Guano Organic Fertilizer News

Have you factored in your crop's Sulphur fertiliser requirements?

Sulphur is as necessary as Phosphorus, helping plants form important enzymes and assisting in the formation of plant proteins.

The more Sulphur you apply, the higher the protein in your pasture or grain crops.

When Sulphur levels are low, grasses will compete very strongly for the available Sulphur – because of their larger root system – to the detriment of the legumes.

This results in a grass-dominated pasture crop and reduced pasture quality.

Plants that are not able to intake enough Sulphur will exhibit yellowing of leaves that seems similar to nitrogen de­ficiency. With Sulphur de­ficiency, symptoms tend to show up on the younger leaves fi­rst followed by the older leaves. In plants depleted of Nitrogen, the older leaves at the bottom are fi­rst affected, moving upwards.

Sulphur drives up your protein. More protein equates to more money.

Airseeder-guaranteed and Organic-USDA certifi­ed, as well as being certified for biodynamic farming, Guano Sulphur Gold offers an easy way of unlocking the protein potential in your grain or fodder crops and is an ideal starter for chick pea, lentil and broadacre crops.

The many benefits Guano Sulphur Gold provides as a legume and forage starter include:

  • 90% Citric soluble Phosphorous to sustain the crop or pasture through its complete growing cycle; reducing Phosphorous tie up and leaching.
  • 11% Elemental Sulphur for strong leaf growth, higher protein in grain and leaf, for grazing or hay.
  • Plus 26.2% Calcium, 24.8% Silica, 0.4% Zinc.
  • Will not reduce legume nitrification like DAP or Starter Z.
  • In mixed legume and forage sorghum or millet crops, will assist legume in supplying more nitrogen quicker.
  • Perfect as a starter in sorghum or millet when pre-sowed urea has been applied.
  • Helps your crop sustain its growth in all soil types.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

Being so far away from our markets, durability is critical and the Silica is really good in terms of hardening up the skin and making the melons better to transport.Ord River WA irrigator David Menzel-Barradale
The problem with many organic fertilisers is that they have very low rates of nutrients, meaning you need to put out high rates. A product like Guano Gold has 12pc P, whereas Guano Sulphur Gold has 10.5pc P, obviously with additional sulphur. These figures compare very favourably with something like a single superphosphate product. Agronomically, it’s a good product in any setting, not just for organic producers.Garry Allison, Landmark Agronomist. Mount Gambier, SA
For the broadacre croppers, Guano Gold works really well in paddocks where they have had issues with nutrient tie-up. He said the majority of synthetic P products have large rates of water soluble P. The problem with that is that you can have instances where it ends up tying up zinc in the soil so you run into problems with zinc deficiencies. Not only does the slow release nature of the Guano Gold product work well over the entire season, it also contains zinc for the crop as well as the other nutrients.Moree agronomist Rob Drewitt
We strongly recommend the Guano Gold products to fellow farmers if they are looking at improving their Calcium and Silica levels using various methods of application such as foliar and granular.James and Aimee Thomas Falkirk Macadamia Farm
I have recommended Guano Gold products for 20 years and in all cases had excellent long-term results increasing in pasture productivity.Paul Baguely - PB Ag Consulting
They are high analysis products so you get your nutrients without having to put too much fertiliser out.Anthony Beutel, Googa Farm Organics
We have known since the 1930s that phosphorus is one of the main elements required to grow a successful crop of not just the (flax) plant but the seed. It was one of those products that was first out in a granular type form and it was so much easier to get an even coverage over the ground, rather than a powder form. Later on the product became a little more refined, so we could put it through our air-seeder. We also broadcast some of it, prior to seeding, when we are cultivating ground. The products have great characteristics in relation to phosphate and silica, which is exactly what we need for flax.Waltanna Farms flax-seed farmer & Ambassador for Guano Australia, Michael Nagorcka
