Powered by Albion Technology

The Metalosate® product range utilizes Albion amino acid chelate technology and delivers mineral nutrients faster and more efficiently where the plants need it the most. As a result, the farmer/grower gets healthier crops that are more resistant to disease and pests, larger yields, and healthier food for the consumer with an extended shelf life for products being shipped long distances.

Our Markets

Balchem Plant Nutrition’s Metalosate products are used to deliver the right mineral nutrients to a variety of plants, including field crops, vegetables, tree and vine crops, ornamental trees, organic and other plant species. The Metalosate product portfolio also provides solutions for the Organic market.

Plant Tissue Analysis – T.E.A.M.®

Balchem Plant Nutrition’s plant tissue analysis is an extremely helpful tool in determining the nutritional needs of plants. The analysis method utilizes a unique computer program called Technical Evaluation of Albion Minerals (T.E.A.M).

A complete plant tissue analysis report is generated along with recommendations for foliar application of nutrients to correct nutrient deficiencies or imbalances.
