The AHDB Nutrient Management Guide (RB) offers best practice guidance on the application of fertilisers and organic materials to crops and grassland.

RB Section 2 Organic materials. In this section you will find information on the nutrient content of organic materials such as manures, compost and digestate. Dry Lime has a lower moisture content than normal AgLime, due to having been through a thermal drying process.

lime test index obtained using the SMP-buffer lime requirement test and are applicable to an 8-inch depth. For no-till and established forages, lime recommen­ dations are based on a 0- to 4-inch depth, so the rates of application should be one-half the values given in Table 2.

These rates are for agricultural groundFile Size: KB. For quicker results, the lime should be aggressively mixed at least six inches deep into the soil. If applied effectively, the pH neutralizing effects of lime can start taking place by the day mark. This is why it’s also recommended to apply lime before planting seeds.

Being able to thoroughly mix the lime deep into the surface of the soil. The recommendations in this book support MAFF’s view on good agricultural practice for the use of fertilisers including the use of lime and organic manures.

It is one authoritative source of advice and provides a national standard. However, other systems may give equally accurate recommendations.

Pre-flowering foliar sprays to maximise flowering and fruit-set. Fertiliser advice is aimed at producing optimum crop yields on an annual basis while protecting the environment as well as maximising return on investment for the farmer.

The Major and Micro Nutrient Advice For Productive Agricultural Crops known as the Green Book provides nutrient advice for a wide range of crops grown under Irish conditions.

Sustainable organic lime farming strategies – growing tips and fertiliser recommendations to improve fruit quality, yield & shelf-life. The main purpose of the book is to provide recommendations for the optimum rate and timing of fertilisers but information is also given on a range of related topics such as soil sampling methods and fertiliser application.

The primary aim of the recommendations is to maximise the economic returns for farmers. fertiliser recommendations from the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAFF). RB stands for Reference Book To improve the accessibility of the recommendations and information AHDB’s Nutrient Management Guide (RB) is published as seven sections that will be updated individually.

Advice on fertiliser application methods at different soil P and K indices. Different plants require different levels of acidity – hence we have ericaceous composts for acid loving vegetables thrive when the soil is slightly acid i.e.

a pH level between and 7, Potatoes tend to prefer a lower pH, more acid soil and Brassicas prefer a slightly alkaline soil, pH of or even slightly higher.

Fertiliser recommendations then need to be moderated through accumulated experience of how crops and pasture respond on any given farm even field, i.e., if the recommended fertiliser rates consistently fail to produce a crop response, then the level of soil nutrients at which fertilisers should applied at can be reduced, or, if putting on more.

The MAF Fertiliser Advisory Service provides fertiliser and lime recommendations for pastures, lucerne and cereal crops. It does this by combining farm details with an understanding of the behaviour of nutrients in soils, plants and animals derived from many years of soil fertility research.

Recommendations are for individual farms or blocks of. Fertilisers are used to improve plant growth. The faster growing the plant, the more it will benefit from fertiliser application.

Because they can be heavy feeders, fertilizing citrus trees is sometimes necessary in order to have a healthy and fruit bearing tree.

Learning how to fertilize a citrus fruit tree properly can make the difference between a bumper crop of fruit or a bummer crop of fruit. Fromthe Fertiliser Recommendations (Defra ) and now the Fertiliser Manual (Defra, ) have used look‐up tables (Table 3) based on the analysis of many years’ data by ADAS and others that showed a linear relationship between soil pH and lime requirement, with a slightly different relationship for each soil textural by: Notes: Lime recommendations from Lime Chart 2.
