By applying SustaiN on his farm throughout the year Mark and Shay has enjoyed the benefits of growing more grass, and the wider application window means he can put it on when it suits him. This is because SustaiN reduces ammonia volatilisation losses, leaving more nitrogen available for plant uptake.
This season Mark and Shay’s net benefit from using SustaiN is $5,691. To find out what your SustaiN Gain could be, call your Ballance Nutrient Specialist or use our calculator to work it out for your own farm.
“If we can grow more grass cheaper than what we can buy feed for its worth while. It’s our cheapest form of feed up here.” Mark and Shay Ingram, Tokoroa Dairy Farmers
