The benefits of Potassium in fertiliser for pasture growth

Rural Exchange 29/10/2017

Potassium is one of the four major macronutrients required for plant growth but it is regularly the first nutrient that will be dropped out of fertiliser recommendations when times are tough. 

Our regular expert on fertiliser, Dr. Jamie Blennerhassett from Ballance Agri-Nutrients joins us to say this is a poor decision.

Potassium is relatively cheap and has just as big an impact on production as nitrogen, phosphorus or sulphur. We explore with Jamie why Potassium is so important to pasture.
