MICROPLUS is a 100% vegetable-based additive, specially developed for micronutrient binding in NPK fertilizers.
In the last two decades, Agro market has improved its vision on the subject of necessity of micronutrients in crop nutrition significantly even drastically. After the diagnose of need for micronutrients in a field, issue is to determine application solutions to apply correct amount of the proper nutrient on the field during the growth.
Market tendency in fertilizer industry is adding micronutrients to fertilizer in order to reach particular micronutrient requirements and increase fertilizer value. Even though is very effective on the field this custom makes production of a high-grade granule difficult. FertMinas has broad portfolio in providing solutions and improving characteristics of P, K, Urea, AN, AS and bulk fertilizer blends. Quality of the final formula is significantly improved after; Fert Minas products provide anti-dusting, dust control and anti-caking coatings which at the same time fortify softer fertilizer granules.
Separation is a big problem when mixing micronutrients with fertilizer due to differences in the physical properties. Most economical micronutrients are usually in powder form. When only a small percentage of a powdered micronutrient is needed for a bulk blend of multi-nutrient formula, and that blend is spread over multiple acres of land, there can be high amount of separation of micronutrient particles resulting in uneven application in the field resulting in uneven growth of the plant.
FertMinas developed different systems to confront this challenge in order to get more homogenous distribution of the micronutrients in the fertilizer and in the field.
Fert Minas coatings are micronutrient binding additive developed exclusively for this purpose which produce stable micronutrient fertilizer blends for up to 3 months. MICROPLUS provides consistent, uniform micronutrient distribution on fertilizer surfaces, improved appearance and color, and dust suppression characteristics. MICROPLUS developed in Brazil is currently used in Latin America, United States and Europe.
Fert Minas engineers will follow up every step of the way to diagnose your needs, perform and supervise micronutrient fertilizer blend formulation development and stability testing, entire engineering design and equipment installation, and provide ongoing technical support to optimize final product.
