13 Jul Will BioAg help prevent bloat?
Bloat is caused by too much nitrogen in the plant. The nitrogen will displace phosphate in cool, cloudy or wet weather and magnesium will not be available to slow the release of nitrogen into the plant. Clover can release a lot of nitrogen in those conditions.
BioAg assists with nutrient balance in pasture and can result in improved control of problematic nitrates. However, if the conditions remain cool and wet the micro-organisms will be slow at keeping balance within the pasture and conventional bloat intervention might be required.
