Targeted Micronutrients

Shooting clay targets? You know when you see the powder, it’s a winning shot. Your crop nutrients work the same way. You will have a better chance of winning in the field if your nutrients are evenly dispersed in the root zone. Microsync® Granular Micronutrients with proprietary Nutripaction® technology creates the “powder” of nutrients readily available for crop uptake. Not only will the nutrients go where they need to be, but you will get the yield targets you need as well.

Providing balanced and effective plant nutrition is crucial for unleashing additional yield potential. Micronutrients are an often overlooked part of plant nutrition, but they have a big impact on crop growth and yield. As of late, there has been increased focus on micronutrients; the amount needed by a crop to target a particular yield and the physiological disorders impacting plant growth, development and productivity due to deficiencies of particular micronutrients. Row and specialty crops often don’t have the zinc, manganese or boron they need for optimal performance. MicroSync Granular Micronutrient Fertilizers aim to deliver the required amounts of micronutrients in a targeted fashion and to provide them with season-long availability. MicroSync boosts soil fertility programs by providing a superior balance of nutrients precisely formulated to prevent or correct micronutrient deficiencies.

Top 4 Reasons to Focus on Micronutrients:
  1. Larger amounts of nutrients, including micronutrients, are needed to achieve the higher crop yields that growers are seeking today.
  2. Micronutrient depletion in the soil after long-time cropping requires replenishment.
  3. Better information has become available on nutrient availability, interaction, and crop response.
  4. Variability of nutrient requirements and the technology to manage that variability continues to develop.
As you can see, it's important to focus on the adequacy of micronutrients in crop production. Although used in smaller quantities than other essential nutrients, they are just as important for proper plant nutrition and development. MicroSync® Granular Micronutrient Fertilizers are formulated for use in broad acre & specialty crops and designed to be blended with NPK granular fertilizer programs. 

Ease of Use
  • MicroSync is easy to handle, blend and spread and has an ideal particle size and bulk density that is similar to MAP or DAP.
  • These all-in-one granules are designed to be blended with NPK granular fertilizer programs, making them easy to apply.
Precise Dispersion
  • Uniformly blended combinations are compressed together to produce granules consistent in particle size and with superior particle spread.
  • Produces a homogeneous, low-dust, uniformly sized granular micronutrient product that disperses on contact with soil moisture or rainfall.
  • Once the MicroSync granules are exposed to moisture in the soil, they begin to break down into finely divided particles for maximum soil contact and optimal root zone interception.
Season-Long Availability
  • Uses several unique modes of action for the release and availability of desired nutrients.
  • Formulated with micronutrients for short, intermediate and long-term release characteristics.
  • The total uptake of micronutrients by corn and soybeans, for example, range from a few pounds to a fraction of a pound per acre. As growers and retailers continue to seek higher and more consistent yields, micronutrients are becoming an integral part of the solution.
  • Utilizes Exchange Resin technology which protects the delivered micronutrients, aids in keeping them available, and allows for use rates that are more aligned with crop removal values.
