What is superten?

Superten is a single superphosphate, the fertiliser traditionally regarded as having most benefited New Zealand agriculture. Ballance superten is made from premium rock from North Africa. This is imported to Ballance's three manufacturing sites, where it is finely ground and treated with sulphuric acid before being granulated, cured and distributed.

Why choose superten?

The superten range of products has been designed specifically for the farmer looking for high performance and value for money. The P in superten is readily soluble in the soil environment, so is rapidly available to meet plant nutrient needs. Superten also supplies sulphur (S) and calcium (Ca), and can be blended with potassium (K) to meet individual requirements.

  • Superten is a Fertmark-registered product, giving you assurance that what’s on the label is what’s in the bag.
  • Purchases of superten products qualify for a rebate under the terms and conditions of the Ballance shareholding scheme.

Using superten

  • The superten range of products can be used alone or blended with certain other fertilisers.
  • Superten products are compatible with pasturezeal G2, serpentine super, sulphur gain, triple super and potash.
  • Superten products should not be mixed with n-rich urea, n-rich ammo, SOA or DAP. These mixes are at risk of becoming wet and lumpy, which will result in poor spreading and problems for spreading equipment.
  • Superten products should be stored in cool, dry conditions. Exposure to moisture, e.g. rain, puddles, high humidity, will cause the products to deteriorate, which will make spreading difficult.

Ballance - sulphur gain

Areas that are subject to high rainfall may suffer from significant losses of soil sulphur through leaching, and these soils are particularly likely to benefit from the use of sulphur gain. Sulphur gain is also ideal for use in capital sulphur fertiliser programmes, and provides a cost-effective way of spreading sulphur, phosphate and calcium in one hit.

A typical application of pasturemag to dairy land supplies sufficient magnesium to meet the normal maintenance requirements of most dairy operations, so helping to prevent animal health problems. Pasturemag is a convenient granular fertiliser that contains all five major plant nutrients - nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur and magnesium, plus calcium for plant and animal health.
