What prompted you to use SlurryKing?

I’d read about it. With fertiliser prices the way they were I thought I’d give it a go. Crust was a secondary issue. Every time I spread and stir, I think of the diesel I use. I use a side stirrer and a jet. The crust is usually up to a foot thick.

What happened next?

The day after I put the product in I could see it had started to work, the surface was bubbling away.

What have you saved?

I put it in in December 2008 and spread it in March 2009 on meadowland. Instead of putting two and a half bags of fertiliser on I put on one bag only. I’ve saved at least £3,000. Also, my mixing time is reduced from 1 hour to 20 minutes.

Have you noticed any other benefits?

Finally, I’ve noticed that using more slurry over bagged nitrogen the grass does not rot at the bottom. The result was my first cut this year was one of the biggest I’ve ever had. The slurry seems to soak in a lot better and we’ve been able to use the splash plate.

Would you recommend SlurryKing products to other farmers?

Absolutely. I’ve told lots of folk already about it.
