By applying SustaiN on his farm throughout the year Nigel 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 Nigel’s net benefit from using SustaiN is $16,199. 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.


“Our dry matter growth increased quite significantly over the whole farm and our supplement use dropped away so it was a really good year.” Nigel Rathgen, Timaru Dairy Farmer
