Fertilize with ash to cover the field's need for potassium and phosphorus

With ash in your fields you get a proven and inexpensive fertilizer source. It can be included in the fertilizer plan on a par with both commercial and livestock manure.

When power plants burn straw and wood, part of the fuel is converted to ash. The ash can advantageously be used as a cheap source of phosphorus and potassium. Unlike the organic products, there is very little nitrogen content in the ash, so ash does not burden your nitrogen quota.

Good reasons to use ashes:

You significantly reduce your fertilizer costs

You get potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and a variety of micronutrients

You get the ash delivered to the field

You get a precise declaration of the ashes

You can ensure a stable supply of fertilizer in the coming years

Ash does not increase the requirement for crops

Ash can be used as fertilizer in all areas and is applied at all times of the year – even for several consecutive years, as long as the rules in the Bio-ash Order are complied with. Ash should not be incorporated into the soil as long as nothing but cereal and seed crops are grown half a year after the field has received ash.

Amount 1-8 tons
Phosphorus 10-70 kg
Potassium, kg/ha 40-250 kg

Comparable to commercial fertilizers

Recent major land trials with straw mask as fertilizer with a focus on potassium cover 3-year trials in cereals.
The result was that an allocation of straw mask had the same effect during the cultivation year and the two subsequent years as an annual allocation of commercial fertilizer (potassium chloride). Therefore, straw masks can be directly compared to commercial fertilizers.
At the same time, the risk of ash causing structural damage to your soil is significantly less than when you receive manure. Ash is often released on stubble soils just after harvest, where the soil is dry and not packed. The ash can also be released into the crop. Ash can be released year-round as long as it is not in areas where there is a risk of runoff to lakes, sinks and streams – for example, in heavy rainfall.

Experienced business partner

Agrotrade has extensive experience in handling residual products for agriculture, including for example bio-fertilizers (sewage sludge) .We can therefore ensure you an easy and safe delivery of the ash. Of course, we also provide all statutory paper documentation, and you can be sure that all laws and regulations are complied with. Straw mask must be covered unless the ash is dispensed shortly after receipt.
