CHS River Plains customers wanted a free-flowing nutrient product for use in a variety of application managements that matched the soil needs of this countryside. Our solution? MicroEssentials SZ (12-40-0-10S-1Zn).

MicroEssentials SZ (MES SZ) is a premium product for use on all crops, including corn, soybeans, and wheat. Every granule contains four vital nutrients: nitrogen, phosphorus, sulfur, and zinc. They work together to increase phosphorus uptake by up to 30%.

MES SZ works better than other fertilizers for several reasons. The granules are formed in a way that allows plants to absorb them more easily. Through a patented manufacturing process, the correct ratios of vital nutrients are in each granule. This allows nutrients to be spread uniformly, ensuring that each plant gets the nutrients it needs. Plus, it has two forms of sulfur for season-long nutrition.

MicroEssentials SZ provides a more efficient way to deliver the crop nutrients needed to help improve your bottom line. Its benefits go beyond simple farm economics. Every MicroEssentials granule contains the nutrients required for optimal crop growth. Improved nutrient uptake means less waste of applied fertilizer and greater efficiency.

Key benefits:

  • Ensures balanced nutrition through even distribution of nutrients
  • Eliminates risk of component segregation and settling, as with traditional blends
  • Delivers two forms of season-long sulfur availability: sulfate and elemental sulfur
  • Innovative granule chemistry improves nutrient uptake
  • Provides convenience and ease of use as a direct application, blend or starter
