Introducing Foltec SG

Soluble. Sensible. Superb.

 

Foltec SG is an innovative foliar nutrient technology from The Andersons.

 

Designed to be different, Foltec SG will change the way superintendents and turf managers think about complex foliar nutrition programs.



The Foltec SG difference:
Soluble. Sensible. Superb.
 

Soluble

Unlike industry standard liquid fertilizers consisting of numerous formulations and packaged in cumbersome plastic jugs, Foltec SG is a proprietary combination of dry soluble granules (SG) that quickly solubilize in the spray tank. This combination of soluble granules creates a complete nutrition product that reduces the need for a complex tank mix using a wide variety of products.  Each Foltec SG product contains a specific N-P-K ratio along with essential micronutrients, UltraMate SG® and sea plant extract. 

Foltec SG is available in four formulations which have been shown to fit the parameters of a typical foliar applied fertility program and include High N, High P, High K and High N and K formulations.

    24-0-8 0 1.0 0.5 0.07 0.1 0.5 0.16
    8-0-24 0.5 1.0 0.5 0.07 0.07 0.5 0.16
    8-24-8 0.5 1.0 0.5 0.07 0.07 0.25 0.16
    16-0-16 0.5 1.0 0.5 0.07 0.07 0.5 0.16

 

APPLICATION

Foltec SG can be introduced into the spray tank through an inductor, or by removing the basket strainer and pouring Foltec SG directly into the spray tank, with adequate water and agitation. In field testing with self-contained spray rigs with typical agitation, Foltec SG solubilized quickly and thoroughly. Foltec SG products have also been shown to be compatible with many commonly used control products.
 

Sensible

Foltec SG is innovative and is designed to be different than the standard liquid foliar fertility products in many sensible ways.

PACKAGING
Foltec SG is packaged in a resealable foil-lined bag with an easy open tear strip to save time and effort during mixing and loading. There are no plastic jugs to triple rinse and recycle.

COVERAGE
Foltec SG is packaged based on application rate and coverage. A single 13.6 lb. bag will cover 1 acre at the typical application rate. A case contains 3 x 13.6 lb. bags which will cover 3 acres. 

STORAGE
Because Foltec SG utilizes dry soluble granules, it will not freeze or require heated storage and special handling requirements like liquid formulations do. Foltec SG can be shipped at any time of the year under all weather conditions.

COST EFFECTIVE
Foltec SG is a combination of N-P-K, micronutrients, UltraMate SG® and sea plant extract which provides complete nutrition and reduces the need to create a complex tank mix using a variety of products. The cost in use of Foltec SG (for a typical two week interval foliar spray program) will be comparable to other mid-tier liquid industry standards and can also be less expensive than many other competitors.
 

Superb

N-P-K
Foltec SG is formulated in four of the most widely used agronomic N-P-K ratios: High N (24-0-8), High P (8-24-8), High K (8-0-24), and High N and K (16-0-16). These formulas can be easily combined to create your preferred N-P-K ratio. 

MICRONUTRIENTS
Foltec SG utilizes chelated micronutrients in a proven ratio that maximizes availability, efficacy and performance.

ULTRAMATE SG
UltraMate SG is an Andersons-exclusive formulation of soluble sulfonated potassium humate which provides an oxidized source of carbon. UltraMate SG contains a combination of fulvic and humic acids which allow plants to utilize applied nutrients more effectively and efficiently. UltraMate SG also provides a wide range of soil benefits which include chelation of nutrients and increased uptake of soil N and P.

SEA PLANT EXTRACT
Foltec SG contains sea plant extracts derived from the most biologically active sea plant species in the world. They contain a complex array of organic and mineral compounds which include cytokinins, vitamins, sugars, enzymes and proteins that combine together to promote improved wear and drought tolerance. Foltec SG utilizes the proven 3:1 ratio of humic acid to sea plant extract for maximum plant health benefits based on research conducted at Virginia Tech University.1

Mixing and Compatibility Information

Please read mixing instructions prior to use.


PRODUCT INFORMATION
Foltec SG is a concentrated soluble granule fertilizer for foliar spray applications for Turf, Nursery or Agriculture.


DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Foltec SG can be applied to golf greens and all other turf types, ornamental and specialty crops including fruits, vegetables, trees, vines and flowers. Application rates and frequency are dependent upon soil and climate conditions present. See chart below for application rates and dilutions rates. 
 

Adding to the Spray Tank

The easiest way to explain how easy Foltec SG is to add to your spray tank and apply is to show you:

 

 


INDUCTOR
This is the easiest method for adding Foltec SG to the spray tank.

  • Fill tank with at least half of water volume required and begin agitation.
  • Open package and slowly pour Foltec SG into the inductor while continuing to add the required amount of water.


TOP TANK OPENING
Remove basket strainer to speed the process.

  • Fill tank with at least two thirds of water volume required and begin agitation. 
  • Open package and slowly pour Foltec SG into the tank while continuing to add the required amount of water.
  • Foltec SG has been tested and shown to be very soluble with adequate agitation, typical of most self-contained spray units. The basket strainer can be used, but will require more time to wash material through.

 

Compatibility With Other Chemicals

Check the list below for a current list of compatible control products and nutrients. 

These summarized results are based on replicated university testing. Be sure to jar test before using any new combinations in your operation.

You can also perform a compatibility check by:

  • Mixing each product in a clear container in the same proportion to be used in the field
  • Agitating for at least 60 seconds
  • Visually observing for precipitate

Research

Over the last three years, Foltec SG has been developed and field tested to ensure maximum solubility and superb agronomic performance.

Replicated testing at Michigan State University and the University of Arkansas confirms excellent performance on ultradwarf varieties of bentgrass and bermudagrass.

When compared to a leading competitor’s program, treatments that included Foltec SG had superior quality and color. Through this testing it was determined that Foltec SG provided exceptional greening of the turf canopy within a very short period of time following application. This quick green up surpassed the performance of the leading competitor and impressed the researchers at both universities.

The results of the studies at Michigan State University and the University of Arkansas are shown below.
