Why Alpha Agri and Agro-Liquid is your liquid fertilizer choice for corn
Is your corn actually using what you are
All of Agro-Liquid’s fertilizer products are flavonol polymer protected to ensure maximum usability for the plants while minimizing leaching loss and providing a consistent release to the plant throughout the growing season. As much as 85-90% of the nutrients provided can be utilized com-pared to our competition's liquid fertilizer at 35-40% and dry fertilizer at 15-20%.
What does a corn crop actually need?
According to A&L Labs, a 200 bushel corn crop
removes 224 units of nitrogen, 70 of phosphorus,
50 of potassium, 30 of sulphur, 7 of Magnesium,
and 6 other micronutrients. While many of these
are in adequate supply in the soil, most are bonded
to soil clay particles. As the soil pH rises to
around 7 or higher (as is with most local farms),
many of these micro-nutrients adhere to the clay
and are rendered unavailable. With Agro-Liquid’s
flavonol polymer protection, nutrients are prevent-ed from bonding to soil clay. As the carbon based
polymers break down, roots access the nutrients
before they are tied up. Combined with Alpha
Agri’s fully tested, unique humic and fulvic acid
blend, HumikaTM, your corn crop will be set to
meet its full potential.
Are 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 to
another, from very low to toxic. As an example,
ammonium thiosulfate (12N, 26S) has a partial
salt index (salt level compared to actual nutrients)
of 7.53, while ammonium sulfate (21N, 24S) has asalt index of 3.25. Agro-Liquid’s products have
salt indexes which are typically 1/2 that of other
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 pharmaceu-
tical grade; they are not by-products of manu-
What would a typical corn program look
All recommendations should start with a soil
test. At Alpha Agri, we believe in applying
only what is needed, so our rates may seem
low. Starter needs are often 2-3 gallons of
Pro-Germinator TM (9-24-3), one liter of
Micro500TM (a blend of zinc, manganese,
iron, cop-per and boron), 1/2 liter of HumikaTM
along with an additional 1/2 liter of boron.
Throughout the season, our stabilized nitrogen has a 90
day N release, often resulting in a 30%
reduction in N requirement compared to other N
sources. We also carry products specifically
designed to be foliar fed to growing crops
while applying other crop protections products,
an excellent way to boost yields.
Do Agro-Liquid products actually work?
Most certainly, all of Agro-Liquids fertilizers
are extensively tested at their 930 acre test
farm before being offered for sale. Many inde-
pendent producers also conduct trials to con-
firm the same results on their own operations.
Alpha Agri’s HumikaTM is CFIA registered and
independent trials have repeatedly proved its
