Durum wheat is a common crop grown in the Northern Great Plains and Western Prairie Provinces of Canada.
MAP is commonly used as a phosphorus fertilizer source applied to durum wheat.
In wheat, sulfur and nitrogen are needed in a proper balance for desirable milling and baking qualities.
MicroEssentials® S15® provides N, P and S in one nutritionally balanced granule.

Sulfur deficiency in wheat
Averaged across 3 years and 12 replicated trials, MicroEssentials® S15® outyielded MAP by 1.2 bu/ac.
This data demonstrated a statistically significant yield response to the sulfur in MicroEssentials® S15®.
MicroEssentials® S15® provides uniform nutrient distribution, increased phosphorus uptake and season-long sulfur availability for additional yield and return on investment.
