Trial after trial, we lead the industry.

While companies focus on getting their salt-based starter fertilizers off the seed because of poor germination and yield loss, we are placing ours directly on the seed to enhance germination, establish more uniform stands, accelerate plant growth and root development, and increase yields.

Composition of starter fertilizers

Delivering hydrogen and oxygen.

Most traditional starter fertilizers consist of NH3 and P2O5. While some have credited nitrogen and phosphorus molecules for improving emergence, we believe it’s hydrogen and oxygen that actually bring results. CarbonWorks RSTC 17 captures the natural benefit of these two nutrients, delivering nearly perfect germination with faster and more uniform emergence.

Salt - It's ruining your germ.

Studies show that starter fertilizers such as 10-34-0 are most effective when they are placed off and away from the seed. This is because they are salts, the enemy of germination. Ironically, improving germination and emergence is what starters are supposed to do!

Unlike these starters, CarbonWorks RSTC17 is NOT a salt and achieves optimal results when placed directly on the seed. Like a true starter should, CarbonWorks RSTC17 improves germination and emergence.

Powered by carbon.

Because carbon lacks a specific ionic charge, we use it to deliver nutrients to your plants. Unlike commercial fertilizers, carbon does not revert to a salt. This makes it beneficial for seeds, plants, and microorganisms.

Eliminating toxins in the soil

Eliminating Toxins.
Unlocking Nutrients.

CarbonWorks RSTC 17 unlocks nutrients that are tied up in the soil. How? By eliminating the heavy metals, salts, and other toxic chemicals that commercial fertilizers leave behind.

Building more productive soil.

Carbon is food for the microbes living in soil. Since CarbonWorks RSTC 17 is rich in carbon, it significantly increases microbial activity along with nutrient- and water-holding capacity. Using CarbonWorks RSTC 17, you will see bigger yields while reducing the amount of commercial fertilizers you need to apply.

Building healthier soil

Easy to use.

We recommend applying 32 oz/ac of CarbonWorks RSTC 17 with a minimum of 5 gal/ac of water in-furrow at planting. And because CarbonWorks RSTC 17 is a salt-free starter, you should place it right on the seed!
