David Dysart – Dairy Farmer
Western Bays, Taupo
“Our farm was going backwards despite large fertiliser costs. We got agKnowledge involved in 2004 and thanks to his science background Dr Edmeades quickly identified and solved the problem – the soils were grossly potassium deficient. Because the soil P levels were above optimal no P but high rates of potash were recommended. Importantly we have had no problems with animal health. I have no hesitation in recommending agKnowledge’s services to other farmers”.
Since 2004 total production has increased by 22% and fertiliser costs have decrease and are now below $0.40/kg MS.
