CrossOver soil amendment registered for crops, turf in 44 states

June 18, 2015

CrossOver soil amendment, made by Harsco, is registered for use on a number of agricultural crops, turf and horticultural crops in 44 states.  

It is a refined magnesium and calcium silicate based fertilizer. Plants benefit from the release of calcium, magnesium and silicates into the soil and subsequent plant uptake that helps correct magnesium and calcium deficiencies and reduces drought stress; improves tolerance to heat or cold stress; and improves plant structural strength and resistance to lodging in those crops subject to lodging.   

CrossOver should be applied during field preparation prior to planting, during seeding, soon after emergence or transplanting according to label directions. The product must be applied by light mechanical incorporation assuring soil contact for proper particle breakdown.

Marketed by Numerator Technologies, Inc. and manufactured by Harsco Metals & Minerals, the product’s strong Silicon component offers advantages under a number of plant and climatic conditions. 

It enhances the crop’s ability to resist and tolerate a number of environmental stresses.  Production and formulation of Si and Si blends have been brought into sharper focus by both the academic and commercial sectors in hopes of increasing general awareness of the agronomic benefits they provide. 

Introduced last year, it is being sold domestically and will also be distributed and sold under the CrossOver brand internationally. It is currently registered for use on both monocots and dicots in most states. 

Note: CrossOver is not registered for use in Illinois, Minnesota, Montana, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming.  There are certain use restrictions in Washington and Oregon.  Contact your state departments of agriculture for information.
