Osflo High K Maize

Achieve high maize silage and grain yields with the correct nutrients and soil composition. 

Long-term maize paddocks require higher nutrient inputs for healthy crops. Good fertiliser management ensures your maize crops will thrive in the long term.

Osflo High K Maize Blend provides the nutrients required for a high-quality maize crop, with potassium for an extra boost.

Maize crops produce high dry matter yields. This means they have a high requirement for nutrients especially nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). 

The average maize silage crop contains about 1.1% nitrogen (N), 0.2% phosphorus (P) and 1.2% potassium (K). So a maize silage crop yielding 20 T DM/ha will take up around 220 kg N, 40 kg P and 240 kg K. 

Before planting, ensure you have a recent soil test, collected from 0-15 cm deep from your intended maize paddock. 

Maize grown on the dairy farm can add value to farms’ feed supply. This mitigates climatic risk and extracts soil nutrients from high fertility effluent paddocks. 

Maize is an effective ‘break crop’ in the pasture renewal process. This is because Maize has a deep rooting structure (up to 1.8 m.) This allows maize to utilise nutrients that have dropped below the root zone of shallow-rooted pasture species. 

Well planned fertiliser management is a key part of growing good maize crops.

Osflo Fertilisers are some of the most cost effective fertilisers on the market. They are a unique blend of essential nutrients, combined with organic matter, which is beneficial to all farming systems.
