Getting cooler but beware!

April 18, 2019

Spore counts remain high this week.  With cooler nights, counts may trend down but don’t think you are safe!

Grass samples tested this week from the MVS Monitor Farms have shown the following:

  • Hinuera Monitor Farm –   61,700 spores/grams
  • Matamata Monitor Farm – 8,333 spores/grams
  • Te Poi Monitor Farm – 48,300 spores/grams
  • Tirau Monitor Farm – 128,333 spores/grams
  • Walton Monitor Farm – 6,666 spores/grams

Before you stop using Zinc on your farm make sure you know what spore numbers are doing.  They need to be reliably below 10,000 spores/gram.

Remember to see us first for your competitive prices on all your zinc requirements this season.
