All nutrients, including micronutrients, need to be maintained at optimum levels throughout the crop life cycle to maximize yield. Even though only small amounts are needed, micronutrients are key in many physiological processes in the plant including enzyme production, cell wall structure, and metabolic pathways such as photosynthesis, flowering, seed development and root growth. Shortages of any of the micronutrients (boron, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum and zinc) can have a dramatic impact on yields.
For a balanced starter fertilizer program, the crop-specific micronutrient package in the MaxxGro product line is an excellent addition because MaxxGro supplies the precise level and ratio of micronutrients needed for the specific crop based on crop uptake and efficiency factors. MaxxGro crop-specific products are available for corn, soybeans, cotton, peanuts and wheat.
Fully-chelated, MaxxGro provides mixing compatibility in any application. MaxxGro products contain penetrants and translocation aids to maximize uptake. MaxxGro’s humectants and growth enhancement compounds boost nutrient efficiency and provide natural bio-stimulant materials that help plants overcome stressed (wet) environments.
