Louisville, KY (PRWEB) April 08, 2015
Monty’s Plant & Soil Products has announced the release of K28 Liquid Potash, designed to address potassium deficiencies in crops and assist growers in getting the highest yields possible. Monty’s nearly pH balanced formula can be applied 2x2 at planting and safely added to nitrogen solutions as well as most herbicides and fungicides for foliar application.
“Potassium deficiencies such as yellowing wilting of leaves are common in crops during the early stages of growth,” said Dennis Stephens, Monty’s President. “With K28, we are able to offer growers a product that helps with the regulation and uptake of water within plants, as well as the activation of growth related enzymes in plants.”
While potash deficiencies might cause lower yields in all plants, the look of malnutrition depends on the crop. For example, corn will wilt or yellow while soybeans will become yellow or simply have slow growth. Regardless of the crop, however, conditions including compacted, sandy or wet soil are likely to see potash deficiencies as well.
“High yielding crop producers do not wait to witness these potash deficiencies in their crop,” said Dennis Stephens, President of Monty’s Plant Food. “They use the Monty’s K28 as a proactive approach to maintaining the highest yields from start to finish.”
Monty’s K28 is available from Monty’s dealers around the country. K28 is available in 2.5, 30 and 275 gallon quantities.
