Starter Fertilizers

January 3, 2014 06:49 PM

CHS Inc., a farmer-owned cooperative and global energy, grains and foods business, announces two new liquid starter fertilizers for 2014: CHS Aventine Complete, available through CHS Service Centers, and XLR-rate, available nationwide through CHS cooperatives and crop input retailers. 

XLR-rate liquid starter fertilizer is a high-orthophosphate formulation designed to deliver early green-up in colder, wet soils; promote root development for a better stand and strengthen the crop during preproductive growth stages to overcome disease and adverse growing conditions.

CHS Aventine Complete contains a broad range of nutrients and unique chelation technology to prevent micronutrients such as iron, copper, zinc and manganese from binding in the soil, which can help improve seedling health.

Both XLR-rate and CHS Aventine Complete can be used as a soil or foliar application. Company officials say the low-salt formulations make both products safe for seed and plants.
