This webpage has been created by GRDC and looks at why seeds can be damaged by fertiliser placed too close or at too high rates.
Dry soils increase the risk of harm to germinating seeds from fertilisers. Take extra care with fertiliser and seed placement this year.
The key points looked at on this webpage to achieve safe fertiliser rates with seeds include:
- soil texture and condition
- crop type
- fertiliser type
- Placement and machinery configuration
- Fluid fertilisers
This article is a revision of the 2016 post Give seeds the best chance by avoiding fertiliser damage.
