Building Sustainable (and Profitable) Cropping Systems
Posted on February 13, 2017
Growers are more interested than ever in producing sustainable and profitable cropping systems.
Environmental stewardship, economic efficiency, and soil health are some of the leading factors of this drive. At The Andersons, it is our goal to provide efficient and high-quality products to assist growers in this quest.
The Andersons' vast portfolio of specialty products are designed to feed, stimulate, and enhance this year’s crop. The goal of these products is to mitigate your risk, enhance your profit potential, and protect your investment.
The PureGrade® low-salt starter line has varying grades and analyses of liquid starter products to accommodate different fertility and investment needs. The PureGrade foliar products supplement in-season nutrient needs to help maintain nutrient balance and plant health.
MicroSolutions® micronutrients are a critical component of any fertility program. Essential crop functions are dependent on complex interactions between NPK and micronutrients.
Select Nutrients from The Andersons provide specific nutrients for individualized needs. This group of products provides several benefits including high-quality formulations, easy handling, and improved crop health.
Enhanced Efficiency Products
Enhanced Efficiency Products from The Andersons provide solutions to reduce risk and protect nutrient investments. These innovative products allow growers to achieve maximum yields with a proven return on investment.
Soil Amendments such as NutraLime® DG pelletized limestone help to correct soil pH, which drives soil chemistry and nutrient availability. Gypsum products like NutraSoft® DG pelletized gypsum improve the physical structure of the soil by affecting soil aggregates allowing for adequate pore space to increase aeration and water infiltration leading to better root and plant development.
UltraMate® LQ, K-Mate SG™, Humic DG™, and Black Gypsum DG® are humate-based products that deliver organic acids to increase cation exchange capacity (CEC), increase plant nutrient uptake, and drive soil biology.
