RC Gold and Why!

   RC Gold 4X is the cornerstone of the Fertrell’s dairy nutrition program. It came about 13 years ago. When fuel prices were astronomical and the cost of shipping products became way too expensive. At the same time milk prices were depressed. The farmer’s woes were coming from 2 sides fuel price up and milk prices down. This economic storm was the trigger for developing RC Gold 4X.

Fertrell Specialty Fertilizers: Berry Mix & Holly Care

Fertrell Specialty Fertilizers: Berry Mix & Holly Care

Berry Mix is a unique Fertrell product used in berry fertility programs. Berry Mix is effective when used on blueberries, strawberries, and all brambles including raspberries, blackberries and black caps. It is a blended plant food specially designed to grow more, bigger, and tastier berries. It has an analysis of 4-2-4, with added Sulfur, Boron and Zinc. It works in most soil types and is safe and easy to use. Additionally, Fertrell’s Berry Mix can be certified organic, but please contact your certifier before using.
Berry Mix is applied in early spring to get berry growth started off right for the season. Typical spring application rates are 4-6 lbs. per 100-foot row, depending on the type of berry. Berry Mix is also applied late in the season, after harvesting, so that nutrients can be absorbed in the plants’ roots preparing the them for heavy fruit production the following spring. Typical late season application rates are 6–10 lbs. per 100-foot row, depending on berry type. Information about the complete Fertrell Berry Care Program is available in our Farm and Garden catalog or by contacting one of our agronomists. It is especially important to note that blueberries, which thrive in acidic soils, require additional amendments to maximize production.

Parasite Pressure Prevention

Parasite pressure peaks in the spring. During the cold winter months, parasites go dormant, and as spring comes and the weather gets warmer, parasites re-emerge. Internal parasites can cause a decrease in animal productivity, from a reduction in milk production to decreased weight gain.

New Products - Beneficial Soil Bacteria!

Fertrell is proud to introduce two new products that can benefit your soil - Fertrell Beneficial Biology and Fertrell Mychorrizae Plus.

Spring Freshening

Some of the Keys to a Successful spring freshening that I have seen in past are: Good energy and protein levels, proper anionic minerals, above average vitamin levels, and a toxin binder when on stored feeds. It is fairly well known that proper amount of energy is necessary for calf development and cow body condition. You can’t see inside to know what the calf looks like. But you can see the cow and how her body condition is looking.

Soak Your Seeds

A good strong start to your season can make all the difference.
