Poultry Litter Fertilizer

Poultry litter is a valuable and cost effective alternative to manufactured fertiliser. It is a versatile organic manure high in Nitrogen, phosphate and Potash (N30, P25, K18 KG/fresh tonne) providing primary nutrients as well as trace elements and organic matter not present in manufactured fertiliser. It is well suited for combinable crops, roots and forage crops, with significant benefits to farms with long arable rotations which have not yet had the benefit of livestock manure.

The Benefits

Poultry litter applied at 8 tonnes per hectare (3T/acre) will provide the following plant available nutrients in the first year: Nitrogen 72kg/ha, Phosphate 120 kg/ha, Potash 130kg/ha plus beneficial levels of sulphur, magnesium and other macro and micro nutrients.

  • Improves soil organic matter
  • Beneficial to soil biology
  • Improves and maintains soil structure
  • Readily available phosphate and nitrogen improves crop establishment when incorporated into the seedbed prior to sowing eg. oilseed rape and winter wheat
  • Nutrient benefits in 2nd and subsequent years
  • Easily stockpiled and spread with conventional and rear discharge spreaders, achieving good work rates as application rates do not normally exceed 8tonne/hectare
