When it comes to choosing micronutrients, there is no shortage of suppliers. There are many versions of a 9% chelated zinc, 6% chelated manganese, etc. However, we have seen many nutrients applied to corn and soybeans with no response in tissue test values or yield. We have also seen cheaper nutrients out-perform more expensive nutrients, and vice versa.
Our advice is once again to VERIFY that your nutrients are getting into the plant and going towards yield. Price is one factor, but spending more doesn't always correlate with the value, and saving a couple dollars ultimately can lose you a lot of money if the competitors product didn't do its job.
In our opinion, consistency and proven effectiveness are vital in choosing the right product from the right manufacturer.
This is why we have developed our Bio-Stim line of micronutrients. We compared 7 different biologicals and bio-stimulants with each individual nutrient on both corn and soybeans. Ultimately, we found that some biologicals helped particular nutrients more than others. Our product line is preblended with the RIGHT biological(s) to help the foliar absorption of every individual nutrient.
If the fertilizer can't get into the plant, it doesn't do us any good. We have ensured that our micronutrient line will provide maximum efficiency and results!
