Soileos Manganese is a soil-applied micronutrient that keeps nutrients where your crop needs them, preventing them from being tied up in the soil or leached away, making it the best choice for meeting your crop’s nutritional needs. Soileos Manganese is climate positive and increases crop yields. Its low salt index means it can be seed-placed. Soileos empowers farmers to grow better crops while improving soil health and sequestering carbon.
Manganese plays an essential role in:
The proper functioning of photosynthesis, nitrogen assimilation, and respiration
Processes such as pollen tube growth, pollen germination, carbohydrate production, and root cell elongation
Nutrients delivered from Soileos to the crop lean on the symbiotic relationship of microbes in the soil. Studies with Soileos show that it improves soil health by increasing the microbial biomass in the soil by over 20%. The carbon in Soileos is fuel for your soil microbiome. As the cellulose is broken down, microbes release or ingest nutrients. Crops can access Soileos Iron throughout the growing season resulting in increased nutrient uptake and yield response.
Soileos Manganese can be used on many different crops. Trials have shown a great response with broad acre crops such as corn, soybeans, and wheat. Ask our team for detailed trial results for your crop and region.
Soileos Manganese is an excellent source of manganese for most fertility plans. Application rates for Soileos Manganese can be based on an approximate 2x efficiency factor compared to manganese oxysulfate.
How to Use Soileos Manganese
Ease of Use
The Soileos pellet is durable and easy to handle. The material does not break down with shipping or blending with other dry fertilizers, so there is very little dust when the material is moved from bin to bin.
2,000 lbs. totes or bulk delivery.
Soileos is designed to blend well with other dry fertilizers and can be applied using existing field equipment such as air-seeders and stri-till rigs. Due to the low salt index, Soileos can be placed directly in the seed row.
When handled, the product has low dust and a high pellet durability index (PDI) of 95+, so it blends with standard dry fertilizer products without separation, settling, or breaking down.
