“We chose Abron out of a host of fertiliser suppliers because they had a simple and effective, well-recorded fertiliser regime”

To gain an in-depth understanding of your farming operation including soil and herbage tests and a visual soil and pasture assessment.
You’ll receive a comprehensive report that details soil fertility, soil health, and provides recommendations for optimal production of nutrient-dense pasture and crops.
To correct nutrient deficiencies and maintain soil fertility for optimal production of nutrient-dense pasture and crops.
Supplied in plant-available forms and an important aspect of building healthy
soil with optimal production potential.
Enhancing your microbial workforce is key to unlocking your soils potential.
Abron Soil Nutrition Consultants use proven testing procedures to measure
progress, adjusting your programme according to results achieved on your farm.
Maximising the chemical, physical, and biological attributes of the soil results in optimal mineral uptake into the plant. Many treat the soil as little more than a medium to hold plant roots and it is this lack of understanding that has led to increasingly inefficient and expensive fertiliser practices. Understanding how your soil functions and what gains can be made from capitalising on natural processes in the soil will lead to greater outputs from fertiliser inputs. The first step required for efficient management of our soil resource is to complete soil tests. Soil tests are used to determine the quantity or relative concentrations of nutrients. We use this information to correct nutrient deficiencies and maintain soil fertility for optimum production. An Abron fertiliser programme will provide the sufficient macro nutrients – nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur, magnesium, calcium and sodium.
Addition of trace elements in a plant available form is also an important component in building an efficient, mineralised soil.
Your soil is the engine of your farm. It powers your farm through pasture and animal production. The microbe work force that surrounds the roots maintains the engine and ensures peak performance. Under-performing soil running at say, 50% of its potential, uses a lot of fuel (fertiliser) and under-delivers on its potential horse power.
Above ground is the sugar factory. Plants use the energy from sunlight plus CO2 from the air and nutrition from below ground to produce sugar through the process of photosynthesis.
Below ground is the engine powering the sugar factory. If it is operating below its potential, then output from the sugar factory will be down.
“For starters, our input costs have dropped dramatically. We completely stopped applying nitrogen four years ago and there has been no negative change to pasture growth – we know this as we monitor closely using FARMAX on a monthly basis.”
