WinfieldTM NutriTech Tool
We are pleased to offer our customers proprietary resin testing, the most innovative nutrient management tool available. Offered in partnership with UNIBEST International, a Washington-based technology company, the resin monitoring system features advanced ion-exchange resin technologies that absorb nutrients from soils when they are in forms available to a plant during the growing season. Conventional testing methods that extract soil chemicals with other chemicals do not accurately reflect how elements in a natural soil environment respond to continuous removal by biological activity over time. Resin technology absorbs plant-available nutrients from the soil by exchanging H+ and OH- ions for available nutrients in the soil-root environment, much like a plant root. This closely matches nutrient uptake by plant roots and provides a more accurate understanding of nutrient needs. Resin technology can also be used to monitor nutrient levels in water bodies.
As a leading indicator of plant nutrition, resin technology has the ability to measure available nutrients in all soil types, offering managers the ability to detect nutrient imbalances or deficiencies early and apply appropriate inputs before the change is detected by the plant.
