The Select Products
During fertilizer application, a precision coat of liquefied technical product is applied to every angle of each fertilizer particle blended during the AccuBlend™process. While every Howard mix is an AccuBlend™mix, only a select group of technical ingredients can beinfused utilizing our ProFusion™ technology:

  • Ronstar (pre-emergent herbicide)
  • Bifenthrin (multi-purpose insecticide)
  • Pendimethalin (pre-emergent herbicide)
  • Dimension (pre-emergent herbicide)
  • LockUp (herbicide) 

Our Pinpoint Accuracy
With Howard ProFusion™, we are able to accurately meter and apply liquefied technical products in a controlled environment to our AccuBlend™ fertilizer. This allows us to be extremely accurate and in control at the time of application.

  • Heat-Infused
  • Precise Even Coverage
  • Liquid application accurate within .01% of a gallon

Our No-Dust Plan
Howard ProFusion™ allows liquefied technical product to coat and dry evenly around each fertilizer particle. This ensures the technical product stays adhered to the particle during bagging and transport virtually eliminating any dust in the product.
