Efficient use of fertiliser: Key steps to taking soil samples explained

Efficient use of fertiliser will be the key focus of a new short video series that is being produced by the Fertiliser Association of Ireland (FAI), writes AgriLand’s Sylvester Phelan.

Set to be rolled out over the coming months, this series has been described as a “key tool” for farmers and advisors by the FAI, with the first video (below) focusing on the importance of taking good soil samples. The video, produced by the fertiliser association, will look at the first steps in starting the fertiliser planning process.

According to the FAI, further videos will be released during the coming year, at “key timings for major fertiliser decisions”, to help guide farmers and advisors on getting the most from their fertiliser. The videos will cover choosing the right fertiliser product and applying it at the right rate, at the right time and in the right place on the farm.

The video below can also be viewed on YouTube here.
