Alfalfa: AGGRAND 4-3-3 Increases Yields and Profits
Why should you use AGGRAND™ Liquid Natural Fertilizer 4-3-3? To improve your bottom line.
Dealer John Gore, Bedford, Ind., saw an increase in the number of bales of hay this past summer that raised his income by nearly $3,000. Gore bales and sells his hay to local farmers.
“Producing large quantities of high quality hay can often be difficult, but I’m convinced that the addition of AGGRAND™ Liquid Natural Fertilizer 4-3-3 has made it much more profitable,” Gore said. “Plus the improved plant health, stronger roots, and better drought tolerance when moisture is an issue all add up to a long list of reasons to use more AGGRAND.”
In late summer, Gore cut an 11-acre field of alfalfa and grass mixture – a field that in the past has produced 400 to 500 50-pound bales. “I knew it was going to be good but I was thrilled when it made 979 bales,” he said.
Although the season brought plenty of rainfall, Gore said past experience convinces him commercial fertilizer couldn’t come close to that kind of production.
Gore was especially happy when he did the math on his increased hay yield. He charges $6 per bale. “After using AGGRAND on just this one cutting I produced more than 23,950 pounds more hay,” Gore said. “That means I’ll earn an extra $2,874. When you figure that the cost of the AGGRAND was much less than the commercial fertilizer which is more than $100 an acre in our area, along with the increased production, it is certainly a winning program.”

Gore followed directions from AGGRAND literature that will help his production remain high for next year. “I applied AGGRAND 4-3-3 about 10 days after the last cutting at the rate of one-and-a-half gallons of 4-3-3 in 20 gallons of water per acre using large flood type nozzles,” he said.
Gore plans to use AGGRAND on more of his fields next year to continue to increase his yields and his profits.
AGGRAND natural fertilizers not only cost significantly less than chemical fertilizers, they improve soil conditions by providing necessary nutrients that cause organisms and microorganisms to re-establish themselves and greatly increase their numbers, accelerating the natural process that increases fertility, nutrient availability and water-holding capacity in the soil. AGGRAND natural fertilizers bear the USDA Organic Seal, which signifies the products meet USDA-NOP (National Organic Program) approval for organic crop production.
