Growers constantly face the challenge of making sure their crops receive the right nutrients throughout the entire growing season. Unfortunately, micronutrients in the soil can bond with negatively charged components like phosphorus and get tied up in the soil, never reaching the plants.
That’s where Levesol DFC comes in. Levesol DFC is a great solution for growers who want to maximize nutrient efficiency. It was developed by West Central as an extension of the original Levesol to be used as a dry fertilizer compatible version to help growers maximize the potential of phosphorus and micronutrients in their soil and in their fertilizer all season long.
Check out the following four benefits for using Levesol DFC with your dry fertilizer.
1. It has unmatched stability in the soil and among varying environmental conditions.
Levesol DFC is incredibly stable. The pure ortho-ortho EDDHA chelating agent in Levesol DFC can withstand varying soil and environmental conditions. That is why Levesol DFC is actually strong enough to move micronutrients through the plant during early development.
2. And its use rate is very reasonable.
Levesol DFC is potent, requiring a recommended, easy to handle use rate of 3 qts/ton of phosphate fertilizer.
3. It is a team player; works well with other inputs and machinery.
When proper mixing and handling instructions are followed, Levesol DFC will not affect how you handle dry fertilizer. It stays flowable during impregnation and application, and doesn’t stick to your equipment. Even cool weather doesn’t change how it works.
4. It improves nutrient availability of P, Zn, Fe, Cu and Mn.
Levesol DFC is designed for use with phosphate fertilizers. Levesol DFC is a chelating agent that forms a protective bond with micronutrients in the fertilizer or in the soil and prevents them from forming insoluble bonds with phosphorus, allowing for easier uptake of phosphorus and other essential micronutrients such as zinc (Zn), iron (Fe), copper (Cu) and manganese (Mn) into the plant to ensure the plant has the appropriate levels of nutrients throughout its growth.
