“Herbicide-impregnated dry fertilizer has been one of the most successful technological advances for pasture management over the past decade,” said Morgan Bohlander, Range & Pasture Marketing Category Leader at Corteva Agriscience. “Now, UltiGraz Pasture Weed & Feed gives producers the peace of mind that comes with a certified retailer program and unmatched product support.”
The certified fertilizer retailer impregnates herbicide onto dry fertilizer granules (prills) during the blending process. UltiGraz Pasture Weed & Feed requires a soil-active herbicide — DuraCor® herbicide, for example — to work. Rainfall puts the solution into the soil where weeds take up the herbicide.
One Pass. Better Grass.℠
UltiGraz Pasture Weed & Feed helps contain costs while enhancing productivity by eliminating an application expense and increasing forage production. Every pound of weeds controlled on pastureland and hayfields increases seasonal forage production by 1 to 1.5 pounds of desirable grass and improves utilization by grazing animals. Plus, including a herbicide helps ensure the fertilizer goes to growing grass, not weeds.
“Often, fertilizer goes out early in the spring and the producer has the full intention to come back later with weed control,” said Scott Flynn, Range & Pasture Field Scientist at Corteva Agriscience. “But then the realities of the season hit, and unpredictable spring weather and fieldwork get in the way of timely pasture spraying. UltiGraz Pasture Weed & Feed helps ensure both important steps get done — and done right.”The network of fertilizer retailers and custom applicators offering UltiGraz Pasture Weed & Feed must complete extensive education and training to become certified by Corteva.
