NACHURS liquid starters have a neutral pH and are low in both salt index and impurities. These features of our liquid starters enable the product to be placed directly with the seed at planting time. Placement with the seed allows the available phosphorus to be taken up at the critical early stages of growth to maximize yield potential.
NACHURS liquid starters contain 80% - 100% of their phosphates in the available orthophosphate form. Orthophosphate is immediately available to the plant during the critical early stages of growth. Plants can only take up phosphorus in the orthophosphate form.
In an independent survey, farmers from across the United States were asked why they utilized starter fertilizer as part of their crop production program. The most common responses were:
• Gives crop a faster start
• Plant is healthier
• Increases yield, better production
• Helps early plantings
• Gives nutrients to the roots, supplies secondary nutrients
• Best for our tillage situation
What is a true solution liquid fertilizer?
A true solution liquid fertilizer has the following characteristics:
• Will not settle out
• High solubility
• Each drop has the exact same ratio or percentage of nutrients
• Greater flexibility in mixing with other products
Plant Nutrient RequirementsYield potential will vary from farm to farm across North America due to a variety of factors. The key is to provide a balanced fertility program that will allow you to achieve the total benefit from your crop production acres. In the early growth stages of the corn plant there is a definite need for a combination of Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium to set the potential for maximum yields.

Corn Ear Growth and Development
The total yield per acre comes down to the number of bushels produced. Bushels per acre are directly related to the number of ears and kernels per ear. Many farmers don’t realize how soon the corn plant actually establishes the ear and determines the number of kernel rows that an individual ear will have.

Early fertility levels and nutrient concentration in the developing root zone play a determining factor in what the final yield will be at harvest time. Availability of those nutrients in the root zone is also an important consideration because nutrient availability is influenced by a variety of factors.
As a seed germinates, it quickly uses up the sugars and starches in the seed and looks for additional sources of nutrients for early season growth. Availability of essential nutrients at this stage can have a major impact on achieving the genetic potential of the seed.
During the growing season, plant roots will come in contact with approximately 2% of the soil area. With this in mind we also must remember that the movement of Phosphorus and Potassium in the soil is limited. Phosphorus moves less than 1/10 of an inch once the plant is growing. The Potassium ion will only move through the soil solution about 1/4 of an inch by diffusion during the growing season.
