A compound fertiliser is not the same as a blend

Ensure an even application of all nutrients by using a YaraMila compound fertiliser rather than risk the segregation and uneven distribution you get when using a blend

What is YaraMila?

YaraMila is a quality trademark guaranteeing the product is a complex compound fertiliser where all the nutrients declared on the bag are in every particle. 

Compound fertiliser

Each identical particle contains the correct balance of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and sulphur

Compound fertiliser

Blended fertiliser

Made up of completely separate particles of N, P and K. Often with a large variation in bulk density and particle size.

Blended fertiliser

Why use a compound fertiliser?

  • Every particle contains all the nutrients. YaraMila compound fertilisers include each nutrient (nitrogen,phosphorus, potassium and sulphur) in the correct proportions in every particle which simply guarentees the correct nutrient analysis.
  • Even application of nutrients. Because all the particles in a compound fertiliser are the same size and weight they spread uniformly giving an even application of nutrients.
  • More nutrient landing sites. Using a compound fertiliser typically results in ten times more landing sites compared to a blended fertiliser. Simply because blended fertilisers often contain some nutrients like phosphate in a much more concentrated form so this distribution is never as good as with a compound.

Correct analysis

Each and every YaraMila particle is guaranteed to contain the correct nutrient analysis

Even application

YaraMila compound fertiliser means an even application with uniform coverage

More landing sites

YaraMila compound fertiliser gives approximately 10 x the number of landing sites

What are the practical advantages?

  • No segregation of nutrients. There is simply no segregation of nutrients during transport, handling or application. Because all the granules have consistent particle size and bulk density no segregation is possible.
  • No compromised spreader settings. There is no trade-off or compromise when setting the spreader, unlike when spreading a poor size matched blend when each component may require different spreader settings.
  • Spread further and more evenly. YaraMila compounds are all strong granules which can easily be spread further without the risk of shattering and dust, unlike many blends which often contain weak prills prone to shatter when they are hit by the vanes.

Wider spreading

YaraMila fertiliser quality means it spreads further allowing a wider bout width

Confidence that every granule delivers what's needed

  • Fast acting nutrients for immediate growth.  YaraMila compounds all contain immediately available major nutrients in the forms prefered by plants: nitrate, phosphate, potash and sulphate
  • Unique season long phosphate.  YaraMila compounds contain a unique mix of phosphate forms to ensure season long availablility meaning more phosphate is available when the plants need it and less is locked-up by the soil.

YaraMila fertilisers are designed with a unique mix of phosphate forms for extended supply

Premium in quality and design

  • Full traceability.  All YaraMila compounds fertilisers are fully traceable all the way back to Yara's own European factories, this gives complete assurance and peace of mind.
  • Low carbon footprint.  YaraMila compound fertilisers are all made in Yara's own factories which all have guarenteed low carbon footprint to help reduce the environmental impacts of fertiliser manufacture and use.
  • Guarenteed analysis. YaraMila fertilisers all have a guarenteed analysis so you can be completely sure that what is is on the bag is in the bag. Nothing else, just the nutrients you need, and nothing less, as you should expect.
