Today, farmers are recognizing that crops need additional sulfur. There are two main reasons for this heightened need - increased crop yields require sulfur at higher rates and cleaner air standards have significantly reduced sulfur in rainfall. To help farmers address this important need, The Mosaic Company developed MicroEssentials®, the next generation of fertilizer.
Early in the growing season, MicroEssentials’ sulfate sulfur provides young plants the balanced crop nutrition needed for optimum growth. However, plants dependent on fertilizer containing sulfate sulfur alone are vulnerable to the yield-robbing impact of leaching. MicroEssentials solves this problem by delivering season long availability through its uniquely formulated combination of both sulfate and elemental sulfur. The elemental sulfur in MicroEssentials is converted by microbes into the form available to plants, thereby providing a steady supply of sulfate sulfur throughout the growing season. MicroEssentials proven formula delivers vital nutrients in a ratio best suited to the health and productivity of each and every plant, resulting in higher yields and higher profitability.
