Cefetra Ltd has partnered with Anglo American’s Crop Nutrients to distribute the environmentally friendly crop nutrition product POLY4 in the UK, Ireland and 33 countries in Europe.
POLY4 is a multi-nutrient, low-chloride fertiliser derived from a naturally occurring polyhalite mineral. With no chemical processing and low carbon footprint during manufacturing, POLY4 is organically certified and offers season-long crop nutrition by supplying four essential nutrients – potassium, sulphur, magnesium, and calcium – in one product. This balanced nutrition, backed up by years of global agronomic data, will help increase yields, improve crop quality, and enhance structure and nutrient legacy of soils.
The mission is to help farmers to increase crop production by improving their efficiency, effectiveness, flexibility, and sustainability – the four cornerstones of POLY4 – to support growers in maximising crop productivity while safeguarding their soil.
In parallel, Anglo American and Cefetra Ltd are conducting a five-year trial with a number of farmers on soil carbon sequestration. The aim of the research is to understand possibilities of capturing carbon in the soil, measuring carbon storage potential as well as the crop nutrient uptake. The outcome of this project will help to enhance a roadmap and support more sustainable farming practices in the future.
