Anuvia™ Plant Nutrients announces an agreement with Southern States Cooperative to market Anuvia's SymTRX™ to crop producers. SymTRX is an enhanced-efficiency, multi-nutrient, slow-release specialty fertilizer made to fit the needs of crop production while also adhering to the highest standards of environmental stewardship.
Throughout a rich heritage dating back to 1923, Southern States has grown to be one of the nation's largest agricultural cooperatives owned by more than 200,000 farmer-members with 1,200 retail outlets in 23 states.
"Southern States, with its reputation for strong member relationships and for delivering new products and technology that bring value to their members," says Hugh MacGillivray, Anuvia Plant Nutrients executive vice president Commercial, "is a great fit for us with a product like SymTRX. The product represents cutting edge nutrient delivery technology while optimizing crop performance."
SymTRX is different from other fertilizer products. Anuvia's proprietary processing system uses multiple sources of organic waste materials to create its plant nutrient products. SymTRX's slow release delivers nutrients such as ammonium N and sulfur sulfate when growing plants need them most––releasing 65% of its nutrients within the first two to three weeks and the balance providing feeding for up to eight weeks. It also contains 16% organic matter which contributes to soil health.
"We're excited for the agronomic, economic and environmental benefits that the SymTRX 20S product will provide to our customers," says Steve Becraft, Southern States executive vice president of agronomy. "We believe the SymTRX 20S product is a profitable growing solution that will provide tremendous value to our customers."
"We have a unique product that brings many benefits to growers. It improves crop performance and soil health and it's a great example of sound environmental stewardship," says MacGillivray. "Like us, Southern States believes in maximizing nutrient use and minimizing nutrient loss. We look forward to working together and building even stronger relationships with coop members."
