WINNIPEG, Manitoba-Wolf Trax has added magnesium to its innovative DDP Nutrient portfolio. Designed to address magnesium deficiencies in soils and crops, new Magnesium DDP is available to farmers in the U.S. and Canada for the 2013 growing season.
Magnesium is important in chlorophyll production and plays a key role in moving sugars from the leaves into the plant. Deficiency is a growing problem in highly productive soils, and the only fertilizer options that most farmers and agricultural retailers have had were somewhat inefficient. Challenges with granular magnesium products include tie-up in the soil, poor blending capability and sparse distribution throughout a field.
Magnesium DDP also features the unique DUAL ACTION Formulation, providing immediate availability for plant uptake, along with extended feeding over time. The immediate availability of Magnesium DDP will be an especially important characteristic to solving deficiency challenges and an advantage over granular products.
