The four rules of fertilisation (“4Rs”) are a concept based on an integrated approach, as such the associated developed technologies enable the solving of specific problems experienced by farmers as well as increasing the efficiency of crop production in general.
By following these four rules, you achieve:
  • Consistently high yields
  • Consistently high product quality
  • The maximum effect of use of each type of fertiliser
  • Preservation of the natural balance of micronutrients in the soil and minimisation of adverse impacts on land
By ignoring these four rules, you suffer from:
  • Lower yields
  • Depletion of soil
  • Reduced quality of agricultural products
  • Land unsuitable for further use for agricultural purposes
