MINNEAPOLIS – February 15, 2012 – Farmers in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic regions can now provide their crops with the benefits of Agro-K’s unique phosphite-based Sysstem Series™ foliar nutrients through their area Meherrin Agricultural & Chemical Company dealers.
“Meherrin Ag’s strong service and agronomics tradition is well known by farmers from Maryland down to Florida. This distribution partnership is an excellent match for both Agro-K and Meherrin as we introduce the Sysstem Series™ and companion Agro-K products to the region,” said Chapman Mayo, president of Agro-K Corporation.
Based in Minneapolis, Agro-K has been a pioneer for more than 35 years in developing micronutrients and products that strengthen soil health. Improved integration of key nutritive elements within plants increases vigor, quality and yield, Mayo noted.
Sysstem Series foliar nutrients feature the unique absorption and systemic properties of Agro-K’s advanced phosphite technology.
Sysstem Series efficiently delivers the benefits of a wide selection of foliar nutrients including calcium, manganese, zinc, potassium and magnesium in a form that readily translocates at the cellular level for timely availability where the plants most need the nutritive boost.
“Agro-K products offer a prescriptive, science-based approach to crop nutrition and will have a strong fit for peanuts, pecans, tree fruit, soybeans and cotton throughout the region that Meherrin serves,” said Mayo.
Jimmy Jones, Meherrin’s General Manager, said the partnership with Agro-K will provide the Meherrin network of dealers with a top quality, innovative micronutrient product line that will address the crop-specific agronomic needs of the company’s customers and their crop consultants.
“We’re excited about the unique technology and products that Agro K is bringing to the market. They have a proven track record of success and expertise in plant nutrition. Our partnership with Agro K is a key to accomplishing our mission which it to partner with our customers by providing them agronomic inputs and services using the most effective solutions. Our customers are going to like the results they see!”
