Application Opportunities

Soil biology is an important partner for any grower. Microbes help with seed germination, plant protection, plant health, nutrient uptake, yield and crop residue digestion. 

    In-Furrow Starter: insures maximum soil microbiology to help the germinating crop seed thrive. 

    Foliar: CX-1 is a fertility enhancer and aids in rescue fertility for crops during the season. Feed and protect your grains, forages, or vegetables better through plant nutrition at both a leaf and root level. 

    Crop Residue Digestion: apply CX-1 to crop residue (stover) to help breakdown cellulose, free up soil and return beneficial nutrients back to the soil.
