- About Us
By: Alpine East
We all know the value of adding fertilizer to a field crop. But with increasing demand from government and the end user, we have to change the way we think about our traditional methods of application.
The days of broadcasting dry fertilizer over the ground are no longer going to satisfy the demands placed upon the agricultural industry. Instead, we have to make a paradigm shift towards alternative methods. In other words, we have to totally change conventional thinking. Adding a foliar fertilizer program to your operation is both economical and environmentally sound. Timing of a foliar application is much more critical than a broadcast application; a CCA or your local agronomist can help you determine the correct timing. There is also many benefits to the growing crop when using a foliar fertilizer. We can literally feed the plant the nutrients it needs when it needs it. The stresses of both wet and dry years can be lessened, decreasing the chances of a yield drag due to environmental stress. And most important of all the added benefits is the large potential for increased yield and crop quality. Don’t be mystified by new foliar technology, make the paradigm shift and start maximizing your profits!
