Keeping it simple: Multi-nutrient, seed-safe sulfur solution Polysulphate

In this free, on-demand webinar, ICL lead agronomist Dr. Jason Haegele and Craig Davidson, president of Taurus Agricultural Marketing discuss the seed-safe, multi-nutrient sulfur solution: Polysulphate (polyhalite).

Polysulphate Premium is a convenient and proven multi-nutrient source for key crops grown in Western Canada and across the US, including success in small grains, canola and potatoes. ICL’s proprietary granular fertilizer, Polysulphate (polyhalite) delivers K, S, Ca, and Mg in a single granule with an environmentally friendly and agronomically optimal release profile. Haegele and Davidson will share the latest research and insights into Polysulphate as a source of potassium for single-pass seeding and fertilization operations. This webinar will explore:

  • What is Polysulphate, the naturally occurring mineral polyhalite
  • How application timing can be modified depending on cropping season with reduced concern of sulfur loss from leaching due to fall or pre-planting applications.
  • How application rate can be modified depending on crop and fertilizer blend to target specific nutrients. For example, with canola, Polysulphate can be used to provide a greater amount of potassium placed in proximity to the seed without concern of stand loss. For potatoes, calcium is often of greater focus for yield and quality, and Polysulphate applied at a higher rate is an excellent season-long source of plant-available calcium.
  • Explore the seed-safety study, diving into stand count, yeild and the impact that can have on seeding rates
