POCATELLO, Idaho-The J.R. Simplot Company has begun producing a new line of high-quality NPK liquid crop nutrient products.
The new products, which have varying levels of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, are designed for a wide array of applications, including foliar, banding, drip irrigation and in-furrow. Because the products are neutral solutions, each with a very low salt index, they can be safely placed on or next to seeds at recommended label rates, thereby allowing more efficient access to nutrients during germination.
Simplot is currently producing the new products in limited quantities at its Pocatello, Idaho, fertilizer manufacturing facility.
As a basic producer of both purified phosphoric acid and super phosphoric acid at the facility, the company's new initiative is a natural fit to meet the increasing demands for efficient nutrient placement, according to John Malinowski, vice president, business development and marketing.
