Monty’s Program

> Monty’s Program
I farm about 6500 acres of corn, soybeans, wheat and rice. I also have an aerial application service and custom apply 140,000 to 150,000 acres. I use Calcium Plus with my pesticides. I use Monty’s Agrihance S at 1 gallon per acre on my corn in row on the seed. I get better germination and more even seed emergence. Also better root growth and better root penetration. I use Agrihance V foliar on all my crops and Agrihance R on my soybeans with fantastic yields. I have no mixing problems with anything.
Perry Galloway, Arkansas Farmer and Aerial Applicator, Watch the Video Testimonial
> Monty’s Program
“I farm 5000 acres of row crops and have 300 acres of commercial hay. I use ½ gallon Calcium Plus on my soil under peanuts and Agrihance-V and Agrihance-R foliar. I definitely have seen 200 – 300 pounds increased yield where I used these products. I had less disease pressure.

On corn I use Agrihance S as my seed starter. I contribute this plus Monty’s Calcium Plus for my increased yields. I have used Calcium Plus now for 2 years on my corn ground. I have a healthier plant, quicker start coming out of the ground and a larger root mass. Monty’s products are easy to handle and no gumming up the sprayer. Prove it to yourself by trying it and splitting a field.”

> Monty’s Program
“I promote using Monty’s Liquid Carbon plus Agrihance-V, AgriHance R, and Microhance in a combined program. I recommend Monty’s products to my growers as it gives high-end results — they are consistent in quality and give consistent results. Their products are safe, easy to mix, non burning and I can mix with anything.”
Josh Briggs, Tennessee Dealer, Watch the Video Testimonial
> Monty’s program
“We raise 70 acres of dark-fired tobacco and raise 500 acres of row crops, including corn, soybeans, and wheat. I also run a cow/calf operation.
I have found Monty’s products can be sprayed with any chemical on tobacco. It does not settle out in the tank.

I use Monty’s Agrihance-V in my tobacco setter water at planting and apply Agrihance R just before topping or at topping. My tobacco shows better growth during the season and a better color at stripping time.
My tobacco did not show any disease at harvest. I have good quality and a good finish to the leaves. My tobacco hanging in the barn will weigh about 4.5 pounds per stick which is really good.”

> Monty’s program
“I farm in York County Pennsylvania and Hartford County, Maryland. I raise 1000 acres of corn, soybeans, wheat, hay, and green beans. I use Monty’s Liquid Carbon on every field in production. I also use Agrihance-S as a starter, Agrihance-V foliar, and Agrihance-R foliar.

For instance on my green beans, I treated one half of a field with Monty’s. Agrihance-R and the other half with Monty’s Calcium Plus just to compare. These were foliar applications. A drought hit, but we finally got some rain.
The broker came by and was greatly impressed with the bean quality. He said the beans are so straight and that does not happen in a drought year. Normally beans in a drought situation are crooked. What did you do? If a producer will just try Monty’s he will see a difference in the health of his crop and also in the soils health.”

Agrihance-S

> Agrihance-S on corn.
“In years past we used starter fertilizer of a competing brand. We did some trials with Agrihance-S last year – and we saw a noticeable yield difference at the end of the year. This year, we planted half with Agrihance-S and half without. What we see is more root mass and more feeder roots in the corn plant – the more root mass you have in the corn plant getting started, the healthier the start we are going to have.We’ve seen more even emergence vs not using a starter and also over competing brands.”
Ray Tucker, Kentucky Farmer, Watch the Video Testimonial
> Agrihance S on beans (with Manganese).
“I could tell the treated areas were not only getting more nutrients, but that the traditional fertilizer that I had applied was breaking down better and being absorbed more by the crop. The treated beans just utilized the nutrients more efficiently.”
Todd Velure, Farmer

> Agrihance S on watermelon

“We at Goodin View Farms in Lebanon are now firm believers in Monty’s Agrihance-S.  We used a starter in setting watermelon plants over the past week, and thus far have had great results.

We have had a lot of rain, but we needed to get the plants in the ground before they got too big.  So we pegged them in the ground (on plastic).  When it was dry enough to get the tractor in the field, we used the setter with Agrihance-S (applying the recommened 1 gallon rate) in the water tank. The plants that got Monty’s starter are off to a much better start, opened up quicker, and seem to be growing better.  We have about 20 acres of watermelons set out.”

Don Goodin, Farmer
>Monty’s Agrihance-S and Calcium Plus on corn and peanuts.
“A neighbor down the road always makes exceptional yields. He mentioned Monty’s to me and I used a little bit of it on wheat a couple of years ago – then went full scale on my corn plant with their calcium plus and Agrihance-S. On my peanuts I went a full-scale program of their Agrihance products. Started out with a ½ gallon of Calcium Plus under it. Definitely see some marked peanut yields from the use of those products. Where I did some split trials I saw 200-300 pounds difference. Definitely saw a difference in my corn. Corn yields are up – I attribute my higher yields to the use of the Monty’s products. One of the easily recognizable affects of the products is the health of the plant. Especially the quick start the plant seems to have coming out of the ground. You can definitely see a difference in root mass – but just the visual across the field of the health of the plant of the trial vs not. The Monty’s products – compared with other micronutrients products — were a lot easier to tank mix and handle. Not a lot of residue problems. No gumming up in our tanks.”
Michael Grey, Arkansas Farmer , Watch the Video Testimonial
>Agrihance-S on beans
“We used Monty’s Agrihance-S at ½ gallon per acre as a starter in the row on the seed in our soybeans. It has sped up the germination. The root system on our beans using Monty’s Agrihance-S is more developed than in the past when we used no starter. A strong root system gives it everything it needs to absorb water and nutrients.

We had nodules on the soybean plants at emergence. We had rain early, then a drought with temperature of around 103 degrees. We went for 3 weeks with no rain. Where we used the Agrihance-S, the bean plants suffered less.”

Wes Hunter, North Carolina Farmer
> Agrihance S on corn and beans
“I like the diversity of Monty’s products for different stages of growth for different crops. They are committed to Ag and their products have proven results. I recommend Monty’s Agrihance-S as a starter in the row and on the seed for corn and beans. Agrihance-S is giving us a 6 to 8 bushel yield bump on beans. Monty’s products have low use rates, are easy to use, and there is a standard application. Farmers are looking to push yields and I feel farmers are getting a return on their money.”
David Hill, Southern States Agronomist, Watch the Video Testimonial
>Monty’s Program on beans: Agrihance-S
“We tried Monty’s Agrihance-S in a split plot of soybeans. The beans came up quicker where we used the S and at harvest the beans were 6 inches taller. Roots were 3 to 3 ½ inches longer so we were better able to get to moisture. The treated beans survived the drought better.”
David Waldrop, Kentucky Farmer, | Watch the Video Testimonial
> Agrihance-S on soybeans and wheat
“I farm 1500 acres of row crops and 150 acres of burley tobacco and some hay. My first year I used Monty’s on tobacco and soybeans. I used Agrihance S on my beans in the row on the seed. Then we had a drought period. I saw a difference during the drought period as the beans were not as stressed, and when the rain came we saw the result of our beans taking off.

On my tobacco I have had fantastic results—a bigger plant and bigger leaves.

I will continue to use Monty’s and feel I must use to help my bottom line. Their program gives me a good return on my investment.”

Monty’s Liquid Carbon and Agrihance-S

>Monty’s Liquid Carbon and Agrihance-S on crop and soybeans
“We farm 4000 acres of corn, soybeans, wheat, and custom harvest corn silage for neighbors. We use Monty’s Liquid Carbon foliar on our wheat with our 28% and get less burn. This gives us a healthier plant with less stress. We use Monty’s Agrihance S on our corn in the row on the seed and are getting a quicker emergence. We also use Monty’s Liquid Carbon with our 28% when we sidedress our corn.

We use Agrihance S on our soybeans in the row on the seed and are getting a 2 to 3 bushel increase. I would say to try Liquid Carbon on your worst fields first to see quicker results. You must give it a 2 year trial—it is not a miracle product.”

Matt Stoller, Ohio Farmer
>Monty’s Liquid Carbon and Agrihance-S on tobacco and hay
“I farm 1500 acres of row crops and 150 acres of tobacco with some hay. I used Monty’s Agrihance S in the row on the seed on my soybeans. It was very dry and I could see the difference all the way through the drought. When the rains came I could see results. It was a good return on my investment.

I used Monty’s Liquid Carbon on my 150 acres of tobacco with fantastic results. I am always looking for something to give me an edge. I plan to incorporate more Monty’s into more of my acres.”

Jim Kelly, Kentucky Farmer, Watch the Video Testimonial
Monty’s Liquid Carbon and Agrihance-S
“I farm 9000 acres in North Dakota with half in small grain and the other half divided up in sunflowers and corn. I have used Monty’s for 6 or 7 years and will continue to use because of the results I have obtained. I use Agrihance-S on my row crops. It is so convenient to use.

I still use dry fertilizer but Monty’s complements my program and I have been able to reduce my dry fertilizer usage. Every time I go across my fields I use Monty’s as a foliar. It mixes well, is non corrosive, and almost no salt. It is not what Monty’s costs but what it saves me from using all conventional dry fertilizer. I have been able to reduce my input costs.
I just see good results.”

Agrihance-V

Agrihance-V on corn
“It did a good job. It really did. We thought it would take a little longer to work and wear off quicker than it actually did, but it really improved the appearance of the plants and helped bring them out of the funk they were in from the wet ground. We didn’t leave a test strip in the field, but I feel that the Agrihance helped from a yield standpoint as well.”
Westin Rink, Account Manager and Agronomist
> Monty’s Liquid Carbon and Agrihance-V
“I farm 175 acres of full season soybeans as well as raise sweet corn.
I first started using Monty’s on my sweet corn about 4 years ago. I noticed in about 12 hours I was getting a response in color.
Then I tried Agrihance-V on my soybeans with my foliar herbicide and Agrihance R later with my fungicide. I noticed an advantage of a larger amount of roots stretching out in all directions and I also think it helped with nodulation. I am making two foliar applications as I do not want my crop running out of gas.

The uptake is so quick by the plant. I feel I can rescue my crop from weather concerns in 4 days and turn the crop around. I am seeing enhanced growth and more pod set on my soybeans. In the fall I am using Monty’s Liquid Carbon on certain fields to help reduce compaction. I have some hillsides that compact easily with hard rains.

Farmers generally have some budgeting concerns. I still use dry fertilizer, but Monty’s program has helped me cut dry fertilizer applications and reduce my input costs. I now spray when my crop needs it and have greatly reduced my dry fertilizer costs. I am also getting the same yield.
Monty’s provides me great cost savings.”

Ed Stanfield, Baltimore County Maryland Farmer, Watch the Video Testimonial
> Monty’s Agrihance-V on Tobacco
“I used a 1/2 gallon of Agrihance-V at lay-by. The tobacco was non-irrigated because the creeks and ponds all got so dry. The tobacco ended up being some of the biggest tobacco I had ever raised. The rains finally started coming late in the year but I believe the Agrihance helped the tobacco hold through the drought, and it helped it from going through stress until it finally got some rain.”
Scotty Wilmore, Farmer
> Monty’s Agrihance-V on beans
We then used Agrihance-V foliar. The leaves were twice the size of non treated. A whole lot healthier plant. There was a real noticeable difference just riding down the road.
Monty’s is real easy to use.
David Waldrop, Kentucky Farmer, Watch the Video Testimonial
> Monty’s Agrihance-V on tobacco
“I have promoted using Monty’s AgriHance-V on tobacco in our area. It has really helped the leaves grow bigger and thicker. Farmers have observed the plant has kept more leaves on the stalk. Our producers are pleased with the results.”
Josh Briggs, Tennessee Dealer, Watch the Video Testimonial
> Agrihance-V on corn
“I saw a very good boost and good crop response in comparison to others. I thought it gave the corn a better color and texture and his corn did as well as fields that weren’t under the same stressful conditions.”
Jim Stein, Certified Crop Specialist, | Watch the Video Testimonial
>Agrihance-V on corn.
“On [corn] fields that we didn’t use Monty’s, they were in the mid to upper 90s on corn yield. On corn fields we used Monty’s, we were having 130 to 140 bushel yield. I can say that with no problem – fields right beside each other. Everything else was the same except for the Monty’s program.”
Ray Tucker, Kentucky Farmer, Watch the Video Testimonial
> Agrihance-V on wheat
I have used Monty’s Agrihance-V in the spring with my herbicide application on wheat. My wheat stays green after my first nitrogen application. I have healthier plants and a more uniform stand.
Ray Tucker, Kentucky Farmer
> Agrihance-V on corn
“We farm about 650 acres of corn, soybeans, wheat, and pasture. We use Agrihance-V at the V5 stage on our corn. The plants are greener, taller, and overall healthier Monty’s products mix well, are cleaner, and are better products. Monty’s has been a great return on our investment.”
Coley Rogers, farmer

Agrihance-R

Agrihance-R on soybeans
“Agrihance-R is for the reproductive stage of the plant. It is sprayed over the top just like everything else. You can also mix this product with Roundup. It can be mixed with nitrogen – whatever you are spraying, you can mix this product with it does not hurt anything. It’s a noticeable difference driving down the road — as far as looking at the size and structure of the plants.”
David Waldrop, Kentucky Farmer
Monty’s Liquid carbon and Agrihance-R
I farm 1200 acres of row crops including corn, soybeans, and wheat, along with burley tobacco near Paducah, Kentucky.
My first year I used Monty’s Liquid Carbon on my wheat with liquid nitrogen and saw a drastic reduction of leaf burn. I then used Monty’s Agrihance R foliar on the same wheat. The health of the wheat plants was better and I saw an 8 – 10 bushel increase in yield.
My second year I used Monty’s Agrihance R on all my corn and soybean acres and saw a 10 – 12 yield increase in corn, and a 5 -6 bushel increase in soybeans.
On some of my weaker soils it seems the Agrihance R helped roots go down deeper to where I have placed my anhydrous on corn.
I feel I have doubled my return on investment.
Jeremy Jordan Kentucky Farmer , Watch the Video Testimonial
>Agrihance-R on soybeans and corn
“It is easy to use – it is tank mix compatible with just about everything. It doesn’t cost that much more to put in the sprayer when you are going over the top of soybeans or corn with Roundup.”
Ray Tucker, Kentucky Farmer, Watch the Video Testimonial
> Agrihance-R on corn
I have been using Monty’s Agrihance-R on my wheat along with a fungicide. I am seeing a higher test weight and have had as much as a 30 to 40 bushel yield increase over fields not treated with Agrihance-R in a drought year.

Monty’s Liquid Carbon

> Monty’s Liquid Carbon on corn
“In 2012 we had a terrible drought. I had used 1 gallon of Monty’s Liquid Carbon preplant along with Monty’s Agrihance-V foliar and had 130 to 140 bushel corn and 56 bushels of soybeans. Fields of corn not treated were in the 90 bushel range. Monty’s Liquid Carbon helps crops better uptake nutrients.”
Ray Tucker, Kentucky Farmer, Watch the Video Testimonial
> Monty’s Liquid Carbon and Agr-Sweeet on corn wheat and soybeans
“I raise corn, wheat, and soybeans. I had a problem with my planter cutting through corn residue with these new stacked varieties. I used Monty’s Liquid Carbon at 2 quarts plus Agri-Sweet at 1 quart plus liquid nitrogen in the fall and the next year I had no planting problems. The residue was still there but it shattered when I planted through it. I used Monty’s Liquid Carbon in my pop up and saw improved stalk quality and my corn held up better in dry weather.”
Paul Talley, North Carolina Farmer, Watch the Video Testimonial.
> Monty’s on Tobacco < “Using Monty’s has gained us about 200-300 pounds per acre; last season my son used it and raised 3,400 pounds and the plot right next to it only raised 2,900 without Monty’s.”
Andy Newton, Farmer
> Monty’s Liquid Carbon on wheat “We started back in the spring using Monty’s Liquid Carbon with liquid nitrogen application on wheat. We were putting out between 85-90 lbs of 32% nitrogen. We added 1 quart of carbon with it. We didn’t see any burn to the wheat what so ever. The wheat crop wasn’t stressed by putting Nitrogen on it this past year. That had to help. That was the biggest thing I was trying to get away from was burning the wheat.”
Monty’s Liquid Carbon “The Monty’s Liquid Carbon gave my crops exactly what they needed, eliminating the need to use an aerator regularly to keep the fields producing,” said Herfurth. In fact, I’ve sold the aerator and just use the carbon, saving me fuel, equipment expenses and increasing my yields.”
Charlie Herfurth, Farmer
>Monty’s Liquid Carbon on corn, beans, and hay
“I farm 400 to 600 acres of corn, soybeans, and a little hay. I use Monty’s Liquid Carbon with my post herbicide applications. It is easy to use, no special trips across the field and so versatile. We have had prolonged periods of heat and no rainfall. When I spray Monty’s foliar, the crop bounces back quicker when it does rain.”
Grant Melton, Kentucky Farmer
> Monty’s Liquid Carbon on wheat
” I used Monty’s Liquid Carbon in UAN on my wheat. I used 85 lbs of Nitrogen in 32%. I used 1 quart of Liquid Carbon and saw no burn. The wheat crop was not stressed and anything you can do to keep from damaging the growth cycle has to help. I made 90 bushels per acre. Anything you can do without stressing, burning, or retarding the growth is a plus and I think Monty’s Liquid Carbon did that.”
Gene Hunter, North Carolina Farmer
> Monty’s liquid Carbon on Soybeans
I farm 500 acres of corn, soybeans, and hay in Shelby County, Kentucky which is near to Louisville.
My first experience was in a dry year on farm land that had not been farmed for years. Monty’s helped in that long period of dry weather and excessive heat. When the rain came my crops bounced back.Their products are so easy to use and I can spray any crop at any stage. I even put Agrihance R in with my Roundup when I clean up any missed weeds in the field.
I still use dry fertilizer but have cut the amount back and am spiking my crops with Monty’s as a foliar application when the crops need it. If you will try Monty’s you will see results.

> Monty’s Liquid Carbon on alfalfa
“We do a lot of research on new products. We had an old field that was a former dairy lagoon. It was also turned into a fill site by using all kinds of construction waste. It was so bad that prior to 2011 we could only get about 40 bushel of corn and 10 – 15 bushels of beans. It was a terrible field. pH was off, nutrients tied up, etc. In 2012 we used Monty’s Liquid Carbon with a starter followed by a post application of Liquid Carbon. A huge difference in ear size and grain.”

Monty’s Liquid Carbon “I have used the carbon product and have seen extended root growth and better tillering. Works well on wheat, applied at planting and at herbicide application early spring.”
Jay Simmons, Farmer
>Monty’s Liquid Carbon
We began using Monty’s in 2010. We sprayed foliar and saw less stress in heat periods. Their products are easy to apply and give a good return on investment.
Adrian Certain, North Carolina Farmer
Monty’s Liquid Carbon on row crops and patures
I farm in North Central Maryland and in South Central Pennsylvania. I have 8000 acres of corn, wheat, soybeans, and barley, as well as 600 head of beef cattle.
I buy from The Mill which is my local fertilizer dealer and have been using Monty’s for the past 5 years. I use Monty’s Liquid Carbon in the row. I am very pleased with increased production and how my crops look. I have seen increased bushels, more drought tolerance, and better root development.
Monty’s Liquid Carbon has been a good investment. It really helps on lower producing soils and lower organic matter soils. It helps loosen soil. I have noticed the roots branch out more, are more vigorous, and penetrate the soil deeper.
I have seen a 10 to 15 bushel increase in corn yields. I would recommend Monty’s to everyone.
Zach Rose Norther Maryland Farmer, | Watch the Video Testimonial
>Monty’s Liquid Carbon on residue
“3500 acres, we used Monty’s Liquid Carbon (on our 3500 acres) last fall to decompose our corn stalks. We sprayed 10 gallon of nitrogen and 2-quarts of MLC. Huge difference in the decomposition of the corn stalks.”
Jay Arnst, Pennsylvania Farmer
“I am sold on the Liquid Carbon product – it works very well. I noticed a difference in the tilth of the soil. It helps when no-till planting. The larger root system helps get the most out of the fertilizer I applied.”
Deweey Gilliam, Farmer
> Monty’s Liquid Carbon and 2-15-15 on corn, milo, wheat, and soybeans
“I farm 3500 acres of white corn, milo, a little bit of wheat, and soybeans. On corn I used Monty’s 2-15-15 at planting in the row with good results and Monty’s Liquid Carbon in combination with anhydrous. I feel the Liquid Carbon stabilizes the nitrogen and does not kill my soil bacteria. My wheat is greener, better root structure, a more even stand, and a higher test weight. I like the low salt content.”
Christian Carg, Illinois Farmer, Watch the Video Testimonial
> Monty’s Liquid Carbon on corn < “We could tell a huge difference in the treated and untreated area of that field the first year. We repeated the test the second year and were absolutely blown away. The corn was almost twice as tall and the yield was over 50 bushels more where we applied Monty’s Carbon for just two years.”
Ben Hushon, The Mill, Watch the Video Testimonial
> Monty’s on Tobacco < “I tried Monty’s products for the first time during the worst drought in 2012. As part of my program, I used 30 pounds of Dri-Carbon blended with my tobacco fertilizer prior to set­ting. I then used 1 gallon of Monty’s Liquid Carbon plus 1 quart of 8-16-8 in my setter barrel. I then applied 2 quarts of Monty’s Agrihance-V between setting and lay-by and another 2 quarts at lay-by without sufficient rainfall. My tobacco was still suffering from the dry weather, but after receiving six-tenths of an inch of rainfall, I have never seen tobacco respond so quickly in my 30 years of growing tobacco. My to­bacco grew out beyond my expectations and was a very even stand across my 40 acres of tobacco. I would recommend farmers try Monty’s products on their farm. At the end of the 2012 drought season we realized a 550 pound aver­age increase per acre in weight with the help of Monty’s products.”
I use Monty’s Liquid Carbon more than anything else. It really works. I would recommend Monty’s products to any farmer on any field in any conditions. Liquid Carbon helps aerate the soil and helps in compaction areas. Until you try it on your farm, you are not going to know the benefits.
Ray Tucker, Kentucky Farmer
>Monty’s Liquid Carbon for soil compaction
I started using ½ gallon Monty’s Liquid Carbon in the fall and have not looked back since. It loosened the soil and we saw more earthworms in the soil
Our soil compaction has gone down. Water doesn’t stand in the fields like it use to. I would highly recommend Monty’s 8-16-8 and Liquid Carbon. Crops are just greener. I am well pleased with Monty’s products for our investment.
Charlie Herforth, North Carolina Farmer
“My fall treated plants are 6-12” taller than my untreated fields. Anytime you are running your sprayer across your fields for any reason, add Monty’s to the mix. It is definitely worth it.”
Darwin Ott, Farmer
> Monty’s on Tobacco < “ After taking my tobacco crop to the buying station, I got a good grade on all of it. We’re glad we switched over. Last year we used 20-20-20 in the setter barrel, but this season with Monty’s it took off beter and did better all year.”
William Reffitt, Farmer
> Monty’s Liquid Carbon on wheat < We have used 2 qts of Monty’s Liquid Carbon on every acre of wheat sprayed in Carroll and Baltimore counties. We are getting 70 to 100 bushels of wheat. Farmers are getting better root development and the wheat is not going down.

Montys Liquid Carbon on corn and beans I farm in North Dakota and raise corn and soybeans. I use ½ gallon Monty’s Liquid Carbon per acre with my starter fertilizer at the rate of 6 gallons per acre. I put this mixture in the row on the seed. Monty’s Liquid Carbon mixes great and is so simple to use. It makes my nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium more available. The Monty’s Liquid Carbon just “jump starts” my crops.
> Montys Liquid Carbon on corn < We farm about 650 acres of corn, soybeans, wheat, and pasture. We use Monty’s Liquid Carbon on our corn to reduce compaction and breakdown residue. It has given us higher yields and better soil health. Monty’s products mix well, are cleaner, and are better products. Monty’s has been a great return on our investment.

Sprayed MLC on wheat in the fall (on 3500 acres). Probably had the best tillering we have ever had. Unbelieveable tillering we have had and that has never happened.”

Monty’s Liquid Carbon for Hay and Pastures

> Monty’s Liquid Carbon on pastures
“I am happy as a lark. After grazing on Monty’s treated pasture, his cows were a solid 5 and sold at auction for the highest price ever received through that sale barn. Monty’s increased my profitability substantially. That’s money straight to my bottom line.”
Terry Templin, Alabama Farmer
> Monty’s Liquid Carbon on pastures
“I produce 1500-2000 rolls of hay per year. I try to produce a product that not only weigh-up, but will be nutritious. My goal is to produce hay with 14% crude protein and a digestibility near 70%. By using Monty’s treated forage, I am meeting my goals. I didn’t have to supplement my feed to keep my cows in top form. To fertilize with granular fertilizer it would cost me much more per acre per cutting. With Monty’s, I can bring it in for a lot less cost!”
George Tutchings, Texas Farmer

Monty’s Liquid Humic

Monty’s Liquid Humic “We have been using Monty’s Liquid Humic predominately on wheat, but also on soybeans. We have a large amount of wheat acres in our area and are broadcasting liquid 32 over the top of wheat. We were getting severe burn on wheat when spraying herbicides and also 32% the same time. The very first year we used it we used it on a few acres – and it did really well. We have seen no burn on wheat from applying this product with herbicide and 32 at the same time. We don’t have any problems mixing with herbicide or liquid fertilizer. Used it on several thousand acres and we have seen excellent results in plant health, extra increase in bushels, and an excellent return on investment. On wheat alone we are spending around $14-15/acre and getting approximately $84 return.”
> Monty’s Liquid Humic
“We have been using Montys for about three or four years now and have seen really good results. We also use Monty’s with the chisel plow with a side kick with the anhydrous. We noticed it’s as good, or probably better, than other products because you are not just stabilizing your nitrogen, but also getting the extra benefit by not killing the bacteria in your soil. The results with ours is that its greener and a better root structure and a little higher test weight. We also like the very low salt content because it’s non-corrosive to my equipment.”
Christian Carg, Illinois Farmer, Watch the Video Testimonial
> Monty’s Liquid Humic on wheat and beans
“We use Monty’s Liquid Humic primarily on wheat and some on soybeans. We typically broadcast liquid 32% nitrogen on our wheat, causing severe burn. In adding Monty’s Liquid Humic to either straight 32% or 32% with chemicals, we see no burn. There is an increase in bushels.
It is easy to handle and mixes with liquid fertilizer or any chemical. Farmers spend around $14.00 per acre and some have seen a return of $84.00 per acre.

Dale Brookins Area Manager, for Southern FS , Watch the Video Testimonial
> Monty’s Liquid Humic on wheat
“We have used Monty’s Liquid Humic on wheat in our area. We have eliminated the burn when we mixed Monty’s with our 28%. Farmers comments Monty’s Liquid Humic have been that they have seen a yield bump and healthier wheat plants. We have used Monty’s Liquid Humic on corn with our burndown and herbicides. We have had no mixing problems. Their service is second to none and good communications.”

> Monty’s Hay-Now on alfalfa/grass hay
“I have been using Monty’s plant food for my alfalfa/grass hay for the past 2 yrs. I started using Hay Now this year. With the drought here in southwest Michigan this year, my hay has done tremendous. I’m now going to get a 5th cutting here weather dependent. I keep bale data from year to year and have increased production each year. I have another hay farmer who keeps asking me how I get so many cuttings. Monty’s!!!!!! He sees the results.”

David Kroa, Michigan Farmer

“Our customers have seen better quality forage with higher protein values. The Hay-Now program produces more tonnage and higher quality forage than fields without the Monty’s program. All of which contribute to a great return on investment to winterize this fall,”

Chris Weaver, Agronomist with The Mill

“We applied Monty’s (Hay-Now program) to our 5 acre hay field and within 2 weeks saw a real noticeable increase. First cutting we added granular fertilizer, then 2 quarts Hay-Now. The second cutting was five weeks later… we saw 14 more bales than the first cutting. First cutting we used granular fertilizer, and the grass was about 5” tall. We applied 2 quarts per acre of Hay-Now prior to the second cutting. Two weeks later the grass was knee deep… 18-19” tall. Everyone loves it. It works as a supplement to any fertility program… 1 quart of MLC and 2 quarts of Hay-Now… weed and feed your field while also buffering the burn.”

Jeff Hardegree, Georgia Dealer

“It is nutrient-dense. They don’t need a lot of supplements. They’ve gotten everything they need from the hay.”

 

Woody Long, Farmer Simpsonville, Kentucky

“To get and keep a heavy stand of grass or hay, you’ve got to have a good annual management program. Winterizing your hay and pasture fields this fall will provide season-long benefits – it is as easy as 2 quarts of Hay-Now and 1 quart of MLC.”
 

Bernie Lickteig, Monty's Regional Manager
> Monty’s Hay-Now on alfalfa/grass hay
“We have a 5-year-old stand of alfalfa that has been quite productive for its age, but we wanted to see what a little foliar nutrition would do for it after a cutting. We took the second cutting and soon after flew on Hay-Now at 1 quart to the acre — after which we got a 1/2″ rain the next day. You could immediately tell there was a nice green-up and the alfalfa seemed to regrow more vigorously after the application. This year was the first time we have taken a 4th cutting off of this field and are still going to get some grazing out of it this fall. The Hay-Now definitely gave a boost to that field and we plan on utilizing it more on our other forages in the coming years as well.”
Nate Belcher, Eastern Nebraska Farmer

“The application of Monty’s products has proven results in our market, and the application of Hay-Now and MLC this fall will definitely benefit your livestock. Your hay and pastures will have better growth, nutrient content, palatability, and protein —all the things you want in a quality forage. And faster re-growth.

 

John Downey, Pulaski Warehouse owner

“It was so dry in our fescue and rye field, we couldn’t get the soil sample probe into the ground. We applied Hay-Now and MLC together. Then 3-1/2 weeks later (still no rain), we could now easily push the probe into the ground! What else can it be!? We are now applying both on all 200 acres!”

Kenny Brown, Store Manager, Southern States South Carolina and Georgia

“In the spring, you see lush growth and leaves – that’s the root system releasing its stored nutrients into the growth. With multiple cuttings, plants get spindly, grow more slowly, and the nutrient quality isn’t as good after each cutting. That’s when you see fewer cuttings or cattle eating pasture down faster than it will grow. Grass is resting during the winter months, but you’re still dealing with challenges of keeping the root system.

 “When you winterize with MLC and Hay-Now, you’re contributing to soil health by revving up the soil biology as the plant goes into dormancy. MLC also speeds residue break down, improves moisture management, resolves compaction from weather or heavy grazing traffic, and enhances micronutrient uptake. In the spring, the soil is now getting more oxygen and the plant is getting more nutrients. Your fields will grow longer, grow back faster, and you may get more cuttings.”

Joe Dedman, Monty's Vice President of Agronomy

” I have thicker, taller grass then before. I turned the cows out June 1 and I normally would have had to rotate them a week ago, but there is still plenty of good grass for them to graze on.”

> Monty’s Dri-Carbon on pastures
“We can sell Monty’s Dri-Carbon with confidence. There is more soil activity – more life in the soil. The soil is more workable. It will raise organic matter – it shows on a soil test. For soybeans and corn it helps the roots spread out more and helps soil use the nutrients. It adds pounds to tobacco. And it adds leaf structure, quantity and size. Monty’s Dri-Carbon definitely works on pastures. They are green longer and more vibrant and they won’t dry down as fast. People who use it come back and ask for it the next year!”

> Monty’s Dri Carbon on pastures
I farm 2000 acres of corn, soybeans, wheat and alfalfa. I have 300 acres of corn raised for grain and silage.
I run 857 head of mama cows and they are my main priority. I am interested in the beef. I use Monty’s Dri Carbon blended in my dry fertilizer and have used it for 4 years and have been impressed with it.
It coats my dry fertilizer and I can see it on the prills. It is so easy to use.
I tried Dri Carbon on one field used for pasture. I treated one half with Dri Carbon and dry fertilizer and the one half with only dry fertilizer. On the side treated my pasture lasted three weeks longer in the fall.
I just see results wherever we have tried.”

Monty’s Liquid Carbon and Dri-Carbon

> Monty’s Liquid Carbon and Dri-Carbon on orchards
“We grow 75 acres of peach trees, 30 acres dwarf apple trees and also about 80-100 acres of row crops every year – and we put Monty’s [Dri-Carbon and MLC] on every single acre.

With peaches I have seen an increase in yields the first year I have used it. The size of our fruit is uniform across the trees. Most of our peaches are 2-3/4 — we are not getting too many small ones. We’re really happy with the products and I will continue to use the products.

Microhance

> Microhance on corn
“Microhance is an exceptional micronutrient package. We have used it in row and 2×2 in corn starters. It helps us to achieve that next level of yields that we are looking for in our corn crops. We will use one quart of Microhance on small grain when we do our head scrap to make sure we have a healthy plant up to harvest.”

> Microhance on beans
“Where we have seen Microhance shine is using it foliar on soybeans. We foliar feed soybeans with 2 quarts of Agrihance-V with one quart Microhance — and have seen 7 to 12 bushel yield increase in soybeans.”

Chris Weaver, Maryland Dealer
> Microhance on tobacco
“We recommend using Monty’s Microhance on our tobacco. It has a lot of micronutrients for plant health — we can see it in the field. Yields on our tobacco were very noticeable at harvest — we saw a very significant difference. I have seen results from Monty’s products. They just work. Competitors’ products just did not stand up, it was obvious. I believe Monty’s Microhance allowed our tobacco plants to better use the major nutrients.”

Monty’s Liquid Carbon for Soil Compaction

> Monty’s Dri-Carbon and soil compaction
“Where we have had a problem with soil compaction, and we have applied Monty’s Liquid Carbon, we have seen a positive response in decreasing soil compaction. It does work. I have seen it work. It will help you if you’ve got compacted soil. Our growers see an excellent return on their investment with Monty’s products.”

Sludge Relief

> Monty’s Liquid Carbon and Sludge Relief
“(Monty’s Liquid Carbon and Sludge Relief) eliminated a lot of the problems we were having as far as the crusting issues, the break down of the manure and even the foaming that was happening. We were spending 10 hours a day trying to break that up and we don’t have to deal with that anymore. We live in a pretty heavily populated area. The odor management is another reason we use it. It took it right away right off the bat. We had no complaints so we are more than tickled with that!”

Nanoboost

> Nanoboost on weeds
“We’re in the middle of glyphosate-resistant marestail country and resistant giant ragweeds, common ragweeds, pigweeds and others are rapidly becoming just as prevalent. We introduced our farmers to Monty’s Nanoboost a few years ago as an aid in trying to get better control of marestail during post-emergent applications of glyphosate.

We’ve used 2 ounces per acre as our standard rate to try to get more herbicide into the weeds, especially the weeds of known-resistance and the weeds that are larger than the label guidelines call for.

Last year, we sold enough to cover over 18,000 post-applied acres and most everyone that used it is still using it. This is the first year we’ve sold much for burn-down applications and we’ve already sold enough to cover over 7,000 acres. It’s not a “silver bullet”, but we do see quicker results from the herbicide applications and have noticed a “deader dead”, if that’s appropriate terminology, where we’ve used it versus where we haven’t.

We’ve applied a good margin to this product. Farmer’s are not prone to continue to use a product at any cost if they’re not seeing results. I’m not aware of any of our farmers that have used Nanoboost that have decided not to use it again and most have told their neighbors about the product. I think that’s endorsement enough that the product works.

Paul Durham, Carrington Farm Supply of Georgetown, Ohio.

Nanoboost

Nanoboost is well worth the cost because it allows me to kill resistant weeds with roundup, and I don’t have to worry about hurting other peoples cotton with herbicides or 2-4-D drift. I also don’t have to worry about spray cutoff dates, and other issues with those chemicals.   This make the product cheaper in the long run.

Jacob Beard

“I have used Nanoboost when spraying for Round-Up resistant marestail. The performance that I have seen shows that it works better than where it wasn’t used. I would not spray soybeans that had Round-Up resistant marestail without using Nanoboost.”

Sulfur 15

> Sulfur 15 on corn
“I applied Sulfur 15 with my Liquid Nitrogen at pre-plant 2×2. We harvested the corn plots this week and had a consistent 2.5 bushel increase where we used it.”

Humi-Till Residue Management

> Humi-Till on corn
“We conducted field trials at FS Member locations last year and noticed at some of the locations there was quite a bit of difference with [Humi-Till]. The treated sites seemed to have advanced stalk degradation showing less pith and more visible lignin strands in the treated stalks. These stalks were drier and more brittle, while the untreated stalks had more moisture and were far less breakable. There was also slightly less soil compaction down 12” in UAN and UAN + [Humi-Till] areas of application.”
Steve Westrich, Crop Protection Services at Growmark
> Humi-Till on corn
“[Humi-Till] was applied last October to corn stubble in an 80 acre field – in three different strips (5, 10, and 15 acres). In May, my local farmer no-tilled into this same field. A month later the farmer contacted me to come and see the difference that the [Humi-Till] had made. While walking the field in the treated areas, I could kick the stalks and they would shatter. In the untreated area, the stalks were still rigid and more difficult to break apart.

The farmer reported he had always had an issue with the corn stalks making the chains jump off his planter. He was excited to tell me that didn’t happen in any of his [Humi-Till] treated areas. The farmer added that from what he saw in the [Humi-Till] treated area, there were additional benefits to all farmers – because the corn stalk shattered, there would be fewer issues with tractor and combine tires being punctured or damaged from the today’s tough residue. Before I left, the farmer also reported emergence was quicker in the areas treated with [Humi-Till] – especially where the planted soybean rows crossed the old corn rows.”

Jeff Plenty, Branch Manager/Certified Crop Specialist, Insight FS
> Humi-Till on corn
“I tried Humi-Till for the first time last fall on my corn stubble. This spring I saw the benefits they were talking about. My planter had no clogging issues. Humi-Till has made me a believer and I will definitely use it again this fall.”
Gil Tucker, Farmer
> Humi-Till on corn
“We split a cornfield into test areas and we were checking them every 30 days for three rainy months. Stalks were 8” at the time we started. The most dramatic thing we saw beginning at 30 days was that the treated corn stalks had more of a black appearance at the top. When we got hold of the stalk, the treated were much easier to snap off – deterioration had already started prior to the 30 day check. The internal stalk pith was more digested and canoed out – there was more fiber rotted away in the stalks in the treated test area. The stalks in the untreated area were still hard and there was minimal decomposition occurring.

Our observations were clear: the benefits to our farmers using Humi-Till far outweigh the cost for next seasons yield. We sold the world out of it last year – even though it was a new product. We expect to sell a whole lot more this year!”

Dave Hill, Southern States Dealer

Humihance

“This spring I used SSC Tobacco Fertilizer w/Humihance. I also used a competitor’s Tobacco Fertilizer. These products were used in the same field side by side. It was like I had applied fertilizer and not applied fertilizer; where I had used the competitor’s product I had to go back and apply additional fertilizer trying to get it going. I think the Humihance just made the fertilizer work better.”

John Isley, Farmer Reidsville N.C.

“This spring I used SSC Turf Fertilizer w/Iron plus Humihance on my own lawn. I also used a competitor’s Turf Fertilizer w/Iron that I had been using, and was cheaper in price. I found the SSC Turf Fertilizer plus Humihance was worth the money. These products were used in the same lawn side by side; it was night and day difference. I now plan on using SSC Turf Fertilizers on my customer’s lawns.”

Floyd Moore, Landscaper Summerfield, N.C.

“I have been in the landscaping business for years and applied tons of fertilizer. However I have never used a fertilizer that I though worked as well as SSC Turf Fertilizer w/Iron plus Humihance. I found out about this product by attending a Landscaping Meeting that Mr. King was holding at our Statesville SSC Store. He said it was a premium product without a premium price and I would get premium results… and I did. Even my wife noticed how the turf was thicker with a great blue/green color. I am now using this product on my customer’s lawns.”
