For Soil that Works for You

Unlock the productivity potential of your pastures for healthy animal production.

Fish IT for Farmers

The health of what’s under your feet is often an overlooked component of animal nutrition and production. When you increase your soil organic matter you increase plant nutrition, improve nutrient (N) efficiency and pasture quality to improve stock condition and add more production value to your animals.

The secret weapon to unleashing productivity potential.

In the same way a champion shearer needs protein and nutrients to compete, your animals need protein and nutrients to grow. Your soil provides the nutrients plants need to feed your animals, in this way the contents of your soil is what your animals eat and are comprised of. This has a major impact on their health and productivity. Even better, if we take care of our soil we take care of our environment, its a win-win.

Higher returns

Plants grown using a combination of Fish IT Refined and traditional fertilisers can grow at 30% higher yields. This is based on comparing pasture productivity in our own trials with yield data made available by existing farmers. We continually run growing trials in-house using Fish IT products, therefore expanding our range of products & improving our datasets over time.

No excess fertiliser runoff into waterways

Retain more water in the soil when it counts

Easy application all year round.

Local manufacture, smaller carbon footprint

Animals love Fish IT. Here's why you will too:

  • Higher growth rates create a quicker turnover of your product, whilst greater nutrient uptake enables you to deliver consistent pasture quality.
  • Because Fish IT helps to create a balanced soil biome pastures are provided access to a constant supply of nutrients from soil organic matter. This means plants get access to the types of nutrients they need precisely when they need them, there is less chance of losing profit to diseased or pest-impacted areas.
  • Maintain confidence in your short and long-term outputs as you transition.
  • Nurture healthy pastures in harmony with nature.

Application rates

Application of Fish It occurs at the start of each growing season. Fish It is food for the soil which in turn feed the plants with better nutrition allowing nitrogen to be taken for free from the air to lessen the need for it being applied topically. Climate and temperature vary across New Zealand but typically, the growing seasons are spread across the three warmest seasons of the year – spring, summer, and autumn. Application rates are 30 l / ha.

Fish It can be applied via a big nozzle sprayer or chopper and may be mixed with other fertiliser for a single application.
