Soil fertility has a major impact on pasture and whole farm productivity. 

Many New Zealand soils are actually inherently infertile by definition, and hence nutrients must be added to build up soil reserves and increase productivity. 

Nutrients can be added in many forms, the most obvious and concentrated of which are synthetic fertilisers.


With Farmlands you'll get added value

As part of our all round fertiliser service, we also offer added value, ultra-fine lime products. Agricultural lime is essentially ground limestone rock (calcium carbonate, CaCO3) and is the principal fertiliser that can be applied to reduce soil acidity. The relative acidity (pH) of soils has a major effect on the productivity of pastures and hence this parameter needs to be monitored and corrected as and when necessary.

We retail ultra-fine lime products and fertiliser blends through CP Lime Solutions (and their Optimise product range).

We can assist with soil and herbage testing which are fundamental in developing the right fertiliser strategy for your requirements.
