10Z and 10Z blends for 2006 locations

To test new fertilisers at Marnoo.

Key messages
  • Granulock 10Z would have provided sufficient nutrients for an average season 3.75t/ha.
  • The good spring rains allowed the Granulock 10 blends: 10, 22, 24, 25 and 29 to perform to their potential because of their additional nitrogen. Granulock 10Z 29 produced the highest yield and acheived H2 quality class attracting a premium price.
  • The Granulock 10Z (S) blends did not perform as well because of lesser nitrogen levels and the soil was not sulphur responsive.
