Mosaic took blending fertilizer to a new level with its new product called MicroEssentials. Instead of just blending nitrogen, phosphorus, sulfur and zinc in a granular form, Mosaic blended all four products into one granule. This way the nutrients are evenly distributed when applied in the field. In addition, putting the nutrients in a layered granule encourages positive interactions, reports Dan Froehlich, director of agronomy for Mosaic. “Sulfur helps with nitrogen uptake, while zinc helps with phosphorus uptake,” he says.

MicroEssentials is available in three formulations, all with added sulfur and one with zinc. It may be used on corn and soybeans.
