Water Treatment Sludge
ACS Agri provide Water Treatment Sludge as a recycled organic fertiliser and a useful source of nitrogen, phosphorus and organic matter. The product is sourced from the dredging of waterways and is treated at sites across the UK making it recyclable for agricultural use.
A typical nutrient analysis per tonne, as quoted by the RB209 guide:
|Dry Matter %||Total Nitrogen kg N/t||Total Phosphate kg P2Os/t||Total Potash kg k2O/t||Total Sulphur kg SO3/t||Total Magnesium kg MgO/t|
|Water Treatment cake||25||2.4||3.4||0.4||0.5||0.8|
Application rate depends on soil Phosphate index and cropping. An example application rate would be between 30- 50t/ha.
