Two new potassium fertilizer technologies launched by Wilbur-Ellis Co.

Wilbur-Ellis announced May 14 the launch of two new potassium fertilizer technologies, Till-It Kompound  and Foli-Gro Kilo. These highly soluble, carbon-based potassium fertilizers drive bio-activation in soil or as a foliar-applied product.Foli-Gro Kilo is a single-source potassium acetate fertilizer.Till-It Kompound pushes both potassium and sulfur into plants through soil or fertigation applications.

Growers know potassium is a critical part of any fertility program driving photosynthesis, nutrient transport and standability throughout the season. But not all potassium sources are the same – solubility and availability play a huge role, especially when plants need in-season potassium to fill nuts, pods or fruit.

Foli-Gro Kilo is a carbon-based potassium source with high solubility and availability for any foliar, in-furrow or soil applied liquid fertilizer application. The combination of highly available potassium with a carbon base creates a unique, bioactivated potassium source for plants.

Till-It Kompound combines the KILO technology with sulfur, creating a solution for straight applications or combinations with Urea Ammonium Nitrate or Ammonium Polyphosphate (APP). By providing both sulfur and available potassium, Till-It Kompound is beneficial when applied alone, or can create custom solutions that increase stalk strength, standability and yield of most crops. 

“These two new technologies are centered around potassium nutrition, a critical in-season need in all crops for improving quality and yield,” said Wilbur-Ellis’ Value Added Nutrition Manager Matt Werner. “From row-crops to almonds, potassium mobilizes nutrients, photosynthesis and enzyme systems inside plants but is not often addressed in-season. With these two new options from Wilbur-Ellis, growers can apply in-season potassium into their program as a foliar, drip or soil application and see an immediate benefit.”

Founded in 1921, the Wilbur-Ellis companies are leading international marketers and distributors of agricultural products, animal feed and specialty chemicals and ingredients. By developing strong relationships, making strategic market investments and capitalizing on new opportunities, the Wilbur-Ellis companies have continued to grow the business with sales now over $3 billion. wilburellis.com. 

Wilbur-Ellis Agribusiness generates more than $2 billion in sales revenue annually and has over 160 branch locations throughout the U.S. ag.wilburellis.com
