Starter Fertilizer Benefits

  • Starts Seeds in Cold Soils – Applying a PureGrade Starter Fertilizer provides an immediate supply of N-P-K to overcome slow growth and stunting caused by cold soils, harsh weather and poor soil conditions.
  • Reduces Nutrient Stratification – Banding PureGrade Starter Fertilizer during planting puts nutrients under the soil surface in a concentrated band, promoting deeper and healthier root systems.
  • Reduces Weed Pressure – PureGrade Starter Fertilizer in a subsurface band fertilizes the crop — not the weeds. A Nutra-Flo starter fertilizer promotes even emergence and faster, earlier growth to rapidly form a canopy that shades weeds and slows their growth.
  • Increases Fertilizer Efficiency – Applying a PureGrade Starter Fertilizer at planting time is the most efficient way to fertilize high-yield crops: fertilizer tie-up is reduced, nutrients are more positionally available, and denitrification is minimized.
  • Produces Drier Crops – PureGrade Starter Fertilizer stimulates quick advancement through the growth stages producing faster maturing and drier crops at harvest. University research indicates corn fertilized with a liquid starter can be one to two points drier.
  • Increases Yields – Using a PureGrade Starter Fertilizer is the most efficient way to fertilize crops. In a University of Nebraska test, applying liquid starter on corn generated 24 bushels more per acre than broadcast.
