For over a decade, Wolf Trax has been focused on improving plant health through plant nutrition. This week Wolf Trax hosted a field tour near Elm Creek, Manitoba, to showcase current technologies and introduce future nutrient products.

Wolf Trax starting selling DDP (dry dispersible powder) products nearly 11 years ago. The products were developed for use as a coating in fertilizer or as a foliar application. “It allows you to be far more efficient with your fertilizer because of the physical properties of the product, which is the particle size,” says Kerry Green, managing director for Wolf Trax. He explains they’re able to utilize macronutrients as carriers to take the required micronutrients to each plant. The micronutrients are designed to evenly coat and adhere to every prill of dry N, P, or K.

Melanie Klassen, director of technical and sales assistance, says one of the main benefits of Wolf Trax DDP powdered nutrients is the ability to coat an entire blend of fertilizer and provide a blanket distribution across the field. “You are no longer leaving root-to-nutrient contact to chance,” says Klassen.

A new phosphorus based DDP product, in the experimental stages, was featured at the showcase. The product is designed for growers using phosphorus fertilizer at planting. It can be applied as a seed or fertilizer coating.

Current products offered by Wolf Trax include:

  • Boron

  • Calcium

  • Copper

  • Cropmix DDP

  • Iron DDP

  • Manganese DDP

  • Magnesium DDP

  • Turfmix DDP

  • Zinc DDP

By utilizing the technology provided by Wolf Trax, producers are able to handle less product -- which translates to less wear and tear on equipment, the ability to get more out of every fertilizer pass, and less fuel usage, says Green.
