MicroCarb is a micronutrient that contains carbon substances from a vegetable origin that increase soil cation exchange capacity, improving nutrient availability. MicroCarb should be used early in the season, prior to fruit set for maximum agronomic benefit. The new improved formulation provides increased compatibility with a wider range of products.

MicroCarb Features & Benefits

  • Aids in the relief of plant stress
  • Contains a proprietary micronutrient blend that includes fulvic acid and other carbon sources for enhanced efficiency
  • Available carbon source promotes an increase in beneficial soil microbe population
  • Compatible with fertilizer solutions of all pH’s as well as most plant protection products
  • Positive cost-to-benefit ratio and return on investment in all economic environments
  • High CEC components increase the efficiency of nutrient uptake in both soil and foliar applications
  • Great for all crops

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are fulvic acids?
A: Fulvic acids are humic substances with lower molecular weight and higher oxygen content. Humic substances consist of highly mineralized forms of organic matter with stable physical and chemical properties. Fulvic acids are short chains of molecules immediately available that last up to 30 days in the soil depending on weather conditions. This makes fulvic acid ideal for enhancing an in-furrow row starter. MicroCarb’s fulvic acid originates from vegetables and is a concentrated product with very high solubility.

Q: What is the importance of a carbon source in soil applications?
A: Organic carbon sources prolong micronutrient, phosphate and nitrogen efficiency, stimulate root growth, feed beneficial soil organisms, and increase soil organic matter.

Q: Can MicroCarb be used in conjunction with low-salt fertilizers?
A: Yes. MicroCarb has shown significant benefits when used with low-salt starters and foliars to enhance the efficiency and promote the uptake of nutrients. It allows for the full genetic expression of the seed’s potential. MicroCarb is also compatible with insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides, as well as acidic, neutral, and alkaline fertilizers. It is ideal for use in foliar and fertigation programs. As always, jar test for compatibility.

Q: What is fulvic acid derived from?
A: Fulvic acid is derived through an industrial extraction process from a soft brown coal known as leonardite. It offers the chemical equivalent of highly concentrated, fully broken down organic matter and greatly benefits the soil.

Q: What makes MicroCarb unique?
A: We have further enhanced the fulvic acids described above with a combination of more simple carbon chains to get nutrients, along with the fulvic acids, into the plant even faster. We have added EDTA chelated zinc and manganese, along with boron, to assist in meeting the micronutrient needs of your crop.

Q: Can MicroCarb be mixed with crop protection products?
A: Yes, MicroCarb is compatible with many crop protection products as a tank mix partner. The Andersons recommends a compatibility (jar) test before field mixing and application. Always read and follow all individual product labels before use. For more information, visit AndersonsPlantNutrient.com/TankMix.
