Mullingar company making differences to farmer’s fertiliser costs with new alternative

More and more farmers are now abandoning artificial fertilisers and turning to the Greener Fertilising Solutions or utilising them with their own fertilisers.

That is according to Ollie Greene of Betterplants.ie, who reports a notable increase in demand for their liquid seaweed extract for farmers.

He claims the product helps farmers increase yield and protect their land and the environment.

A complete nutrient package 

Greene commented: “The product offers so many benefits that make it the perfect choice for farmers looking to reduce the use of artificial fertilisers.”

“Greener Fertilising Solutions is 100% certified organic, free from artificial chemicals, rich in minerals and nutrients, and improves crops’ nutritional value.”

Ollie has been working with farmers for more than ten years and understands that getting the best quality grass and crops is paramount for farmers.

However, he believes the reduction in the use of artificial fertilisers should be the responsibility of every farmer – especially those who care about the health of farmland and the environment.

“The Greener Fertilising Solutions with liquid seaweed extract by Betterplants.ie has huge benefits that makes it the perfect solution for all farmers, organic farming, and conventional farming.”

“The liquid seaweed extract is a complete nutrient package that supplies the soil and plant with Potassium, Nitrogen, Chlorine, Sodium, Sulfur, Magnesium, Calcium, and trace elements, in good proportion.”

3 levels

Ollie continued: “Betterplants Greener Fertilising solutions product has more than just a fertiliser. Our liquid is a biostimulant, which is especially effective during critical growth stages and to overcome environmental stress situations.”

“Most importantly, when applied to grass and crops it will improve their growth and development working on 3 levels.” He outlined the following:

  • Nutritional efficiency – The grass and plants are more efficient in taking nutrients from its environments and in using them. According to Greene, the grass will be much greener;
  • Stress resistance – Grass and crops will be more tolerant to environmental stresses, cold and drought. This, he explained, is why this product is so effective in Ireland and the UK;
  • According to Greene, quality and yield will improve as once the soil/crop/ nutrients are all in balance, the crops will be high quality and yields will be higher and increase in sugar in the grass;
  • Easy to apply – Betterplants Greener Fertilisers are easy to use and ensure uniform application. When sprayed on the leaves, it delivers nutrients quickly to plants which is absorbed down to the roots. “Farmers are really pleased with this product; it can be used with other sprays and reduces growth stunt when spraying for weeds.” “It improves root development, increases microbial life in the soil, protects against plant disease, and increase resistance against weather.”

Eco-friendly and sustainable

Ollie and his team are constantly striving to improve the quality of their liquid fertilisers and creating possibilities to have better yields.

The company is passionate about the planet and is committed to delivering farming aids that are eco-friendly and sustainable.

“We are finding farmers are trying it on-20 acres first before committing to fertilise all the land,” Ollie concluded.

Furthermore, Ollie and the team have a range of natural products for gardeners that are such a git hit with gardeners all over Ireland and the UK.
