This sugar cane farm in the Richmond area had issues with both the yield and the quality of the crop. The number of tillers, their size, and their BRIX percentage had all declined to unsatisfactory levels, all of which were impacting results.

Adding fertilizer in higher quantities was not desirable so after taking soil samples, Oasis-Agri developed a custom treatment plan that included Oasis 88 which was applied at a rate four litres per hectare at planting.
