Mr Tree

Over the past decade I’ve always used magsulphate on the flagleaf for greening.(High locked up Mg soils here)

Agronomist wanting to change to Magnite (Mg with a bit of N) this year

What’s everyone’s thoughts ?
Do you use Mg on flag leaf?

Magnesium nitrate as a good quick uptake but short lived
magnesium sulphate is slower uptake and longer lasting and cheeper
Magnesium oxide I don’t like
Magnesium chloride is supposed to be very good as well and better uptake than the bittersalts
So my aim is 4 sulphate to one nitrate to 1 chloride

I do prefer using a mix and diverseity and I use mg sulphate for a lot off my sulphur

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
