GrowHow, the UKs only manufacturer of chemicalfertilisers, has launched a new website in response to the needs of farmers: www.growhow.co.uk
In a recent GrowHow survey, the internet camesixth, behind agronomists, RB209, distributors, agricultural press and softwarepackages when farmers were asked where they go for fertiliser advice. GrowHowaims to turn that around.
The new site has a wealth of practical tools, suchas a fertiliser selector delivering product advice, rates and timings all tailored for different farm types and all with the objective of encouragingefficient fertiliser use, so that farmers save money and reduce their impact onthe environment.
Sam Bell, from GrowHow, said: We have been talkingto our customers at shows, events, focus groups and through surveys and ourregular on-farm meetings with them.
At the moment, the internet is bottom of the listof places they go for advice on fertiliser selection and crop management. Wewant to change that and provide a first-class service to them through theGrowHow website.
Our experts are conducting research all the timeso that we are able to deliver the best products for crop nutrition andultimately yield and quality. Our new website is another way of getting thatresearch into the hands of farmers to help them get better returns. We willcontinue to invest in developing the site to make it as useful as possible andbring farmers the benefit of our 50 years experience supporting them.
