Growing Yields by Protecting Fertilizer Inputs

Why are you settling for only fractions of availability from your fertilizer inputs? According to the USDA, the United States alone consumed over 44 million tons of N, P, and K in 2019. So with billions of dollars in the ground, settling for 20-40% of your nutritional investment seems like a huge strain on efficiency and resources like time, custom applications, and implement hours to name a few.

There is a better way and AgXplore is leading the charge.

By treating your input investment with innovative, proprietarily-derived technologies and nutrition found in MicroCoat Ultra, you can not only increase the availability of your nutrition, but you can also increase absorption. 


Why It’s Important to Treat Fertilizer Inputs

Fertilizer inputs like phosphorus and potassium make up over 40% of inputs in the US, and for good reason. 

Phosphorus is critical in a plant’s energy synthesis and utilization, especially in the processes of photosynthesis, root development and growth, and seed production. Potassium is required in the production of over 80 enzymes required for water-use efficiency and grain fill, to name a few.

However both phosphorus and potassium have varying availability due to immobility and leaching, respectively, so protecting your nutritional investment with a fertilizer management aid, like MicroCoat Ultra, can be the difference when calculating end of season return on investment.


MicroCoat Ultra Yields ROI

MicroCoat Ultra, a new, first-in-class dry phosphorus and potassium management aid, is packed with proprietarily-derived technologies, NET and nCeption, combined with a micronutrient package. Designed to boost P and K availability and absorption, MicroCoat Ultra increases nutrient efficiency and yield potential.

In a 2019 study by Agri-Tech Consulting in Whitewater, WI, MicroCoat Ultra treated fertilizer on corn outperformed the grower standard untreated fertilizer, resulting in a 9.76 bu/ac increase, and more great results keep rolling in from growers throughout the country.

Nitrogen Management, Plant Nutritionals Raise Yields, Protein and the Bar

In northwestern North Dakota, near the city of Stanley, Warren and Meredith Craft farm over 5,000 acres. Their crops for the upcoming season include spring wheat, field peas, soybeans and flax. Because their biggest crop is wheat, it’s important to have good yield and high protein levels at harvest. Protein is the key when they haul to the elevator. “They’ll discount you eight to 10 cents a bushel if you don’t make the 14 percent protein level,” Warren says.
