Provides an effective, immediate and long lasting supply to growing crops, ensuring full yield potential and response to nitrogen can be achieved. Phosphate is essential for good establishment and early growth. Typically, Cropkare contains 10% P2O5.

Provides immediate and extended release. Potash is essential for water relations in plants and a good supply improves drought tolerance. Applications of potash are especially important for, or following, exhaustive crops like silage grass and high yielding cereals. Typically, Cropkare contains 12% K2O.

Essential in all crops for the formation of chlorophyll for photosynthesis. An adequate supply of magnesium is essential for grassland where deficiency can cause grass staggers (hypomagnesaemia) in livestock. Cropkare contains typically 6% MgO at which a 500 kg/ha application would supply 30 kg MgO/ha.

Sulphur is an essential component of proteins in all crops. Deficiency of sulphur can reduce nitrogen uptake and affect the quality of protein, especially important in breadmaking wheat. Cropkare contains typically 5% SO3 so a 500 kg/ha application would supply 25 kg SO3/ha.

Regular applications help maintain soil pH and so uptake of other nutrients. Cropkare contains typically 29% CaO. The Neutralising Value is typically 25%.

Can help improve the palatability of permanent grassland and leys for dairy cows and other livestock. Some crops, for example sugar beet, root brassicas and carrots have a particular requirement for sodium. Cropkare typically contains 2.3% Na2O.

Trace elements
Cropkare contains the trace elements – iron, manganese, boron, copper, zinc, molybdenum and chlorine – that are needed by all crops plus selenium that is often deficient in livestock.
