Surflex®is the name of the range of unique micro-nutrient coated superphosphate based products coated with copper (10kg per T) using the Surflex® coating system.
Trace elements are used in very low quantities, therefore getting an even and consistent application of these elements across a paddock is difficult. The use of Surflex® technology coats every granule with the required amount of trace elements increasing the distribution of the trace element.
Superphosphate based products, then coated with copper using Surflex® technology.
Only available from the Christchurch Store – see Application and Advice for more information.
Surflex® coated products generally mixes well with other products but is not compatible with: Potassium Nitrate, Ammonium Nitrate, Mono Ammonium Phosphate (MAP), Cropmaster DAP, Calcium Ammonium Nitrate (CAN) or Urea.
Surflex® based products can be compatible with Flexi-N (magnesium coated Urea) and Ammonium Sulphate Granular under certain circumstances.
Surflex® is the name of the range of unique micronutrient coated Superphosphate based products that are manufactured using the Precision Blending Plant in Christchurch. This technology is world leading and allows the even mixing of solid fertiliser and coating of polymers onto certain fertilisers.
For coating Superphosphate based products where copper is limiting either pasture or animal production.
For sheep and cattle, rates are 1.25-2.5 kg/ha elemental copper annually in autumn, which relates to Surflex®5 copper and Surflex®10 Copper respectively. For deer rates are 2.5 kg/ha elemental copper (Surflex® 10 Copper) annually in autumn. Copper takes at least a month to get into herbage through the fertiliser so to ensure adequate levels have been reached in the herbage, test the herbage 4-6 weeks after application.
Can be stored over the season as long as it is kept in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area.
