Savings Calculator

Dry matter can be grown for as little as 12.5 cents/kg using the N-Boost® System compared to 15.6 cents/kg using solid urea*.

This is less expensive than the cost of other supplementary feeds such as palm kernel, maize, silage and baleage.

*Based on mean trial results and urea at $800.00/tonne delivered on farm.

Type in your assumptions below to work out how much money you could save on your farm.

(1)Estimated diesel cost is based on an 80KW(107HP) tractor @ 75% power @ 0.35L/per kwhr, @ $1.54/L.
(2)This is the rate of spread urea used in all trials that compared spread urea to the N-Boost system.
(3)This is the rate of dissolved urea used in all trials and is the recommended rate in the N-Boost system.
(4)This is the rate of N-Boost/Ha used in all trials and is the recommended rate/Ha in the N-Boost system.
(5)Based on the above Urea cost and assumptions.
