Anuvia Plant Nutrients has announced an agreement with GFG Ag Services — ranked No. 33 on the 2017 CropLife 100 — 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.
GFG Ag Services, with locations in Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa, has built its reputation on individualized service always putting the customer first. Founded 30 years ago, they offer a range of services including farm inputs, crop insurance, financing, and grain handling services.
“GFG understands that fertilization is not a blanket prescription that fits all farms,” says Hugh MacGillivray, Anuvia Plant Nutrients executive vice president Commercial. “Each farm is different with different fertilization needs. While improving yields is an essential part of the plant nutrient equation, improving soil health by restoring nutrient levels and using environmentally-sound sustainable practices are also critical considerations. SymTRX will provide all these important benefits to GFG customers.”
SymTRX is made by Anuvia’s proprietary processing system using multiple sources of organic waste materials. Its cutting-edge nutrient delivery technology slowly releases 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.
“GFG is very excited to partner with Anuvia Plant Nutrients as we continue to bring innovative products to our customers,” says Derek Stanley, GFG Ag Services Wholesale Fertilizer manager. “Our customers are under real pressure to be stewards to the environment while increasing their productivity on every acre. This partnership will allow us to bring them products to accomplish both goals.”
“We have a unique product that improves the economics of farming. It improves crop performance and soil health. And it’s a great example of sound environmental stewardship by maximizing nutrient use and minimizing nutrients loss,” says MacGillivray. “We look forward to working with GFG and helping them introduce their growers to SymTRX.”
