Spreading Fibrophos


Mixed Farmer
Thinking about Fibrophos in the not to distant future.

I'm aware it's spread with a lime type spreader... Bredal, Amazone etc etc

My question is what widths are people spreading it too? Also what machine are you using? We're 24m tramlines and i would like to be spreading it on both established and pre-established.
I would suggest it is put on ahead of drilling so that crops have the maximum benefit of it to overwinter. That steady trickle of growth over winter keeps crops looking a lot happier.

Much much kinder on soil life than big doses of TSP or the like. For the majority of arable farms (and livestock in some cases) you should be avoiding bagged product as far as possible IMO.
