Previous posts have discussed the key advantages of ortho-ortho EDDHA chelate products and introduced the latest innovation in this area—Levesol. Now, we’ll look at exactly how to use Levesol to enhance and maximize nutrient efficiency.
Levesol is the only pure chelating agent that can be mixed directly with liquid fertilizer and applied in-furrow. Its liquid formulation makes it easy to mix with other liquid fertilizers, and it doesn’t interfere with crop protection chemicals or other tank mix partners in your in-furrow application.
Levesol’s potency provides for an easy-to-handle use rate 64 oz/Ac. Plus, it’s incredibly stable, and can withstand varying soil and environmental conditions.
In-furrow application placement is one of the keys to Levesol’s effectiveness, because it helps plants use nutrients more efficiently during their very early development.
The purpose of a starter fertilizer is to make nutrients more available and easily accessible to developing seedlings to facilitate a strong start during a relatively stressful time for the plant. With Levesol, growers can make sure that corn, sugarbeets, soybeans, dry beans, sunflowers, wheat, barley and sorghum can efficiently access the nutrients in the soil and in the fertilizer tank mix, and can begin their growth process with the best possible start.
