Driving VERTICAL Root Growth
Phosphorus has the largest impact on fall tiller counts, root development, and nearly all energy-requiring processes in the plant.
By layering phosphorus, we can encourage VERTICAL root growth that is critical for access to soil moisture in dryland farming. However, phosphorus quickly ties up in the soil and may no longer be plant-available by the time the roots reach it - leading the roots to divert and begin growing more horizontally.
Improved phosphorus use efficiency + deeper root growth = MORE FALL TILLERS
M-Struct keeps applied phosphorus more plant-available longer by providing a source for phosphorus to bind to while still remaining plant-available. (Click here to learn more about the power of M-Struct)
With an average 6-8% yield increase, the results speak for themselves.
