What is Aspire®?
Aspire® is the first-of-its-kind micronutrient-enhanced potash fertilizer. Formed using innovative Nutriform® technology, Aspire premium potash combines potassium (K) and boron (B) (0-0-58-0.5B), in each granule to help achieve balanced crop nutrition.
How does Aspire help crop performance?
By combining K and B in one granule, Aspire reduces the risk of uneven application and improves nutrient use for maximum yields. Nutrients such as B and K are crucial for cell growth, water-use efficiency, stress tolerance, reproductive development stages and more. Ultimately, the use of Aspire results in gained efficiencies, maximized yields and increased profitability.
Which nutrients are in Aspire?
Aspire contains K and B (0-0-58-0.5B), best suited for corn, soybeans, cotton and alfalfa. Some retailers and farmers have explored using Aspire on other crops as well with on-farm success. These nutrients are combined with Nutriform technology into one nutritionally balanced granule. This is especially important for B, which is mobile in soil. Due to its immobility within the plant, it is best applied directly to the soil versus a foliar application. Boron is the second most deficient crop micronutrient in the world, next to zinc. There is a fine line between B deficiency and toxicity, which is why applying exactly the right amount is critical.

What is Nutriform® Technology?
The Nutriform technology process combines two vital nutrients into one uniquely formulated granule. It ensures uniform nutrient distribution across the field and promotes nutrient uptake by providing key nutrients at the root level.
For which crops does Aspire help improve yield?
Aspire has demonstrated improved yields across a variety of crops and soil conditions. Third-party, independent research is available for corn, soybeans, cotton and alfalfa. Some retailers and farmers have explored using Aspire on other crops as well with on-farm success.
How much will Aspire increase yield?
Aspire was tested in 20 trials across the United States and found to increase yield by 1.6 bu/ac over MOP and 3 bu/ac over unfertilized soybean fields. The higher yield with Aspire compared to other treatments demonstrates the advantages of uniform nutrient distribution with a premium potash fertilizer containing B.
