Prudent 40PLUS combines two effective and complementary technologies to maintain plant health, Prudent phosphite fertilizer, and Pennamin amino acids, in one easy-to-use product, according to a news release from the company.

“Prudent 40Plus combines the benefits of Prudent urea phosphite fertilizer with the stress-fighting characteristics of Pennamin amino acids pre-blended in the right ratio for maximum performance in one convenient jug,” said Don Pucillo, President of LidoChem. “It makes the farmers’ and growers’ jobs a little easier.”

Prudent 40PLUS highly concentrated phosphite fertilizer (40 percent PO3, expressed as P2O5), is formulated with patented urea phosphite and Pennamin amino acids.
