Liquid fertilisers are a cost-effective and high-performing solution for many growers.
Their use can increase yield and produce healthier crops due to the guaranteed even spread during application and improved nutrient uptake.
Liquids also go hand-in-hand with variable rate technology, meaning you can make more targeted applications designed to meet the specific needs of your crop. As a result, nutrition programmes are optimised, contributing to improved economic use and a more sustainable farming system overall.
Benefits of liquid fertiliser
New to liquid? Frontier's specialists have you covered.
Our tank rental scheme removes the burden of planning a switch to liquid yourself. Our experts can support you with the position, siting and size of your tanks, safe and secure installation, advice around sprayer equipment and of course ongoing product choice.
If tanks or changes to machinery aren’t an option – don’t worry. Our contracting service means you can still opt for liquid without changing your farm’s infrastructure.
We understand an immediate switch to liquid won’t suit or work for everyone. The breadth of expertise in our nutrition team and wide product range mean we can provide solutions to support a combination of both liquid and solid applications.
|Help with product stewardship and efficiency
The UK has a legal requirement to reduce ammonia pollution by 16% by 2030. 88% of the UK's current ammonia emissions are attributed to agriculture and although efforts are underway across the industry to improve efficiency and reduce losses for both economic and environmental reasons, products such as urea require specific stewardship.
As of 1st April 2024, all applications of liquid UAN fertiliser must include a urease inhibitor.
Urease inhibitors, such as BASF's Limus Perform, can be added to the spray tank as and when required. This will be needed for all applications after the above regulatory date, but it would also be the case during any warm or dry conditions before then in order to prevent volatilisation and improve crop performance.
