V6 Ag was founded in 2011 and incorporated in 2012. We often get asked: “What does V6 mean?” No, it’s not engine-related! V6 is a critical growth stage of corn where the roots are established and the growing point is above ground. If the plant’s roots don’t have the nutrients needed at V6, maximum plant growth, health, and yield won’t be achieved. For us, V6 is the “prove it or perish” vegetative growth stage, and we wanted to prove it. Hence, V6 Agronomy!
After years spent developing crop nutrient programs for forward thinking growers, it became clear that traditional bulk blended formulas were not maximizing crop yields, managing input pricing and most of all – improving soil health. Nutrient segregation, product solubility and seed safety were problems that needed to be addressed. V6 Ag was created and began to develop and supply a line of products that offer increased efficiency and improved sustainability.
This led us to focus on precision compound fertilizer technology, that led to the creation of our flagship starter product ELEVEN Superstart™ in 2017.
