Enhanced Efficiency Fertilisers (EEF"s) are being embraced by more and more farmers every season. Black Fertiliser Technology™ is leading the way through Black Urea® , Black DAP™ and Enhance Max™.
Numerous field trials show conclusively that the application rate of Black Fertilisers can be 25% less than ordinary Nitrogen fertilisers.
The end user can SAVE a minimum of 10% on Nitrogen costs and 25% of transport and application costs.
After application the subsequent soil processes drastically reduce the losses of Nitrogen in gas forms to the atmosphere & Nitrogen leaching down the profile
The end user can safely and confidently use less Nitrogen fertiliser.
The treated Nitrogen-rich fertiliser is in a format which means it can be applied at any time without the same risk of loss - application times become less critical.
Application by any means and any time is possible - direct drilled, spreader, aerial, in water, before planting or after the crop is established when crop pricing and water/rainfall availability is more confidently known.
The exterior carbon coating around the urea & DAP granule resists leaching even if pre-sown 4-6 weeks before rainfall.
When Black Technology™ dissolves, the core urea or DAP granule bonds with the coating, hydrolising into longer-lasting ammonium nutrients rather than short-lived, fast-leaching nitrates or tied up phosphates.
The more stable ammonium taken up by plants converts to nitrates in a way that better matches the crop’s natural rate of nutrient uptake - reducing leaching and wastage.
The carbon coating contains bio-catalysts that promote the growth of microbial communities that store nutrients for your crops.
An increase in 2.9 tons per ha was achieved with the treatment where the nitrogen was reduced to 66% Black Urea® with 100% uncoated Urea.
