Why Alpha Agri and Agro-Liquid is your liquid fertilizer choice for soybeans
What does a crop of soybeans actually
According to A&L Labs, a 60 bushel soybean
crop needs about 58 units (44 removed) of
phosphorus, 132 units of Potash, 21 units (11
removed) of sulphur, 57 (9 removed) of calcium,
30 (9 removed) of magnesium and five other
micronutrients. While most of these are in ade-
quate supply in the soil, they are frequently tied to
soil clay particles. As the soil pH rises to 7 and
higher (many local farms are in the 7.5 range),
micro-nutrients are tied to the soil clay and roots
will have difficulty accessing these micros, thus
limiting yield potential. Agro-Liquid’s micros are
flavonol polymer protected. As the carbon based
polymers break down, roots draw in the micros
before they can bond to soil clay particles.
Combined with Alpha Agri's fully tested, unique
humic and fulvic acid blend, HumikaTM, your
soybean crop will be set to meet its full potential.
What should be included in a soybean
Research generally suggests that soybeans need a
good base soil fertility in place before they are
planted. While adding a dry starter normally will
not economically increase yields, Alpha Agri has
seen a positive yield response by adding
Pro-GerminatorTM or Sure-KTM along with
accesSTM, Micro 500TM and boron to help get
those young plants off to a strong start.
Aren't all fertilizers basically the same?
No, while many fertilizers seem very similar,
there are actually some significant differences.
Salt index varies considerably from one source toanother, from very low to toxic. As anexample, ammonium thiosulfate (12N, 26S)has a partial salt index (salt level compared toactual nutrients) of 7.53, while ammonium
sulfate (21N, 24S) has a salt index of 3.25.
Agro-Liquid’s products have salt indexes
which are typically 1/2 that of other liquid fertilizers.
What does that mean for your crops?
Agro-Liquid products are safer to use in the
root zone and less corrosive for your
equipment! Also, Agro-Liquid products are all
pharmaceutical grade; they are not by-products
What would Alpha Agri recommend for
your soybean crop?
While all fertility programs should start with a
soil test, we would generally suggest 1.5
gallons of Pro-GerminatorTM, 1 gallon of
accesSTM sulphur, 1 liter of Micro 500TM, 1/2
liter of HumikaTM and 1/2 liter each of copper
and boron as a starter. Once the plants are out
of the ground and growing well, a foliar
feeding of Ferti-RainTM (early season) or
Sure-KTM (mid-season) will give a needed
boost to realize maximum yield potential.
Do Agro-Liquid products actually work?
Absolutely! Extensive research is carried out
on all of Agro-Liquid’s products at their 930
acre research farm in Michigan before being
offered to producers. Join the thousands of
other producers enjoying the benefits of Agro-
Liquid fertilizers. Alpha Agri’s HumikaTM is
CFIA registered and many independent trials
have repeatedly proved its benefits.
