Patented Manufacturing Process Delivers the Right Ratio of Nutrients at the Right Time

MicroEssentials(Plymouth, Minn. — September 17, 2007 (AgNewsWire) — A unique three-in-one crop nutrient designed to make every single plant perform better is now available from The Mosaic Company.

Called MicroEssentials(TM), the new product uses a patented manufacturing process to combine the correct ratios of different vital nutrients into uniform granules, with each granule formed much like the partial layers on an onion’s skin. Every MicroEssentials granule contains three critical nutrients — nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur — in a proper ratio, giving every single plant a better shot at getting essential nutrients it needs to produce the best results.

“MicroEssentials works better than other fertilizers for several reasons. First, the granules are formed in a way that allows plants to absorb them more easily. They also contain two types of sulfur, the sulfate form which is available immediately to the plants, and the elemental form which becomes available later in the growing season. The new technology allows the nutrients to be spread more uniformly, ensuring that each and every plant gets the nutrients it needs. MicroEssentials is a versatile product that works well as a starter, a direct application fertilizer or bulk blend ingredient,” says Mosaic U.S. Agronomy Manager, Dr. Dan Froehlich.
