“Herbicide-impregnated dry fertilizer for pastures has been one of the most successful technological advances for pasture management in recent memory,” says Morgan Bohlander, Range & Pasture category leader at Corteva Agriscience. “UltiGraz gives producers the peace of mind that comes with a certified applicator program and unmatched product support.”
The concept is simple enough. In states where permitted, your certified fertilizer retailer sprays herbicide onto dry fertilizer granules (prills) during the blending process. UltiGraz requires a soil-active herbicide — DuraCor® herbicide, for example — to work. Rainfall puts the solution into the soil where weeds take up the herbicide.
Including herbicide with fertilizer applications via UltiGraz delivers the one-two punch pastures need for a fast start.
“Often, fertilizer goes out early in the spring and the producer has the full intention to come back later with weed control,” Bohlander explains. “But then the realities of the season hit, and unpredictable spring weather and fieldwork get in the way of timely pasture spraying. UltiGraz Pasture Weed & Feed helps ensure both important steps get done — and done right.”
The network of fertilizer retailers and custom applicators offering UltiGraz must complete extensive education and training to become certified by Corteva. This elite group is committed to the highest standards of blending, application and product stewardship for consistent results. You’ll receive a herbicide recommendation customized to your pastures and weed spectrum. If you have your own application equipment, UltiGraz gives you the freedom to self-apply, too, as long as your equipment is exclusively used for pastures.
UltiGraz Pasture Weed & Feed offers great convenience: a time-saver, one less trip, one less application cost. If you’re in one of the 22 states where UltiGraz Pasture Weed & Feed is an option, visit UltiGraz.com to learn more and to find a fertilizer retailer offering UltiGraz. If liquid applications better suit your situation, your retailer likely can help with that, too. Unlike products that contain 2,4-D, DuraCor easily mixes with liquid UAN, even at near-freezing temperatures, making it ideal for early spring applications.
Whether liquid or dry, either weed-and-feed option offers a great way to ensure two important tasks get done while saving some of the expense. Learn more at UltiGraz.com.
