abstract Growers can fertilise much more precisely and effectively. It’s been proven already that the plant uses fertiliser much more efficiently if the fertiliser system takes into account the measured requirements of the crop. Better utilisation has many benefits: lower emissions into the environment and savings on the fertiliser bill. A grower can boost the utilisation further by taking the watering into consideration in the fertilising strategy.
