Soybean (Glycine max), also called soja bean or soya bean, is an annual legume of the pea family (Fabaceae), cultivated for its edible seed. The soybean is economically the most important bean in the world, providing vegetable protein for millions of people and ingredients for hundreds of chemical products.
Adequate moisture during the growing season is critical to ensuring a healthy crop. However, moisture can also cause yield loss through pod shatter. The intrusion of moisture from rain or dew can cause expansion and contraction of pods, weakening the overall structure. Pod Ceal® binds to a pod’s natural waxes and minimizes this expansion and contraction, helping to minimize pod shatter losses.
Pod Ceal® is a unique formulation containing cyclohexane polymer concentrate.
Manganese deficiencies, characterized by interveinal chlorosis, as well as curling of the leaf margins, can impact soybean yields and quality. The addition of supplemental manganese can help to remedy deficiency effects. Our Science™ Bean Mix dry fertilizer contains 10% manganese as well as a mix of 5 other EDTA chelated micronutrients to provide key nutrition, preventing late season “hidden hunger.”

In the presence of non-chelated micronutrients, Glyphosate activity is reduced because it reacts with certain nutrients.
During the season, the translocation and availability of key nutrients can dramatically impact the quality of harvest at the end of the growing cycle. Microplex® provides a well-rounded mix of micronutrients to address numerous plant functions occurring during critical growth stages. By delivering more than just one micronutrient, balanced interactions between nutrients within the plant are maintained and the prevention of micronutrient deficiencies can be potentially achieved.
Microplex® is a chelated EDTA blend of eight micronutrients designed for maximum plant response in foliar or soil applications.
Fruit set is categorized as the critical transition period shortly after fertilization as plant processes switch over to fruit formation and growth. A successful fruit set is integral to a healthy crop at harvest. This process can be improved with the addition of Cytokin® at key timings. Cytokin® contains plant growth hormones responsible for cell division, cell enlargement, and various other plant growth functions. The nature-based plant growth regulator effects help to maximize conditions necessary for fruit set and early fruit development.
Cytokin® is a plant- based EPA registered plant growth regulator designed to increase crop production efficiency.
