Nutrifert has a range of soil amendment products that are ideal for use by banana growers, including:

Oz Cal
Ultra fine granular lime

Ultra fine granular dolomite

Ultra fine granular gypsum

Soluble humate
available as a granule or powder

Grower Application

These products can be applied using grower equipment, which means optimal timing and convenience. Application can be with worm or paddle drives, spreaders or droppers.

The ability to apply using grower equipment is especially important for banana growers where there is the threat of Panama disease.  Contractors spreading lime and other fertilisers on farm can potentially lead to the spread of Panama disease. This is because the cleanliness of contractor equipment moving between and within farms cannot be guaranteed.

Prescription Blends

Granule size and hardness allows blending with NPK fertiliser for a one shot application. Nutrifert’s prescription blending services are available from depots in Brisbane and Townsville. Alternatively, the products can be applied as a straight.
