Solutions We Offer
We offer cutting-edge products for grassland farmers that have incredibly positive effects on soil health and are flexible in mode of application – applied with or through slurry or a simple farm sprayer. Our approach releases reserves of valuable nutrients and helps build resilient soils with less compaction.
Our extensive range of soil and plant products for the arable sector provides cost-effective solutions to boost biological soil and plant health and strengthen the sector’s ability to produce high quality crops.
Working with our international consultants, we have fine-tuned combinations of ingredients and products which work naturally to strengthen the crops ability to resist disease and pest levels.
Slurry is the most valuable source of complete nutrients in grassland systems and when treated with our aerobic digester it also becomes a powerful soil microbial stimulant. This allows you to make better use of this valuable resource while helping to protect soil health.
For centuries our forefathers “composted” FYM allowing it to mature for up to 2 years in the knowledge that fresh FYM was not the best use of this valuable fertiliser. We believe they were correct and have developed a system to enhance that composting process in today’s demanding legislative environment.

I have tested the Bio-Boost soil biology enhancer on some fields on my farm since 2017. In that time soil P & K levels have risen significantly despite very low application levels. I have been incorporating straw and land has not been ploughed for 20 years. Fields have been responding more like fields close to ley rather than old tillage ground.
We have been using a slurry and soil biology program as advised by APS BioAg for the past three years. Our aim is to improve soil health which is important for long term sustainability and profitability. This is an approach that yields long term benefits which are now coming to fruition. Overall, the progress made in three years has been very positive.
It is clear to see from my cows that the investment I have made in soil health and soil biology with APS BioAg is paying its way. My cows are more settled and content, hold condition better and last year we had exceptional fertility and SCC. We are growing better quality grass by making use of biologically treated slurry, using less nitrogen and ensuring soil biology is fed correctly. The grass we are growing is putting a shine on our cows like never before and they are repaying us with excellent milk solids and improved health.
