Why do I need Micronutrients? watch
Balance is critical in plant nutrition. An excess of one nutrient can cause reduced uptake of another. An excess of potassium, for example, may compete with desirable levels of magnesium uptake. In fields with marginal or low zinc levels, a heavy application of phosphorus may induce a zinc deficiency in soil. Excess iron may cause a manganese deficiency, so the proper ratio of manganese to iron must be maintained. The proper balance of micronutrients in the soil is an often overlooked management objective. Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizer's Secondary Element and Micronutrient products can be economically added to your planter-time fertilizer program to prevent yield robbing deficiencies. Accurate soil testing is a great preventative tool. But, if in season deficiencies are discovered our micros can also effectively be foliar applied . Justus von Liebig propounded the “Law of the Minimum”. It states that if one of the nutritive elements is deficient or lacking, plant growth will be poor even when all other elements are abundant. A crop will only produce to the potential of the least usable nutrient.
...maybe Manganese, Copper, Sulfur, or Iron.
..don’t forget Potassium.
Not a problem; the specialists at Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers can fill your prescription.
It’s called Responsible Nutrient Management!

Sulfur is one of the components of some amino acids, protein, and co-enzyme A (co-enzyme A plays a crucial role in enzyme catalyzed reactions within the plant); when absent, marked losses in production will result. Our Sulfur products, accesS, S-Calate, and eNhance are excellent sources of readily available Sulfate able to effectively enter the plant and prevent, or quickly correct, deficiencies as they are noted. Agro-Culture LIQUID Fertilizers understands the importance of sulfur and includes it in many products.
The Sulfur and Calcium in S-CaLate™ make it a great fit for many high-value crops where there is a need for both nutrients. S-CaLate™ may aid in improving nutrient efficiency in low pH environments. LABEL MSDS Usage Guide

LIQUID's Secondary Nutrient Products
Our Magnesium product is intended for the prevention and timely correcting of magnesium deficiency symptoms. It is primarily useful in crops where the carbohydrate part of the plant is being harvested. Magnesium should have a testable relationship with Calcium in the soil of between 1 to 5 and 1 to 10. When this range does not exist, foliar applications of Magnesium may prevent yield limiting deficiencies. Magnesium is the central element in chlorophyll development and activates many enzymes and enzymatic processes.
Individual Micro Nutrients available from Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers
Our Boron formulation helps encourage healthy fruiting, carbohydrate and water metabolism, protein synthesis and seed development. It is highly effective in addressing in-season boron deficiencies when discovered before irreversible crop damage caused by boron deficiency occurs.
Copper is contained in several important enzymes and is involved in photosynthesis and chlorophyll formation. Copper is often neglected as a nutrition input. Our Copper helps prevent or correct deficiencies of copper. These deficiencies usually manifest a light green shade before becoming chlorotic, curling, and dying back.
Iron aids in the formation of chlorophyll, acts as an oxygen carrier and helps contribute to the development of certain respiratory enzyme systems. Our Iron can be applied where know deficiencies exist or to correct early deficiency symptoms.
Manganese plays a direct role in photosynthesis by aiding chlorophyll development. Manganese accelerates germination and maturity by increasing the availability of phosphorus and calcium. microLink Manganese has been very effective in correcting the yield robbing deficiencies often found in soybeans. No antagonism or minimized effectiveness has been noted when combined with Glyphosate products
Timing, Rate and crop maturity are all critical to effective foliar application.
Zinc improves plant growth and stimulates the enzyme system. It is important in producing chlorophyll and developing carbohydrates. Zinc is critical to high yield crop production.Our Zinc effectively addresses deficiencies discovered through soil testing and also efficiently provides usable zinc to the growing crop during critical stages of the growing season or when deficiencies are discovered.
Molybdenum aids plants in the utilization of nitrogen. Our product has proven beneficial in many cropping environments.
