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.

According to Marcus Conrad, General Manager Trading at JM Fertilizer LLC in Tampa which served as the shipment’s distributor, “Both our customer and the team at Charah Agricultural Products were thrilled with the quality of the product upon delivery. This material underwent the ultimate stress test as it traveled from Louisville to Tampa on rail, sat in a rail yard for five weeks awaiting a vessel and then traversed the Gulf of Mexico in five days under extremely humid conditions without clumping or dusting. The quality of SUL4R-PLUS calcium sulfate really exceeded our customer’s expectations.”

SUL4R-PLUS fertilizer, in its unique patent-pending pelletized form, is an in-demand 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 byproduct, making sulfur and calcium 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 crop nutrient’s pelletized form makes sulfur and calcium application easier, enhances soil quality and boosts yield of all crops including corn, soybeans, wheat, alfalfa, and other crops including legumes, fruit, vegetables and more.

The customer in the Dominican Republic plans to use SUL4R-PLUS calcium sulfate in fertilizer blends on variety of fruit and vegetables including green peppers, sugarcane and citrus to enhance yields and in turn profits. In addition, the product is being used directly for golf courses as a soil amendment and to help green the grass. Charah Agricultural Products is currently quoting additional orders to other countries throughout the region.

“Because of its uniform pellet 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 has added several storage facilities in the Mid-West Marketplace with locations now in Louisville, KY; Farmer City, IL; Hoopeston, IL; Breckenridge, MI; Middleton, MI; St. Louis, MO; Caledonia, OH; Prairie Du Chien, WI and Lacrosse, WI to provide greater access to SUL4R-PLUS fertilizer.
