LOUISVILLE, KY (May 31, 2016) – Charah®, Inc., a total solutions company providing unparalleled service and innovation for the coal-fired power generation industry, announced today that Charah Agricultural Products recently has completed its first delivery of SUL4R-PLUS® fertilizer to a customer in Ecuador. This delivery follows the company’s first international delivery to the Dominican Republic in August 2015.
Tampa-based JM Fertilizer LLC served as the shipment’s distributor through its New Orleans, Louisiana terminal. The customer in Ecuador plans to use SUL4R-PLUS calcium sulfate in fertilizer blends on bananas and a variety of other fruit crops. Charah Agricultural Products is currently quoting additional orders to other countries throughout the region.
Charah Agricultural Products focuses on developing innovative products for the agricultural market including SUL4R-PLUS fertilizer, an in-demand granular 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 create granules from the byproduct, making sulfur application easier for the farmer and meeting the increasing demand for sulfur by the regional farming industry.
Unlike any other sulfur fertilizer product on the market, SUL4R-PLUS’s granular 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.
“Because of its uniform granule size, SUL4R-PLUS calcium sulfate can be applied and blended with other dry inputs, making NPK much more efficient,” said Scott Vanderventer, Director of Sales. “It spreads evenly for superior coverage, allowing farmers to make just one pass across their field. And because it is a sulfate form of sulfur, it is immediately available and starts working almost on contact. As an added bonus, the product contains calcium as well.”
Charah now has facilities throughout the Mid-West and South with locations in Tampa, FL; Louisville, KY; Farmer City, IL; Hoopeston, IL; Seneca, IL; Jeffersonville, IN; Monon, IN; New Orleans, LA; Breckenridge, MI; Middleton, MI; St. Louis, MO; Fairless Hills, PA; La Crosse, WI and Prairie Du Chien, WI to provide greater access to SUL4R-PLUS fertilizer.
