The company supplies granulated and liquid fertiliser solutions across all crops including products specifically suited to sugar cane. This range includes their patented carbon coated fertilisers headed by Black Urea®, a range of granulated blend and the popular liquid solution, Bang P™.
“We had never tried it before so I guess I was skeptical to start off with,” he said.
“I liked the idea that liquids wouldn’t burn the plants and the fact it worked out cheaper was an added bonus.”The whole process was easy because we applied it at the same time we were spraying for grubs so we were able to do two jobs in one application so it cuts down on work you have to do on a farm.
“The results spoke for themselves – our figures showed a return of $23 for every dollar spent on Bang P – adding to that we got an extra 12.3 tonnes per hectare from the sugar cane crop.
“We picked up tonnage, the units of sugar were higher so we got more money – it doesn’t get any better than that.”
Mr Salmon said he was encouraged by growers who were willing to change their farming practices to improve the quality and quantity of their crops.
The company, who are in their 12th year of operation, have invested years of research both in Australia and overseas in Black Urea® and Black DAP™ which has culminated in superior products to boost plant growth by improving nitrogen and phosphorus efficiently, saving growers thousands on fertiliser costs by reducing leaching and volatilisation.
“Our research and development in the Black Range has always been on the dollar return for the grower. And our range of sugar blends has been specifically formulated with grower input. Our staff has been in the field asking growers what they need.”
The sugar blends incorporate the company’s own biostimulant, carbon based coated Black Urea® and Black DAP™ in place of standard urea and DAP.
