Farm Focus

Straights – CAN

At Dairygold, we offer a wide range of fertiliser products in 50kg bags, 500kg bags, top lift bags or bulk. We also offer a bulk spreading service to our customers. Over 50% of all soil samples are deficient in Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K) and a further 25 to 30% of soils require annual maintenance inputs of P and K in order to replace those lost.  A deficiency of N restricts the growth of individual leaves (leaf size) and their photosynthetic capacity as well as restricting the number of tillers that develop. Trace element deficiencies are also occurring more and more frequently in grassland. These factors are all required to be taken into account when considering fertiliser application on your farm. Contact your area sales manager for further information with references to fertiliser products available from Dairygold and services that you can avail of from us.

Name Calcium Ammonium Nitrate (CAN)




27% Nitrogen

Delivery Options

Bulk, Top Lift Etc.


Calcium ammonium nitrate (CAN) is a granular fertiliser, containing 27% nitrogen. The combination of ammonium nitrogen and nitrate nitrogen makes CAN an universal and excellent fertilizer, which guarantees an optimal nitrogen supply for all plants. The high lime content of the fertilizer considerably improves the fertility of the soil, and therefore increases the growth and yield of the plants.

Supplied By



  • It is universal – can be applied in the case of all types of crops, regardless of the application period (before sowing, for top dressing).
  • It contains calcium and magnesium which improve the efficiency of absorbing nitrogen by the plants’ roots and reduce nitrogen losses, thus making fertilization more profitable; it also protects subsoil waters against pollution by nitrogen compounds. .It can lengthen the florescence, promote the root, stem & leaf to grow normally.
  • Can be considered as near-neutral in its effect on soil pH and therefore can be used on soils that have a low pH without lowering further.
  • It is a nitrogen fertilizer which contains equal parts of fast acting nitrate-nitrogen and longer lasting ammonium-nitrogen.
