AGROTAIN® Nitrogen Stabilizer Controls Nitrogen Loss for Higher Yields
Understanding how AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabilizer works begins with understanding where nitrogen goes after application.
When urea or liquid nitrogen (UAN) is surface applied it is at risk of being lost into the air. The loss can occur through a process called ammonia volatilization. Volatilization occurs when urea comes in contact with moisture and urease, a naturally occurring enzyme in the soil, and crop residue that breaks down urea and releases it as ammonia into the air. On average 40% of your nitrogen can be lost within hours of application.
AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabilizer can be added to urea and liquid nitrogen (UAN) to create enhanced efficiency fertilizers that control surface loss by blocking the enzyme urease. AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabilizer is scientifically proven with more than a decade of yield and volatilization reseach.
AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabilizer fertilizers meet the criteria for enhanced efficiency fertilizers as defined by the Association of American Plant Food Control Officials (AAPFCO) and you can count on AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabilizer to keep nitrogen available when your plants need it most. Protect your nitrogen with the unsurpassed stability of AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabilizer.
AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabilizer works for any crop where urea or 28%, 30% or 32% liquid nitrogen (also known as UAN or Urea Ammonium Nitrate) fertilizers are used. The urease inhibitor will not work on other forms of nitrogen fertilizer.
