Since 1984, Taupo-based UPTAKE have been New Zealand’s experts in nutrition for maintaining soil quality and soil capability.
Completely New Zealand owned/operated, UPTAKE helps farmers with managing their soil, plant & animal health nutrition.
“Starting at the soil first, we have a greater understanding of nutritional sufficiency because we come from a farming background,” says John Davis of UPTAKE, who has more than 40 years of farming experience under his belt and understands the pressures of farming and it’s challenges.
Every good farmer knows that they must replace nutrients in their soil. Nutrients in the soil are taken away by the farming process. UPTAKE helps the farmer identify issues relating to soil imbalance including hidden hunger and other soil nutrient deficiencies. The experts at UPTAKE show the farmer how to replace nutrients in the correct ratios so as to avoid production problems that could intensify over time.
UPTAKE are the industry leaders in environmentally friendly fertiliser production and use. “If care is not taken the cost of production will erode our ability to compete internationally. If we continue to fertilise at the expense of biological quality the sustainable functions of the soil will disappear,” advises John Davis.
UPTAKE procedures include a sequence of comprehensive tests designed by UPTAKE, tested by Eurofins Scientific of Hamilton, to identify the sustainability problems that influence production on the farm. These consequences form the basis for the recommendations given by the professionals at UPTAKE.
