Fertilizer and Soil Amendment Product Roundup 2014


"Product Roundup" of the latest Fertilizer and Soil Amendment offerings from some of the industry's leading suppliers.

Chandler Dry Seed Treat from MidWest Bio-Tech


Give plant roots a biological boost to higher yields. Chandler Dry Seed Treat is a talc-based enzyme seed treatment that improves emergence and early plant health in corn, soybeans and other seeded crops. The main ingredients are nontoxic enzymes that initiate an early start to seed germination. It also includes trace amounts of micronutrients to feed the soil microbes that promote emergence and early root growth. The seedlings emerge faster and build a deeper root system. This helps seedlings access more water and nutrients so they can overcome early-season problems like insect/disease damage, cool or crusted soils, excessively dry or wet weather, or heavy residue cover.

Pro-Germinator® from Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers


Phosphorus is a critical nutrient for plant health in both the early stages of crop development as well as during reproduction. AgroLiquid’s Pro-Germinator is formulated to be available to the crop during both stages. A low-salt, planting-time fertilizer that is seed safe for most crops, Pro-Germinator permeates the area around the seed, providing starter benefit as well as continuous phosphorus availability. Pro-Germinator represents the overall philosophy of AgroLiquid’s commitment to generating maximum crop response. A unique formulation that involves carbon chelation, phosphorus in Pro-Germinator is protected until the plant is ready to absorb it, resulting in high efficiency of use.

Sure-K® from Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers


Sure-K® from Agro-Culture Liquid FertilizersSure-K® from Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers Not only have years of replicated research proven that recommended applications of Sure-K are more efficient than other potassium fertilizers, Sure-K’s formulation allows for flexible application options, making it a valuable tool for growers. It's gentle to live plant tissue, making it safe for both foliar and fertigation application, as well as suitable for both planter-time and sidedress applications. This flexibility allows application timing to match the nutrient needs of the crop and improve operational efficiency by reducing trips across the field. Prescriptive applications of readily usable potassium benefit crops where quality is important to profitability.

microLink® from Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers


Balance is critical to crop performance, and it’s not just limiting factors that apply. An excess of one nutrient can cause reduced uptake of another, creating a deficiency even where sufficient micronutrients exist in the soil. An excess of potassium may compete with magnesium uptake. In some fields, heavy phosphorus application may induce zinc deficiency. Even excess iron may cause manganese deficiency. In addition to reduced yield, crops grown with insufficient micronutrients — whether because the soil is deficient or proper uptake was prevented — may exhibit reduced quality. With a soil test, AgroLiquid’s micronutrient products can be economically applied at planting time to prevent yield- and quality-robbing deficiencies.

B-Hume from FHR


B-Hume is a soil biology activator. It contains humid acid, fulvic acid, carbohydrates and naturally fractured polyhydroxy acids. B-Hume also contains trichoderma, azotobacter and mycorrhizae, which are beneficial soil micro-organisms. B-Hume establishes a growth medium for beneficial soil microbiology. This allows the soil microbes to establish an explosive population, increases their growth and increases their metabolism. This aids the crop in resisting soil pathogens and reduces stress due to environmental changes. As the microbial population increases, fertilizer and nutrients should be made more available to the roots in a plant-usable form. B-Hume can be mixed with most fertilizers and soil amendments.

Solvita Soil Biology Test from Woods End Labs


Solvita® is a new soil test method from Woods End Laboratories which measures soil CO2 respiration, the biological expression of soil fertility. This innovation makes measuring the activity of soil microbes practical and cost-effective. Solvita is available in two applications: one for the field and a quantitative form for the commercial laboratory. Years of evaluation show these traits are directly linked to potential nitrogen mineralization. The ability to accurately measure the turnover of soil carbon, linked to natural nutrient cycles, will help provide farmers informed guidance to reduce unneeded nitrogen fertilization while providing insight into soil improvements from sound practices.

N-Yield Nitrogen Urease Inhibitor from Eco Agro Resources


NEW! N-Yield™ is an environmentally friendly nitrogen urease inhibitor used to treat urea-based fertilizers to improve retention of nitrogen content in soil. It contains a safe solvent system that stabilizes NBPT (n-butyl thiophosphoric triamide) to help inhibit the conversion of urea to ammonia and carbon dioxide, resulting in greater efficiency. When N-Yield™ is blended with urea and UAN fertilizer, it improves nitrogen retention, allowing it time to move into the soil. This allows crops more time to absorb nutrients. The impact of more nitrogen availability, under the right growing conditions, may lead to higher crop yields. N-Yield Technology can be found in Nitrogain by Arclin.
