Wolf Trax is adding magnesium to its innovative DDPnutrient portfolio. Magnesium DDP is designed to be an efficient way for growers to address magnesium deficiencies in producing crops.

“Our customers have been asking for a better way to apply magnesium to crops. We are seeing significant early crop growth response to Magnesium DDP, which is what customers have been looking for,” said Kerry Green, managing director with Wolf Trax, in describing the research completed before marketing. 

Wolf Trax used the patented, scientifically-engineered DDP technology in developing Magnesium DDP. Formulated as a dry dispersible powder, Magnesium DDP will coat dry fertilizer for higher quality blends, better field coverage and easier access for plant roots, Green said.

Magnesium DDP also features what the company calls Dual Action Formulation, providing immediate availability for plant uptake, along with extended feeding over time. The good distribution and improved nutrient availability combine to result in more efficient and effective nutrient applications, which is a major promise made with DDP products.

“As with all our products, Magnesium DDP is backed by a commitment to purity and quality standards, thorough testing and is, of course, covered by our industry-leading Growing Forward Guarantee,” said Green.

Magnesium deficiency is a growing problem in highly productive soils. The immediate availability of magnesium with this new product will be an important characteristic to solving deficiency challenges and an advantage over granular products, the company contends.

Availability will be limited this spring. To sell this new product for the 2013 season, U.S. agriculture retailers need to submit orders to Wolf Trax by Dec. 15, 2012.

Wolf Trax will host two webinar sessions about the new Magnesium DDP for fertilizer dealers on Jan. 15 and Jan. 17. To sign up to attend a webinar, e-mail info@wolftrax.com.
