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.
The day after I put the product in I could see it had started to work, the surface was bubbling away.
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.
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.
Absolutely. I’ve told lots of folk already about it.
