|Liquid Fertilizer |
The Lowe location for the Garden City Co-op is the primary storage and blending facility for all other locations as well as for customer delivery. With 2,500+ tons of storage, we strive to meet the needs of our customers when the demand arises. We have in stock 28% & 32% UAN liquid nitrogen, 10-34-0 liquid phosphate, water soluble 0-0-62 potash, 12-0-0-26 liquid sulfur, chelated zinc, and most other liquid micro-nutrient products.
Off site storage is also utilized to insure supplies of liquid fertilizer are available during the busy seasonal runs that occur. We are also fortunate to be located within a couple hundred miles of two or three major manufacturers of UAN liquid nitrogen. We also take advantage of rail delivery of phosphoric acid to be able to react our own 10-34-0 phosphate fertilizer on site.
Two late model spray rigs are available for custom application of both liquid fertilizer and chemicals and service the entire Garden City Co-op trade area. Currently, both units are stationed at and dispatched through the Lowe location. In addition, there is a liquid fertilizer coulter application toolbar available for rent to customers to apply their liquid fertilizer with their own tractor. A dual liquid/ammonia application rig is also available to rent to apply liquid and ammonia together with the customer's own tractor.
The Garden City Co-op owns and maintains a fleet of liquid tender trucks, both tandem straight trucks and semi's, to be able to deliver liquid fertilizer to our customers on a timely basis. These units not only deliver direct to customers, they also service our spray rig units and our toolbar units.
