R. van Wesemael stands for sustainability. This also applies to your soil. You will not get good revenues if your soil let you down.
Lately is more forward that the soil and the activity in the soil determines the revenue of your crop. Hereby a large number of things play an important role.
For this reason, the Van Wesemael group decided to incorporate the organic fertilizer 'Fertiplus' of 'Ferm O Feed' in their package.
This fertilizer granule is an environmentally and hygienicaly responsible organic fertilizer granule. The organic material consists primarly of humic acid structures that unblock the present minerals in the soil. This is the reason that the minerals will come gradually available for the uptake by the roots of plants. A proper fertilization with these organic fertilizer granules prevents deficiency symptoms during the growing season in the crop. This positive effect ensures significant savings on mineral fertilizers. Less use of mineral fertilizers is good voor the environment and prevents salinization of the agricultural land.
In addition to these advantages, the use of organic fertilizer granules leads to an increase in the microbiological activity in the soil. The organic substances in the fertilizer granules are degraded by the soil life into humic acids and amino acids. This proces requires oxygen and attracts air, so that the soil is lighter and more spongy. Air in the soil is just as important for a plant as water and minerals. Spongy soil also prevents suffocation of the roots.
We have three kinds of organic fertilizer granules.
The Fertiplus range:
The Fertiplus range consists of dried, composted chicken manure sometimes supplemented with an organic phosphate or potash.
