CHS Inc., this week announced it is introducing two new liquid starter fertilizers: CHS Aventine Complete, available through CHS Service Centers, and XLR-rate, available nationwide through CHS cooperatives and crop input retailers.
"XLR-rate liquid starter fertilizer is a high orthophosphate formulation that delivers early green-up in colder, wet soils; promotes root development for a better stand and strengthens the crop during pre-productive growth stages to overcome disease and adverse growing conditions," said Michael Johnson, crop nutrients marketing director for CHS.
Mark Biedenfeld, business development manager for CHS, said CHS Aventine Complete contains a broad range of nutrients and chelation technology that prevents micronutrients like iron, copper, zinc and manganese from binding in the soil. Biedenfeld said the ingredients improve seedling health.
Both XLR-rate and CHS Aventine Complete can be used as a soil or foliar application.
