A properly crafted fertility program leads to the success of your crop today, tomorrow, and in the future. Including PureGrade® liquid fertilizer in your program will ensure your crop has the nutrients needed to reach its full potential. PureGrade low-salt starters are the best choice for maximizing yield potential due to numerous benefits.
- STARTS SEEDS IN COLD SOILS
Applying a PureGrade low-salt starter during planting provides an immediate supply of NPK to overcome slow growth and stunting caused by cold soils, harsh weather, and poor soil conditions.
- INCREASES FERTILIZER EFFICIENCY
Applying a PureGrade low-salt starter at planting is the most efficient way to fertilize high-yield crops. This timing reduces fertilizer tie-up, increases nutrient availability, and minimizes denitrification.
- PRODUCES DRIER GRAIN
PureGrade liquid fertilizers stimulate quick advancement through the growth stages, producing drier grain at harvest.
- INCREASES YIELDS
Using a PureGrade low-salt starter is the most efficient way to fertilize crops. In a university test, applying liquid starter on corn generated 24 more bushels per acre than a traditional broadcast application.
