The Andersons, Inc. announced a patent has been granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for its Phosfix liquid fertilizer, which is produced at its facility in Upper Sandusky, Ohio.

Part of the family of MicroSolutions micronutrients, Phosfix is a 7-4-9 with trace amounts of micronutrients that improves yield and profit by enhancing crop vigor and encouraging crop health. Phosfix is designed for use on all crops and helps plants recover from environmental stress. Early application enhances seed set and fruit fill.

Phosfix is derived from phosphorous acid (phosphite), which assists plants in maximizing the efficiency of applied nutrients. Phosphite does not replace phosphate fertilizer. Instead, phosphite should be used in tandem to reduce stress, prevent disease, and increase crop yield.

"Phosfix is a powerful combination of macro and micronutrients that improves plants¹ tolerance to stress and helps them grow through adverse growing conditions," says Bill Wolf, President of The Andersons Plant Nutrient Group.

This newly granted patent is the first for The Andersons¹ ag specialty product line within its Plant Nutrient Group. The Group holds an additional 50 patents for products in the professional turf and cob businesses.
