Innovative introduces first magnesium chloride fertiilzer for North American farmers
AgMag is approved for organic production as a crop fertilizer and soil amendment to help increase quality and yield in row crops.
Innovative President and CEO Greg Baun said that as demand for organic foods continues to grow, farmers are looking for cost-effective solutions.
“We are proud to offer North American farmers a liquid organic fertilizer that will increase quality and yields across a range of crops, and also contains natural fungal suppressant properties,” Baun said. “We continue to see excellent results from our trials with Cornell University, and the most comprehensive trials at farms in New York and New England will take place this year.”
AgMag is the base material for Innovative’s family of value-added agriculture blends, which include NutriMag. The magnesium chloride used in AgMag also forms the base for the company’s broad line of de-icing, dust-control and industrial products.
Ray McDonald, general manager of Innovative’s Canadian distribution partner, Cangrow Crop Solutions, said AgMa provides a superior organic option to traditional Epsom salts, which many organic farmers use as a source of magnesium.
