ALPINE K19-S® brand liquid fertilizer is designed to be blended with various other fertilizers to provide important nutrients needed to grow high-yielding crops. It can be mixed with UAN solutions and liquid urea solutions to provide two very critical elements – potassium and sulfur; typically missing from these base fertilizer products. ALPINE K19-S® can be blended with UAN solutions to create a strip-till/sidedress fertilizer that provides extra potassium, and sulfur at a time when uptake of these nutrients is rapidly increasing.
Bio-K® is a new and improved potassium fertilizer technology that is unique to ALPINE. Features include increased foliar and root absorption, low salt index and increased energy production, which ultimately leads to increased crop yields and productivity.
Potassium: Potassium teams with nitrogen and sulfur to produce a protein essential for proper plant growth. The addition of potassium to your crop nutrition program provides the following:
• helps increase drought resistance
• helps develop stronger stalks and stems
• maintains a healthy plant metabolism
• assists in photosynthesis
• helps translocation within the plant
• increases protein and starch levels within the plant
• aids in fighting diseases
Sulfur is an essential nutrient for corn production, often ranked behind only nitrogen, phosphate, and potassium. Sulfur is critical in a young corn plant, deficient amounts at this growth stage
and you begin to lose yield. Sulfur is needed to metabolize nitrogen making it available to the plant. The need for sulfur is closely related to the amounts of nitrogen available to the crop. Sulfur activates the enzyme nitrate reductase, which converts nitrates to amino acids within the corn plant.
*ALPINE always recommends doing a jar test to check for fertilizer compatibility when mixing with ALPINE K19-S.
NOTE: These recommendations are believed to be reliable and should be followed carefully. Failure to follow label directions or improper application practices all of which are out of the control of the manufacturer or seller can result in crop damage. Use caution when applying fertilizer directly to the seed as injury may occur.
For more specific guidelines, consult with your authorized ALPINE Dealer or ALPINE District Sales Manager for fertility recommendations.
