The quality of your cereals is contingent on appropriate fertilisation

Oxyfertilisation« is a fertilisation concept that is based on providing a carefully worked out supply of six major elements, namely, calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K), and sulphur (S), in a 100% available form.

Cereals also need calcium and magnesium, which are indispensable for good plant growth. These calcium and magnesium requirements are even greater if the straw is exported.

Oxyfertil« lets you manage the supply of these six elements optimally.


The synergy that develops in supplying the cereal with the six major minerals N, P, K, S, Ca, and Mg enhances the fertilisation's effectiveness.
Trials have shown that using Oxyfertil« can increase cereal yields by close to 120 kg/hectare.

Enhancing inorganic fertiliser' effects

Thanks to the strong base that Oxyfertil« contains, the minerals' root uptake will be increased, thereby enabling the cereal to meet its needs.

The right amount of nitrogen in the cereal's food supply will determine its protein quality. The RAMSES index measures the nitrogen in the cereal's diet. Below an index of 20 the plant's requirements are not met.

Oxyfertil« boosts the effectiveness of organic fertilisers.

Foliar fertilisation
Despite the presence of nutrients in the soil, root uptake is not always sufficient to ensure good plant growth. A plant can experience occasional food supply flaws.

Agriculture Balthazard & Cotte has developed a foliar fertilisation range that provides the plant with an alternative source of minerals. This is the FOLIOSTIM« range.

The CERESTIM« solution allows for cereals' specific sensitivities (Mg, Mn, and Cu) in order to enable the crop to express its productivity potential to the fullest.

The QUALISTIM« solution boosts the last nitrogen inputs to optimise kernel quality.
