How it Works
Locked Up Phosphorus
ENHANCING YOUR PHOSPHORUS FERTILIZER
WHAT IS NUTRICHARGE®?
NutriCharge® is a unique patent-pending macromolecule that significantly increases single-season phosphorus availability and plant uptake when applied to phosphate fertilizer.
NutriCharge® keeps your phosphorus available by preventing it from locking up in your soil. NutriCharge® uses chemistry to overcome the charges in your soil that make your fertilizer unavailable to the crop.
THE PROBLEM NUTRICHARGE® ADDRESSES
The availability of applied phosphorus is limited, with only 20% being available in a single season. The remaining amount becomes fixed in the soil and is unavailable to plants, resulting in a loss of both money and potential yield for growers.
Phosphorus fertilizer is one of the least efficient inputs used on your farm today.
If you asked me the top five products that you would use in your program today, NutriCharge is going to be in there. We haven't had it fail yet.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
A study at NCSU demonstrated the ability of NutriCharge® to increase yields when applied to starter fertilizer consistently. It also showed the power of NutriCharge® to increase yields from reduced application rates.
During critical stages of growth, NutriCharge® keeps more phosphorus available in a form the plant can utilize. It is common to see higher phosphorus levels in tissue samples throughout the season.
NutriCharge® treatment to phosphorus fertilizer can cost as little as $2.30 per acre in starter fertilizer. NutriCharge® has been proven to increase yields at reduced application rates. This allows growers to reduce application rates of phosphorus, further improving profitability.
Because it has a low treatment rate, NutriCharge® takes up very little tank space. It is compatible with most fertilizers, micronutrients, and microbial solutions.
