Choose Polysulphate fertilizer
Using Polysulphate from our FertlizerpluS collection is one way that farming businesses can reduce their carbon footprint.
Agriculture, along with other globally important industries, is being asked to look closely at ways to reduce production of harmful greenhouse gas emissions. Environmental footprint calculations – such as the measurement of carbon footprint – have been developed for farming businesses to measure this aspect of their environmental performance and help in decision-making.
Polysulphate is a pure, natural product without any added chemicals. It is just mined, crushed and screened. Not surprisingly then, the recent study by waste and sustainability experts Filkin and Co shows that our Polysulphate has a very low carbon footprint: they calculated it to be 0.06 kg CO2 e per kilo of product. In comparison, the global warming potential they calculated for a kilo of ammonium nitrate is almost 1.2 kg CO2 e or twenty times higher.
As a natural fertilizer with a low carbon footprint and approved for use in organic agriculture, Polysulphate is the obvious choice for organic farmers. But being environmentally-sensitive is not only for them. Around the world, a growing proportion of contemporary farmers are motivated to measure their performance on environmental matters.
Reducing the carbon footprint of farming, and keeping it as low as possible, plus increasing yield and quality is possible with Polysulphate from ICL FertilizerpluS.
