Sterics®

Soil Nutrient



Make your soils work harder

Sterics® delivers soil-applied nutrients that delay the chemical fixation reactions between phosphorus, potassium and sulfur in alkaline or acidic soils. This patented chemistry allows for phosphorus, potassium and sulfur to enter and stay available for longer periods in the soil.

The details
  • Get same or better results using less phosphorus, potassium or sulfur
  • Higher efficiency
  • Low salt index for excellent plant safety
  • Technically advanced
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Fewer applied elements mean a reduced environmental footprint

Liquid
Steric P III®

Designed to correct phosphate deficiencies, Steric P III® quickly boosts plant growth during critical or high-growth periods.

Steric K®

Designed to correct potassium deficiencies, Steric K® quickly boosts plant growth during critical or high-growth periods.

Steric S®

Designed to correct sulfur deficiencies, Steric S® quickly boosts plant growth during critical or high-growth periods and provides readily available sulfate. Steric S is formulated to promote sulfur uptake and metabolism.

Steric MKS®

Designed to correct magnesium, potassium and sulfur deficiencies, Steric MKS® is ideal for use as a starter or sidedress fertilizer injected into the soil. It quickly boosts plant growth during critical or high-growth periods.

Dry
Steric P DS®

Designed to correct phosphate deficiencies, Steric P DS® quickly boosts plant growth during critical or high-growth periods. As a dry formulation, it dissolves in water to allow the nutrients to be injected into irrigation systems.

Steric K DS®

Designed to correct potassium deficiencies, Steric K DS® quickly boosts plant growth during critical or high-growth periods. As a dry formulation, it dissolves in water to allow the nutrients to be injected into irrigation systems.

Steric S DS®

Designed to correct sulfur deficiencies, Steric S DS® quickly boosts plant growth during critical or high-growth periods. As a dry formulation, it dissolves in water to allow the nutrients to be injected into irrigation systems.

Application Guidelines

Always read and follow label instructions and restrictions before use.

Application Instructions

Soil applications can be incorporated in liquid fertilizer or applied separately. This product is most effective when applied through an irrigation system or banded.

Apply 2 to 10 gallons per acre mixed with compatible fertilizers. Add to a partially filled tank and continue to fill. If mixing permits, allow agitation of the solution in tank to ensure uniform mixing. To use alone: if you do not have a soil or leaf analysis, see label for recommended use rates.

Compatibility

This product is compatible with acid-based fertilizers and other plant nutrients. If unfamiliar with its use, be sure to check with a crop advisor for compatibility.

Steric can be applied to most vegetable crops, row crops, deciduous fruit and nut trees, citrus, avocados, grapes, melons, ornamentals, turf, pasture, range, grasses and most other crops.
