DELIVERING ON GENETIC POTENTIAL
The seed specialists at River Valley Cooperative know what works best locally, and they can turn to a broad line of superior seed products and technologies for the best choice on your farm.
In addition to sources of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium, we carry a wide range of specialty products and micronutrients, including:
MicroSync ProZinc is typically one of the most deficient micronutrients in corn. Because it is immobile in soil and tissue, it’s critical that plants have a constant supply throughout the season. MicroSync Pro provides zinc along with manganese and boron, utilizing Verdesian’s Polymer technology to ensure efficient micronutrient uptake by the plant. It also keeps nutrients available to the plant all season long.
SulfurEssential for both corn and soybeans, sulfur is increasingly deficient in soils. We apply sulfur in three applications to maximize yield. First, we apply MicroEssentials S10 (12-40-0-10S), typically in the fall, with dry P and K. Next is ATS ammonium thiosulfate ((12-0-0-26S), typically as a pre-plant application or side dress application. The final application is Take OFF, a foliar nutrition/biostimulant, applied with the post-herbicide or fungicide pass.
BiopathThis microbial inoculant from Mosaic improves nutrient utilization and conditions for root growth and plant vigor, helping growers maximize ROI from production inputs. It is formulated to be blended with liquid fertilizer or tank-mixed and applied in-furrow, side-dress, or broadcast.
