Senior Expert with over 15 years of experience in the fertilizer industry
We wanted to find out what the best fertilizer type for the UK farming landscape, so we reached out to SCS to get an expert view. Watch the video now to see what we learned.
Compare to a prilled product, granular AN from Borealis L.A.T always offering a better coefficient of variation (CV) at all spreading widths and for all wind speed.
In windy condition, prilled AN cannot be spread up to 36m with a correct CV, an uneven spreading will lead to yield loss. At 36m, only granular AN offers a good CV, even in windy conditions.
Why is granular AN 33.5 N from Borealis L.A.T performing that precise and good even in windy conditions?
The physical characteristics of granulated fertilizers from Borealis L.A.T allow precise and even spreading even in windy conditions.
The term physical quality encompasses many physical properties that have an impact on spreading:
• mean diameter
• grain size
Up to 25km/h
More than 19 days
Compared to prilled products, Granular AN from Borealis L.A.T offers a
better coefficient of variation (CV) at all spreading widths and at all
wind speeds. In windy conditions prilled AN cannot be spread up to 36m
with a correct CV and uneven spreading will lead to yield loss. At 36m,
only Granular AN offers a good CV even in windy weather.
At 25 km/h crosswinds the tests show that Granular AN 33.5 still maintains a good spreading pattern and a correct CV, unlike the prilled products. This unique benefit of Granular AN is giving the farmers confidence to go out spreading while achieving good results.
3 times more days of applications in the spreading season is only
assured by Granular AN 33.5. UK weather makes the farmers work schedule
hard to maintain consistently. During the high season there are only 6
days with wind speeds below 15km/h, but with Granular AN farmers can
spread confidently an additional 13 days when the wind speed is up to 25
