I don't know how much 128kgs granular N / ha yielded as they didn't do that quantity of granular N but they did for 247kgs N / ha. Treatments 4, 5 and 6 all had the same total N applied (207kgs) with treatments 4 & 5 receiving 7kgs from E28 and treatment 6 and additional 7kgs N from AN.

Treatment 4 yielded 10.9 t/ha with a protein % of 12.98
Treatment 5 yielded 11.1 t/ha with a protein % of 12.91
Treatment 6 yielded 11.15 t/ha with a protein % of 12.77

As a company we actively try and encourage farmers to use less total N while trying to maintain a comparable yield which is why most of our trials are comparing a reduced total N application. For me, the biggest benefit of using foliar N is in reducing the environmental impact artificial fertilisers can have as well as the improvements in both soil health and crop health.

This is the headline I would like to be talking about with Foliar N but most farmers are still only interested in yield... however, if you bare with me:
40kgs N / ha from EU produced AN = 394.2 kgs CO2 equivalents
7kgs N / ha from Efficie-N-t 28 = 67.75 kgs CO2 equivalents.

If you replaced AN with E28 over 10ha you would have saved 3,264.5kg CO2 equivalents.
That's the same CO2 emissions given off by a Ford Focus 1.5L eco-boost driving almost 15,000 miles.

We are currently operating with a monthly price and April is already sold out. We dont yet have the May price but have pretty much sold out of that as well. I would speak to your local agronomy company to find out if they have any stock and if so, at what price.

I have attached a little booklet with some information and trial results from the main crops.View attachment 1030601If you wanted to see some specific trial results for a specific crop in a specific area let me know and I will see what I can find.
I think you will find most farmers are interested in profitable production.
Once again approximately how much is your product?

We supply a number of Foliar N products all with very limited availability. April has sold out, May we dont have a price for yet and is almost sold out anyway and I have no idea what June is going to bring.

Based on figures I have heard for Foliar N products this year you could be paying anywhere from £1,900 and £3,800 / IBC. Whatever price you pay, with AN @ 800/t or £92/ha for 40kgs N even if you pay the top price of £3,800 / IBC that's only £76/ha, so a £16/ha saving for a comparable yield.

The Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI) alongside the Farm Safety Partnership (FSP), has named new farm safety champions and commended the outstanding work on farm safety that has been carried out in the farming community in the last 20 years.

Two of these champions are Malcom Downey, retired principal inspector for the Agri/Food team in HSENI and Harry Sinclair, current chair of the Farm Safety Partnership and former president of the Ulster Farmers’ Union (UFU).

Improving farm safety is the key aim of HSENI’s and the FSP’s work and...
