Cold, wet, heavy soils and short planting windows can limit yield potential for even the most superior seed germplasm. Starter fertilizers and biologicals can help minimize these issues for a powerful start to the growing season. It’s a difference that’s noticeable from emergence with uniform stands, vibrant plants and stronger overall growth.
PCT | Sunrise® offers a variety of StandUp® starter fertilizers and BioBuild™ biologicals for a custom approach to crop health. Soils low in potassium (K) and phosphorus (P) benefit from premium corn starters with the added kick of P and K to fuel seedling growth. Pairing these fertilizers with products like BioComplete and C-Green ensure vigorous root development and stress tolerance to withstand cool, wet weather and aid in penetrating compacted soils.
Fertizol™ is another product that gives agronomic crops an edge. It’s a powerful chelating agent that encapsulates existing soil nutrients and makes them available for uptake. This is a great option for growers who already have soils rich in P or who plan to reduce future applications as part of their 4R Nutrient Stewardship program.
The best application method depends on the customer’s planter capabilities and farm business goals. Local PCT sales agronomists work with growers to build custom crop nutrient plans based on each unique situation.
PCT | Sunrise® also offers peace of mind through a replant program, which guarantees 100 percent product replacement when a qualifying weather event occurs. To be eligible for this program farmers must purchase select starters to be applied in-furrow and make arrangements to purchase by January 28, 2019.
Now’s the time to give your 2019 crop a powerful start with improved plant health and high yield potential. Talk with a local PCT expert to get started.
