Increase Your Soil Performance
John Bourne & Co. has a long-standing commitment to farmers in Kent, Sussex and Surrey. We are dedicated to helping farmers adhere to eco-friendly, sustainable farming practices.
We offer the following agriculture products:
- Ground and Screened Chalk, Magnesium Limestone
High levels of acidity can lead to poor yields and even crop failures. We offer a "delivered & spread" service from quarries around the region, for both open field application and orchard / vineyard application.
- FREE Soil pH testing
This can help locate acid patches to enable spot liming. This ensures that the pH level is optimal for plant growth.
- Organic manures and composts
Restoring organic matter levels to depleted soils is an important part of modern farming. We have the vehicles and compost to offer a "delivered & spread" service for most situations.
- Cattle bedding materials
From local sands to woodchip.
Primary and recycled from local quarries, railheads, ports and transfer stations.
Compost/Lime Spreading and Fertiliser
One factor that is critical to ensuring healthy, robust crops is soil quality. Liming and fertilising are both integral to soil quality. At John Bourne & Co., we offer agricultural composting and lime spreading services.
We have got a new spreader built just in time for the season. It is all wheel drive and steer, with a custom chassis designed to handle the trickest of terrain. In addition, it has a leaning function for side slope stability. For now, it is set up for compost spreading but we will have a different hopper for lime and fertilisers to increase productivity alongside our current spreaders.
John Bourne & Co. can discuss various options available to ensure optimal product performance and results.
