Before buying fertiliser and hooking on the tanker when the slurry spreading period opens, take the time to plan out which fields to target with urea, CAN, compound fertiliser and slurry.

Rather than just spreading slurry on the driest fields or those closest to the yard, targeting slurry to silage fields or grazing ground which is low in phosphate (P) and potash (K) will result in higher spring grass growth.
