Winnipeg, Manitoba-Wolf Trax has added magnesium to its innovative DDP Nutrient portfolio.
Designed to address magnesium deficiencies in soils and crops, new Magnesium DDP is available to farmers in the U.S. and Canada for the 2013 growing season. Magnesium is important in chlorophyll production and plays a key role in moving sugars from the leaves into the plant.
Deficiency is a growing problem in highly productive soils, and the only fertilizer options that most farmers and agricultural retailers have had were somewhat inefficient.
Challenges with granular magnesium products include tie-up in the soil, poor blending capability and sparse distribution throughout a field.
Wolf Trax applied its patented, scientifically-engineered DDP technology in developing Magnesium DDP. Formulated as a dry dispersible powder, Magnesium DDP will coat dry fertilizer for higher quality blends, better field coverage and easier access for plant roots.
