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.
- Bespoke Soil pH testing
This can help locate acid patches to enable spot liming. This ensures that the pH level is optimal for plant growth. Testing can be done with GPS support or by traditional field sampling.
- 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.
