Fert Focus Podcast Episode 3: Testing and Measuring with Jeff Rutten of JT AgSpreading

Jeff Rutten started JT AgSpreading shortly after selling the family farm. He purchased the Multi 4000 from the new owners and went out contracting. When last year’s 190 units N/Ha went into force Jeff’s business took off. Now with three Multi 4000’s on the fleet and Multi 1000 as well, Jeff is seeing clear results on his client’s farms that suggest the regulations are having a positive effect on farms and farmers systems, growing more grass and producing more milk with healthier, happier cows.

Jeff has pioneered a test and measure approach with his clients ensuring he can prove to prospects that the foliar application of fert through a Tow and Fert will have a positive impact on their farm. In this episode, Mike and Jolyon quiz Jeff on what he has seen on-farm, why the results he sees are relatively easy to achieve, and what the future holds for the application of fertiliser in a foliar form.
