The plant nutrition division of Compass Minerals has launched its water-soluble product portfolio, ProAcqua nutrients. A uniquely formulated line of highly soluble plant nutrition, ProAcqua products are made with high-quality ingredients and proven agro- nomic blends that complement the way growers manage their nutritional programs, the company says. ProAcqua nutrients provide a constant source of nutrients via fertiga- tion and seasonal foliar applications. Ability to dissolve, compatibility with most herbicides and crop protectants, and performance and value are what set this product line apart, according to Compass Minerals. Maximum solubility of the ProAcqua products addresses handling, storage and application challenges. The portfolio consists of three product families: foliar, fertigation and chelates. All 17 products are uniquely designed for their respective application methods to mitigate biotic and abiotic stress, and to improve crop growth, quality and yield. ProAcqua Nitro, Pulse and Restore are the cornerstones of the lineup to improve nitrogen-use efficiency, nitrogen fixation in legume crops, and abiotic stress mitigation for monocot crops.

The anvil lopper is lightweight for working above waist height, and has a long reach for pruning tall trees. The tool's lever ac- tion provides 50 percent more power for smoother cutting of big branches, and it has a blade that easily enters the wood.
