The beauty of fishmeal is that it is both a short and long term fertiliser, with a slow release of nitrogen that is immediately plant available and continues to be so over a sustained
period. It is also a great food source for biology, specifically VAM mycorrhizae, trichoderma, bacillus subtilis etc.
As we know, wet and cold soils won’t release their nitrogen to the plant. So, when we have a wet, cold early spring it impacts on the vitality of the plant for the coming growing season. A dressing of fishmeal at this critical stage of grass growth and development will eliminate this problem for farmers. The cost is minimal but the long term build up of biology, organic N and soil organic N in the plant root system will be ongoing over many seasons to come.
We also encourage the spraying of liquid fertiliser such as Biosea Organic Fertiliser over the fishmeal. The main reason for doing this is to use the Biosea as a delivery system to deliver the biology which is fermented into it – ie, NPK, B Sub etc .
