Alex5211 1 Posted February 5, 2011 Share Posted February 5, 2011 I have read through the rubber topics here but I have not found a discussion about the different brands, ingredients and prices for rubber tree fertilizers. Except that a rough estimate for a 50kg bag is about 1000 Baht. I heard some poor thai farmers in my wife´s village are buying the fertilizers and sometimes they do not even work. The seller says: I cannot do anything about that etc. and they just accept it. Following Brands seem to work or to be ok although they differ greatly of what ingredients they contain: Yara Katai (Rabbit brand) with following ingredients: 15% N - 15% P²O² - 15%K²O - 3,5% CaO And there is supposed to be organic fertilizers from Malaysia that are less than half the price and they are supposed to work as good. I am suspicious of that. What ingredients for young and old rubber trees do you suggest? How much right now is a 50kg bag of for example Yara or Katai or a similar brand? Do you have any suggestion for any brand and how to buy it? through which channels? What has worked for you? Right now I have offers for 50kg bags of different brands starting from 830 to 950 Baht including transport or 810 Baht without transport in Northern Isaarn. I want to buy 50 or up to 500 bags of 50kg each and I need a good source and a good product. How long can you store these fertilizers? Years And last but not least: what is your experience with fertilizing 2,3 or 4 times a year. Is 2 times optimal for expenses/return? Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
