Worldwide, sorghum is a food grain produced for human consumption. In the US, sorghum is used primarily as a feed grain for livestock. Feed value of grain sorghum is similar to corn. Average temperatures of at least 80°F during July are needed for maximum grain sorghum yields, and day-time temperatures of at least 90°F are needed for maximum photosynthesis. Kansas is the top sorghum producer in the US.
Plant exudates known as carboxylates are exuded from a plant root system as a function of cell division occurring. The exudates of most significance are typically found to be deficient in the soil, leading to a tie up of key nutrients such as phosphorus, iron, calcium, manganese, and zinc in the soil. The addition of C.A.L.F.A® aids in this conversion of nutrients to plant available forms during critical growth periods, preventing deficiencies that may impact crop yield and quality.
C.A.L.F.A.® is a proprietary blend of 40% nature-based carboxylic acid solution designed to release soil nutrients into plant available forms during critical plant growth and development stages.
