Why Use Rock 40?

You've heard of this new dry fertilizer, but are still confused as to why it is beneficial?  Then read on!

Rock 40 offers a great dry fertilizer replacement for traditional 11-52-0 blend.  Rock 40 is homengenous so every granule contains the same amount of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Sulfur, and Zinc.  This makes for superior nutrient placement.  The 11-52-0 blend has a more varied distribution.  Another benefit of using Rock 40 over 11-52-0 is the type of sulfur present in Rock 40.  It is more readily plant available over that of the sulfur blended in 11-52-0.  The zinc in Rock 40 is also preferred to competitive homogeneous products because of its plant availability.  Please refer to the links below for a detailed sketch about nutrient placement.

Good Yields on DeKalb Corn
We have seen some good yields and most growers are having a lower moisture earlier so they can get the
corn out of the field and in the elevator. View test plot data at
