APEX® LINE OF NURSERY FERTILIZERS.
Nurseries require a variety of unique formulations to meet their specific growing needs. You need long-lasting, controlled-release fertilizers that reduce labor costs and offer the ultimate level of application safety. With APEX® fertilizers, you get what you need in plant nutrients and nutrition throughout the entire growing season in any growing condition. Running a nursery operation can be unpredictable, your fertilizer shouldn’t be.
The APEX® line of fertilizers feature application specific formulations that incorporate GAL-XE ONE controlled-release technology. The coating process of GAL-Xe ONE enables consistent, predictable nutrient delivery for up to 18 months, and APEX® fertilizers eliminate the need for top dressing on most plants. APEX® delivers plant nutrients through a solute concentration gradient permeation process that is unaffected by soil moisture, microbial activity, and pH levels which makes it more consistent and reliable.
The J.R. Simplot Company was started by an energetic entrepreneur in 1929, and grew from a one-man farming operation into a food and agribusiness empire. The Company’s vertical integration – seed production, farming, fertilizer manufacturing, frozen-food processing, and food brands and distribution – has nurtured a diverse array of internal talents and resources, creating a symbiosis that few other organizations achieve. Our phosphate reserves and large land holdings are a storehouse of valuable physical resources that embody the company’s solid financial base.
The pillars of our organization – Passion for People, Spirit of Innovation, and Respect for Resources – are as relevant now as they were when young Jack Simplot began his long journey toward remarkable success. He was an innovator from the start, but our founder’s accomplishments accelerated after creating the first
commercially-viable frozen french fries in the 1940s. That momentum continues today, with technology
improvements that are revolutionizing plant research and food production. The company has invested significant resources to ensure that our operations are sustainable and environmentally friendly. J.R. always understood that most resources are finite. Our goal as a company has been to be the finest
stewards possible of the air, water, land, and other resources on which we all rely.
