New Zealand soils are unique – they are naturally slightly acidic with low P-levels. A good soil set-up isn’t the end of the story. While it’s important, you won’t obtain good results unless all the necessary nutrients are also present in the soil and in the right amounts. We call this a balanced soil system – and that’s what TerraCare fertilisers are formulated to provide.
