Farm Image have added KalFos to their SoilSolutions range; a spreadable renewable fertiliser that is rich in key nutrients containing high amounts of calcium and phosphate, and an effective replacement for traditional manufactured fertilisers.

KalFos is produced by rendering and incinerating animal by-products under an approval from DEFRA and a permit from the Environment Agency.

The application of KalFos on farmland increases soil PH values and nutrient uptake. This stimulates plant growth which improves crop and grass yield.

The key nutrients found in KalFos:

  • Calcium (CaO) 37%
  • Phosphate (P2O5) 22%
  • Potash (K2O) 4%
  • Magnesium (Mg) 1%
  • Sodium (Na) 5.5%
  • Sulphur (SO3) 4.5%
  • Copper (Cu) 160mg/kg
  • Zinc (Zn) 650mg/kg
  • Selenium (Se) 3mg/kg
  • Cobalt (Co) 4mg/kg
  • Manganese (Mn) 150mg/kg
  • Boron (B) 90mg/kg
  • Neutralising value 22%

KalFos application can be undertaken year-round, as it is not subject to any regulatory closed periods or restriction, and is of long-term benefit to both grass and arable crops, thanks to its phosphate, calcium, potash, sulphate and magnesium content, as well as its neutralising value. Phosphate is valuable to increase the rooting growth of crops, and when applied to stubble and cultivated through the soil profile, KalFos provides phosphate where the roots can easily absorb it. Unlike water-soluble TSP, the phosphate in KalFos is acid-soluble, meaning plant roots, as they exude acid, will be able to take up the phosphate, but it will not get washed off the field with heavy rainfall or flood conditions. When KalFos is applied to grass, the ideal timing is before a rain shower, but dewy conditions will also help KalFos work into the soil.
