Poultry Litter – A Soil Amendment and Source of Crop Nutrients
Farm Nutrients’ roots are grounded in providing our customers with quality poultry litter as a rich soil amendment and an exceptional source of crop nutrients.
There are many benefits to using poultry in your fertilizer program including:
- Complete source of micronutrients
- Nitrogen is mostly in organic form, providing late season N availability
- Phosphorus and potassium are readily available
- Excellent source of sulfur, calcium and magnesium
- Builds organic matter, which increases nutrient holding capacity, improves water infiltration, and reduces erosion
- Feeds beneficial soil microorganisms which improve soil health
- Ideal for all tillage practices
Additionally, we can deliver and apply the litter fertilizer to your fields with our state-of-the-art spreading equipment. For more information about our poultry litter product and services, contact your local Farm Nutrients representative.
