LOUISVILLE, KY (February 11, 2016 ) – Charah®, Inc., a total solutions company providing unparalleled service and innovation for the coal-fired power generation industry, is pleased to have been featured in the February 2016 issue of Michigan Country Lines magazine, published by the Michigan Electric Cooperative Association (MECA).
Click here to read the article entitled “Keeping Soil Healthy: Gypsum’s Role in Agriculture and Electricity” detailing the benefits of synthetic gypsum and Charah Agricultural Product’s unique SUL4R-PLUS® fertilizer.
Charah Agricultural Products focuses on developing innovative products for the agricultural market including SUL4R-PLUS® fertilizer, an on-demand supply of pelletized calcium sulfate that is engineered to provide improved crop yield for growers. While synthetic gypsum has been used in agriculture applications in the past, Charah Agricultural Products has a patent-pending process to pelletize the product, making the application of calcium and sulfur easier and more efficient for the farmer therefore making it more efficient for the farmer to meet the industry’s increasing demand for sulfur. Unlike any other sulfur-fertilizer product on the market, SUL4R-PLUS’s pelletized form makes sulfur and calcium application efficient and immediately available to the plants, enhances soil quality, boosts yield, and improves the health of crops including corn, soybeans, wheat, alfalfa, and other crops such as legumes, fruit, vegetables and more.
The Michigan Country Lines article quotes Brian Stratton, a third generation farmer in Vestaburg, MI who has been using SUL4R-PLUS fertilizer on his crops. Mr. Stratton is currently participating in a Charah field study to gather data and measure the effectiveness of SUL4R-PLUS fertilizer on the property he leases from Wolverine Power Cooperative. “I like the pelletized product because it’s a much friendlier product to handle,” Stratton says. “It spreads more evenly and you don’t have the dust to contend with.” Results from the first year’s use are coming in and, despite a heavy dose of rain that caused root rot to his cranberry beans, the yield results look promising.
