Nutrition Farming® Organic Strawberry Guidelines
NTS has devised key Nutrition Farming® strategies for organic strawberry production that include:
- Runner treatment to minimise transplant shock and encourage rapid establishment.
- Pre-flowering foliar sprays to maximise flowering and fruit-set.
- Precision Nutrition™ – Crop monitoring techniques that allow optimum fertiliser applications, resulting in less inputs and lower costs of production.
- Tips to maintain runner health through the season and minimise the use of chemical pesticides.
- Soil Therapy™ and Plant Therapy™ services backed up by qualified agronomists.
Adequate calcium levels are critical for strawberry quality & resilience. Contains Ca, P & trace elements, perfect for fertigating.
Organic, high analysis liquid potassium, specifically designed for foliar fertilising during the potassium-hungry fruit-fill stage.
Organic source of nitrogen with the added benefit of natural chelation.
Use in pre-flowering sprays to optimise fruit-set, and ground applications for improved root health & microbe promotion.
Regular applications ensure optimum runner health and resilience.
Testimonials“It is the most exciting project we have ever had happen in our farming life. To have somebody care about our soil and follow up has been very helpful.”– Alick Beggs, Reedy Creek
Testimonials“I was simply astounded at the results. There was a massive fruit set … we harvested 250% more fruit than the previous season and fruit size was just as good as other years.”– Peter Cochrane, Cowra
Testimonials“Instead of the typical hard crust, the soil became moist and friable, and the smell was fantastic – I know there is a long way to go with this soil, but changes are already happening. Who would have thought I’d be seeing worms back in my soils again so soon!”– John Traill, Liverpool Plains
Testimonials“I now believe that this is the first time I have seen genuinely healthy mango trees. These trees are now firing along with fantastic flushes even though they are still sitting in water. I just can’t believe it. I didn’t think it was possible.”– Robert Pucciarmati, Dundee Beach
Testimonials“The trees were incredibly healthy and far more balanced than in previous seasons. There was less nitrogen sponsored wood growth resulting in a 75% reduction in pruning requirements and even the weed pressure has decreased significantly.”– Peter Cochrane
