The production quality of your crops requires good fertilisation


Oxyfertilisation® is a fertilisation concept providing carefully worked out supplies of five major elements, namely, calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K), that are 100% available for the plants and at rates that allow for the crop's requirements.

Oxyfertil® lets you manage fertilising inputs optimally.


Production quality of your sugar beets
Besides improving the productivity and sugar content of you sugar beets, spreading calcium oxide ((Oxyfertil® Ca) on a balanced soil improves its physical properties. This leads to a significant, 5% reduction in the soil tare rate in the case of sugar beets (trial conducted in Limagne).


Productivity and Quality of the potato
Like all crops, the potato is sensitive to the soil's physical characteristics. In particular, the soil's degree of acidity has direct repercussions on the potato's productivity and quality.

Contrary to common assertions, a high pH is not detrimental to potato farming. At a pH above 7.5 the additional yield of marketable potatoes will be 7 metric tonnes/ha.

Thanks to the strong base that it contains, Oxyfertil® boosts the tubers' growth whilst meeting all marketing criteria (as the 80 trials summarised in the adjacent graph show).

Despite the presence of nutrients in the soil, root intake is not always sufficient to ensure good plant growth. A plant can experience occasional food supply flaws.

Fertilização foliar

Agriculture Balthazard & Cotte has developed a foliar fertilisation range that provides the plant with an alternative source of minerals: Foliostim®.

The Stim-suc® solution allows for the sugar beet's specific sensitivities (magnesium, boron, manganese, nitrogen, and sulphur) in order to enable the crop to express its productivity potential to the fullest.
