Protect Your Nitrogen Investment

Nitrogen loss through ammonia volatilization can be a serious problem impacting yield potential and return on investment.

NITROGEN LOSS IS REAL

  • Research studies prove that nitrogen loss due to ammonia volatilization can be significant (up to 40%) when urea or UAN is not adequately incorporated.
  • “Adequate incorporation” means more than 0.5 inch of rain or irrigation or mechanical incorporation into the soil of more than 2 inches deep.
  • Volatilization takes place when the urease enzymes break the urea molecule into ammonia gas – which can be lost to the air. This occurs in both warm and cold temperatures.

Nitrogen loss due to volatilization can be a serious problem impacting yield potential and return on investment. AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabilizer is proven to control loss from ammonia volatilization, so more nitrogen is available for plant uptake.
