In the late 1950s Hatuma’s Joe Topp could see that an industry driven by the use of high analysis, water soluble fertilisers would result in polluted water ways, nutrient saturated soils, and ultimately, high cost farming.

There was a reason why Joe was highly regarded as a pioneer in the agricultural industry, and his next approach was a prime example. He set out to pursue a solution that would give farmers everything they wanted in a topdressing product – provide sustained production throughout the year, but not at the soil or environment’s expense. That solution became known as Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate®.

Now 50 years later, with changing climates, increased input costs and tighter environmental rules, Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® has become the new standard for farming efficiency. Getting more for less, while building resilience and protecting the environment, is the future.

1. Long standing formula
Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® has been made according to a carefully managed process for over 50 years, proven quality and supply.

‍2. Neutral pH
With a near neutral pH of 6.5–7.0, Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® maintains a healthy, balanced soil.

3. Non-water Soluble
Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® is non-water soluble so it protects waterways by substantially reducing any phosphate run-off. The goodness stays where it’s needed for longer.

4. Plant available
The phosphate in Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® is fully plant available as the plant needs it, so you’re not going to experience the ‘highs and lows’ of pasture production, making pasture management easier.

5. Better pasture utilisation
Say goodbye to rank pastures like browntop and ratstail, and increase your pasture utilisation for easier grazing management and happier stock.

6. Less phosphate input
You’re using less phosphate than the old model of farming would’ve recommended. That’s cost-effective for your pocket and the environment.

7. Improved self-sufficiency
Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® favours earthworms. That means improved soil recycling and less reliance on costly nutrients.

8. Better national support
With a Hatuma Territory Manager only a phone call away, you’re getting indepth knowledge and product support nationwide.

9. Clover growth: less input reliance
AgResearch tests have shown that Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® has a positive effect on rhizobium bacteria. Farmers using Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® report improved and sustained clover growth.
