Understanding chelates in agriculture is key to optimal crop production and maximizing return on investment. We’ve covered the science behind chelating agents, but in this excerpt from the LIFT Summit, Steve Roehl from West Central Distribution discusses why an ortho-ortho EDDHA chelate is the best option for nutrient uptake.
West Central Distribution announced the launch of a new version of its proprietary ortho-ortho EDDHA chelating agent Levesol™. The new product, Levesol DFC will be available for the 2016 planting season and has been proven to improve phosphorus and micronutrient efficiency, like the original Levesol.
With this year’s lower commodity prices and variable weather conditions, getting the best return on their investment is top of mind for both growers and their agronomists. Maximizing nutrient availability to increase nutrient efficiency is a method that many growers and agronomists are relying on to achieve maximum yields.
Observing root mass and stalk diameter can help determine the crop’s overall health. The crop’s health is a result of it’s ability to absorb micro and macronutrients that are essential for growth.
Discover how chelating agents increase the availability of micronutrients, which improves plant health and leads to more successful yields.
Rate this post You might know that the power of many fertilizers is related to chelation, but when was the last time you really thought about what chelates do? Here’s a quick overview of chelates and how they can help plants maximize nutrient efficiency: Chelating agents affect the bonds between ions and molecules. In nature—i.e., […]
