It's not easy being in the agricultural business these days. Rising costs, declining crop margins, regulatory pressure, water issues and nitrogen runoff problems. All the while trying to reduce your impact on the environment. What's a farmer to do?

Awhile back, some of our customers asked if we could develop a product out of our diatomaceous earth or clay that they could blend with other products to help improve crop production. They wanted a product that would allow them to add liquid chemicals to their dry fertilizer as well as improve flow-ability. Also, they needed to decrease clumping in products they were currently using. They wanted a carrier for new pesticide formulations they were developing.  

Ta da! After lots of product testing, we came up with a perfect agricultural blending agent and fertilizer carrier - EP Minerals' AgReady. AgReady is a granular diatomaceous earth (DE) or clay drying agent and carrier, designed specifically for the agricultural industry - for crop production . Easy to use with dry or liquid agriculture blends, AgReady improves the efficiency of applying nutrients and pesticides to crops. Its low density makes it “ready” to use in blends today. We've developed AgReady in both DE and clay versions to meet our customer requests.

In the testing we've done, AgReady proves effective in blending with:

  • Fertilizers and nitrogen stabilizers
  • Pesticides
  • Herbicides
  • Micro-nutrients
  • Micorrhizal innoculants
  • Beneficial micro-organisms

Benefits for today's farmers:

  • High absorptive capacity
  • Improves flow-ability
  • Allows liquid additives to be added to dry fertilizers
  • Reduces clumping caused by humid weather
  • Saves money with increased efficiency

We've received very positive feedback from our customers that are using AgReady as a blending agent today. We'd love to talk to you about how you can use it for your fertilizer blend!
