SENSIBLE Foltec SG is innovative and is designed to be diff erent than the standard liquid foliar fertility products in many sensible ways. N-P-K Foltec SG is formulated in some of the most widely used agronomic N-P-K ratios: High N (24-0-8), High P (8-24-8), High K (8-0-24), and High N and K (16-0-16). These formulas can be easily combined to create your preferred N-P-K ratio. MICRONUTRIENTS Foltec SG utilizes chelated micronutrients in a proven ratio that maximizes availability, effi cacy and performance. ULTRAMATE® SG UltraMate SG is The Andersons' exclusive formulation of soluble sulfonated potassium humate which provides an oxidized source of carbon. UltraMate SG contains a combination of fulvic and humic acids which allow plants to utilize applied nutrients more eff ectively and effi ciently. UltraMate SG also provides a wide range of soil benefi ts, including chelation of nutrients and increased uptake of soil N and P. SEA PLANT EXTRACT Foltec SG contains sea plant extracts derived from the most biologically active sea plant species in the world. They contain a complex array of organic and mineral compounds which include cytokinins, vitamins, sugars, enzymes and proteins that combine together to promote improved wear and drought tolerance. Foltec SG utilizes the proven 3:1 ratio of humic acid to sea plant extract for maximum plant health benefi ts based on research conducted at Virginia Tech University. 1 1 Zhang, Xunzhong, and E. H. Ervin. "Cytokinin-Containing Seaweed and Humic Acid Extracts Associated with Creeping Bentgrass Leaf Cytokinins and Drought Resistance." Crop Science 44.5 (2004). Foltec SG is packaged in a resealable foil-lined bag with an easy-open tear strip to save time and eff ort during mixing and loading. There are no plastic jugs to triple rinse and recycle. Foltec SG is packaged based on application rate and coverage. A single 13.6 lb. bag will cover 1 acre at the typical application rate. A case contains 3 x 13.6 lb. bags which will cover 3 acres. Please reference the coverage table on the next page for more detail. Because Foltec SG utilizes dry soluble granules, it will not freeze or require heated storage and special handling requirements like liquid formulations do. Foltec SG can be shipped at any time of the year under all weather conditions. Foltec SG is a combination of N-P-K, micronutrients, UltraMate SG and sea plant extract which provides complete nutrition and reduces the need to create a complex tank mix using a variety of products. The cost in use of Foltec SG (for a typical two week interval foliar spray program) will be comparable to other mid-tier liquid industry standards and can also be less expensive than many other competitors.
