Why Alpha Agri and Agro-Liquid is your liquid fertilizer choice for wheat
What does a crop of winter wheat need?
A 120 bushel crop of wheat (straw removed)
needs about 225 lbs of nitrogen, 80 of phosphorus,180 of potassium, 30 of sulphur,
34 of Magnesium and a variety of micro-nutrients. Higher pH soils tie up many micro-nutrients like iron, copper, zinc, boron and manganese, adding these in a protected form in the fall at planting can help with tillering and winter survivability. Agro-Liquid’s polymer protected fertilizers are ideal for helping prevent bonding to soil clays and releasing to match plant nutritional uptake. Combined with Alpha Agri's fully tested, unique humic and fulvic acid blend, HumikaTM, your wheat crop will be set to meet its full potential!
What would Alpha Agri suggest for a
While all good fertility programs start with a
recent soil test, we would generally recommend a
liquid starter of 2-3 gallons of Pro-GerminatorTM,
a liter of Micro 500TM, 1/2 liter of HumikaTM and adding in selected micros to meet crop needs. In the spring, an application of liquid nitrogen
stabilized with soil and plant friendly HumikaTM,
2 gallons of accesSTM(sulphur) and 1/2 liter of
boron in either a single or split application will
provide what is required to bring yields to the next
level. To top it all off, consider a foliar application of Ferti-rainTM (specifically formulated as a
foliar feed product) along with crop protection
products to give your wheat a boost to maximize
Aren't all fertilizers basically the same?
No, just like all tractors are not the same.
Two things need to be seriously considered
when choosing a fertility program: salt index
and availability. Salt index is basically how
plant root friendly the fertilizer is. For
example, since ammonium thiosulphate has a
partial salt index of 7.5 while 28% has an index
of 2.25 (A&L Labs), care needs to be taken to
ensure some of these fertilizers aren't doing
more damage than good. It is also possible to
put the correct fertilizer in the correct place at
the right time, but it is of little value to the
crop! Many dry fertilizers need time, warm
soil and moisture to release nutrients, time your
wheat doesn't have. For example, elemental
sulphur needs all summer to release most of its
sulphur content which can work well for
alfalfa, but releases too late to benefit wheat.
All of Agro-Liquid’s products are very low
salt, pharmaceutical grade and polymer
protected to ensure maximum usage (85-90%)
by plants throughout the growing season.
Do our programs actually work?
Absolutely! Extensive, ongoing research is
carried out at Agro-Liquid’s 930 acre research
farm in central Michigan and at independent
growers throughout Canada and the US. Alpha
Agri’s HumikaTM is CFIA registered and many
independent trials have repeatedly proved its
