At Openfield we recognise that each crop needs its own tailored nutrition package. Our FACTS (Fertiliser Advisers Certification and Training Scheme) qualified Farm Business Team can offer advice on crop nutrition, fertiliser recommendations and legislative requirements, while understanding the pressures of farming life.
Openfield is able to offer a range of products tailored to suit your needs. We work with a wide range of suppliers including CF Fertilisers, Yara UK and Origin Fertilisers, to give our growers access to the best products and advice, supported by widespread trials.
We supply the best quality products, backed by manufacturers that share our principle of a long-term commitment to advice and the highest levels of service.
It’s why one of our key partners is CF Fertilisers, the UK’s premier fertiliser manufacturer. CF Fertilisers supplies a range of high quality formulations, including:
The UK’s leading nitrogen brand.
A high quality, granulated ammonium sulphate and ammonium nitrate fertiliser for crops that have a high sulphur demand.
A flexible sulphur product to provide nitrogen and sulphur throughout the season.
Openfield also work closely with a number of regional and national blenders and shippers to supply fresh ‘straights’ and blends that meet your individual requirements. Omex, our liquid fertiliser partner, provides Total Crop Nutrition via a full range of liquid fertilisers, including unique suspensions, foliar feeds and plant health promoters.
All of our products are backed by a full advisory service. For example, through our work with CF Fertilisers, we offer the CF Fertilisers N-Min® testing service. This provides one of the most accurate means of measuring the amount of residual nitrogen in the soil, as well as an estimation of the amount of nitrogen that will become available over the growing season.
In addition, the EnCompass® nutrient planning program (designed in conjunction with the Environment Agency) helps our team to produce accurate fertiliser recommendations. These make use of local knowledge and expertise to maximise productivity whilst taking account of environmental needs.
Soil testing is also available, ranging from the standard P, K, Mg and pH tests, through to broad spectrum analyses that cover a dozen elements and Cation Exchange Capacity. Leaf analysis is available in both standard N, P, K and Mg form and broad spectrum analyses.
Nutrient planning advice is available from our crop protection and advisory partner Agrovista through its agrogate division. Growers can receive individual fertiliser programmes tailored to match the farm’s soil type and crop end-market requirements. Advice on the application of precision farming technology from Precision Decisions, arguably the UK’s leading precision farming specialist and a long-standing partner of Agrovista.
Accurate application saves money, protects the environment and optimises yields. And no matter how good the fertiliser plan, inaccurate spreading will result in a higher environmental impact, reduced yields and lower profits. We work closely with SCS Spreader & Sprayer Testing Limited to minimise inaccuracy in customer application equipment.
