There are considerable benefits to be gained from the use of Sun Organics fertilisers.
Successive applications of chemical fertilisers can have a detrimental effect on the land by depleting ingredients essential to maintain the water holding capacity, soil structure and earthworm capacity. Whereas chemical fertilisers give an initial boost for plants, often they do not last throughout the growing season and generally do not contain trace elements. Most are also highly soluble - so easily leach away, with consequent nutrient loss.
Sun Organics fertilisers, on the other hand, put life back into the land; providing both short and long term benefits with a balanced mix of important nutrients and naturally occurring trace elements vital for healthy plant growth.
Besides the three commonly acknowledged nutrients - Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium, four other major elements - Sulphur, Calcium, Magnesium and Chlorine are removed from soil by growing plants. The trace elements Zinc, Iron, Copper, Cobalt, Manganese, Boron and Molybdenum should also be present to provide the necessary balance of nutrients, essential for the optimum growth and health of the crop.
Selenium and iodine are two more elements which, though not generally associated with plant health are nevertheless essential to the well-being of livestock.
The unique Sun Organics formulation ensures a complete balance of trace elements is maintained in the organic based fertilisers. With Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen from air and water, this provides every natural benefit needed for sustained healthy growth.
In short, the answer is no. Where there is a known deficiency of one or more trace elements, direct remedial action should be taken, coupled with the use of a Sun Organics fertiliser to help maintain levels.
Up to 90% establishment can constantly be achieved with Sun Organics fertilisers. That's as much as 20% higher than the majority of chemical fertilisers.
These results are achieved by Sun Organics utilising a lower concentration of soluble salts - whereas the osmotic effect of high salt concentration reduces the seed's capacity to absorb water; thus inhibiting germination. Sun Organics also helps to promote stronger, deeper root systems.
Crops fed with Sun Organics fertilisers take up on average twice as much fertiliser Nitrogen as those fed with an equivalent amount of added chemical fertiliser.
This increased uptake of Nitrogen gives both a significantly higher density of plants and dry weight of heads per yard of drill row.
Grass is more palatable with Sun Organics fertilisers, which provides a balanced diet of nourishing food for fodder with a steady supply of nutrients. Sun Organics fertilisers also help to maintain the mineral balance to protect against disease.
Animals thrive on the quality grass produced. Customers claim healthier stock and lower veterinary fees result.
Improvement in the germination rates will, of course, be quickly obvious. Thereafter the benefits accrue, particularly in succeeding years.
The benefits of organic based fertilisers are proved by independent, scientifically conducted, tests carried out at leading Universities and Agricultural Colleges throughout the UK.
