Wolf Trax™ Data Roundup on Corn

Thousands of data points have been collected on Wolf Trax DDP’s. This new Field Facts summarizes various data points collected on grain corn over several years and locations. It highlights the effect on tissue uptake and how more micronutrients in the crop relates to higher yields.

Field Insights Issue 26: Wolf Trax DDP Nutrients Improve Potato Yields and Grower Returns in Washington

In 2016, a replicated field study was conducted in the Columbia Basin to evaluate the performance of Wolf Trax DDP® Nutrients and Nu-Trax P+™ in potatoes. Separate applications of Nu-Trax P+ or Wolf Trax DDP Nutrients provided considerable yield benefits, and best results were obtained when Nu-Trax P+ and Wolf Trax DDP Nutrients were applied in a combined approach.

Field Insights Issue 5: Wolf Trax DDP Nutrients Increase Coffee Production in Nicaragua

In 2015, a study was conducted in Boaca Viejo, Nicaragua to evaluate the performance of Wolf Trax Magnesium DDP, Iron DDP and Boron DDP products in coffee production. Granular products were also applied for  comparison purposes. While all three DDP products performed equally or better than the granular products, Magnesium DDP increased yield by 19% and consistently increased the number of branches per tree as compared to the standard grower practice at any observation point.

Field Insights Issue 4: Wolf Trax DDP Nutrients Increase Banana Production in Nicaragua

In 2015, a study was conducted in Puerto Diaz, Nicaragua to evaluate the performance of Wolf Trax Magnesium DDP, Iron DDP and Zinc DDP products in banana production. Granular micronutrients were also applied for comparison purposes. Under the conditions of this study, all three DDP products resulted in increased banana market weight as compared to the granular form of the nutrient.

Field Insights Issue 3: Wolf Trax DDP Nutrients Improve Potato Size in Nicaragua

A study was conducted in Matagalpa, Nicaragua in 2015 to evaluate the performance of Wolf Trax DDP Nutrients on potatoes. This study showed that micronutrients significantly improved potato yields in the extra large size category over an NPK blend with no micronutrients and that DDPs outperformed traditional granular micronutrients. Wolf Trax Iron DDP and Zinc DDP coated onto the NPK blend dramatically improved yields by 155% and 309%, respectively, over a traditional NPK blend, and 22% and 43% respectively, over granular micronutrients, thus optimizing potato returns.

Field Insights Issue 2: Wolf Trax DDP Nutrients Improve Rice Yield in Nicaragua

A study was conducted in Chontales, Nicaragua in 2015 to evaluate the performance of Wolf Trax Innovative Nutrients on rice. This study showed that micronutrients gave significantly better yields over an NPK blend with no micros and that DDPs outperformed traditional granular micronutrients. Mg, Zn and Fe DDP s coated onto the NPK blend dramatically improved yields by 14%, 25% and 36%, respectively over a traditional NPK blend, thus optimizing rice yield and return on investment.

Wolf Trax DDP Micronutrients safe on high value orchard crops

Because fruit growers often apply micronutrients several times throughout the growing season, they require two things – confidence that the micronutrient will get into the fruit (uptake), and knowledge that the micronutrient will not harm or burn the fruit. Wolf Trax® has been proven effective on both counts.

Correcting common misconceptions about micronutrient fertilizer rates

“For years, the common recommendation to farmers has been to apply fairly high rates of micronutrients to deficient soils,” says Mark Goodwin, Director of Research and Development for Wolf Trax®. “That’s because rates were based on traditional granular micronutrient technology, which are inefficiently distributed in the soil.”

Three ideas for making micronutrients pay for producers this fall

As the 2011 harvest winds down, producers may be looking for ways to get the jump on next year’s fertility program. As farm sizes have gone up and as producer’s schedules have become tighter and tighter, they may be looking for ways to spread the workload by getting part of their fertility done in the fall for the 2012 crop.

How to achieve faster and longer-lasting turf “green-up” with Iron DDP

Most agronomists or groundskeepers are familiar with the growth boost and ‘green up’ that occurs on turf grass after an iron application. There is a good biological explanation for the better growth and darker green color of turf grass after an iron application. Iron is an essential element that plants need to make chlorophyll – so if you drive up chlorophyll capacity, you enhance photosynthesis and greenness.
