MicroSolutions™ EDTA chelated nutrients can help correct and prevent nutritional deficiencies in crops to deliver bigger yields
Nutra-Flo, a leading provider of starter and foliar applied liquid fertilizers is excited to launch the new MicroSolutions micronutrients line of products. The MicroSolutions line of chelated micronutrients have the highest efficiency, which means growers can use less product per acre to achieve the same results as compared to non-chelated nutrients. Growers can blend MicroSolutions micronutrients with liquid fertilizer to help correct and/or prevent micronutrient deficiencies, which can be one of the largest stresses on crop growth and development.
“The MicroSolutions line will help growers correct the micronutrient deficiencies that their crops may have,” said Raun Lohry, President of Nutra-Flo Company. “Not getting the right amount of certain micronutrients can really starve crops and reduces yield potential. Today’s high yields and stressful growing conditions can remove more nutrients than ever from the soil, and can render naturally occurring micronutrients temporarily unavailable when the plant needs them the most. Using the MicroSolutions line with starter fertilizer at planting time helps prevent these deficiencies.”
Dennis Zabel, Nutra-Flo Agronomist added, “because essential crop functions are dependent on complex interactions between NPK and micronutrients, we need to consider Liebig’s Law of the Minimum: Yields are limited by the nutrient in shortest supply. If a grower’s goal is to improve fertilizer efficiency while growing more with less – they shouldn’t overlook the power of MicroSolutions micronutrients.”
Available in 2.5 gallon jugs, 250 gallon totes or in bulk, the new MicroSolutions micronutrients are compatible with all types of fertilizers including 100% orthophosphates and many herbicides and insecticides. The chelated micronutrients available are: copper (7.5%), calcium (3%), boron (10% not chelated), iron (4.5%), manganese (6%), zinc (6% and 9%), RGS® (Nutra-Flo’s zinc ammine acetate product, chemically identical to ACA®) and specialty mixes designed for specific crop types such as corn and soybeans. MicroSolutions are immediately available through the Nutra-Flo network of dealers for sale.
Why use a chelated micronutrient? The molecular structure in EDTA chelates protects zinc, manganese, calcium, copper and iron from ‘tie-up’ in the soil and makes the micronutrient available to plants and ensures maximum effectiveness.
RoMax7™ Corn-Starter Bundle added to the PureGrade® line of liquid fertilizers to help boost corn yields
Contains RGS® (Root Growth Stimulator) Nutra-Flo’s zinc ammine acetate, chemically identical to ACA®
Nutra-Flo Company announces the newest addition to the PureGrade product line of low-salt liquid fertilizers, RoMax7. RoMax7, a corn-starter bundle, contains a special blend of seven nutrients, (7-17-3) nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium, plus chelated micronutrients zinc, manganese, copper, and iron. Like all PureGrade products, RoMax7 can be safely used in close proximity to the seed, roots, and foliage for better fertilizer efficiency. RoMax7 also contains RGS, Nutra-Flo’s zinc ammine acetate.
“We’re excited to offer this new product. As a corn-starter bundle, RoMax7 takes the guesswork out of planting. Growers can depend on RoMax7 to make their lives much easier,” said Ed Ummach, Vice President of the PureGrade Products Division. “RoMax7 helps prevent micronutrient deficiencies. Essential crop functions are dependent on complex interactions between NPK and micronutrients. The correct amount of some nutrients – and not enough of others – can starve your crops and reduce your yield potential.”
RoMax7 delivers the same features found in all PureGrade Liquid Starter Fertilizers. The result is a more efficient use of valuable nutrients and higher yields. Crops that respond to RoMax7 include corn, soybeans, canola, cotton, wheat, and milo.
Additionally, RoMax7 with RGS is useful for zinc deficient soils, one of the most common micronutrient deficiencies. Zinc ammine acetate products like RGS have been proven in field trials – on millions of acres – to increase root mass and improve yields. RGS can stimulate vigorous root growth, help intercept more nutrients and can stimulate deeper root growth to access more subsoil moisture and penetrate compacted soils.
