In December 2018, SLTEC® conducted a trial of liquid popup fertiliser applied to maize. The popup was SLTEC® Corn Popup™ applied at 80 L/ha via furrow jet. The trial and control both received exactly the same fertiliser program, except for the application of liquid popup.

As a part of SLTEC’s commitment to R&D, we have initiated a range of bio efficiency trials in major Almond growing areas. Our aim is to ensure that we are not only delivering cost effective liquid fertilizer options; but also inputs and advice that assist you to improve and maintain the productivity and sustainability of your soil.
