Alfalfa, soybean micronutrients

Agriliance has developed a new line of micronutrients to boost alfalfa and soybean performance. The new Max-In products are part of Agriliance's Origin plant nutrients brand. The company says that the crop-based adjuvant system in Max-In increases micronutrient movement through the leaf cuticle to internal leaf structures to improve plant growth. The Max-In for alfalfa delivers boron, copper, iron, manganese and zinc. It mixes with most crop protection products. Max-In for beans provides boron, iron, manganese, molybdenum and zinc, all complexed with mannitol to enhance bean plant strength. This product also mixes with most crop protection products. When tank-mixing with glyphosate, you should add ammonium sulfate for best results.
