AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabiliser has been shown in trials around the world to optimise cotton production and profitability.

Under double cropping situations and in depleted soils, AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabiliser protects urea so that more nitrogen is available to the crop.

In dryland cotton situations AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabiliser can increase flexibility of nitrogen application timing.

Cotton trials around the world have consistently shown AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabiliser reduces nitrogen loss and benefits crop performance. 

In the United States the University of Arkansas8 conducted field studies in 2009 and 2010 in a Memphis silt loam (fine-silty, mixed, active, thermic Typic Hapludalfs) soil.

The results showed that at 75% of the recommended application rate (94kg N/ha), urea treated with AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabiliser delivered crop performance equivalent to the plots fertilised at 100% application rate (125kg N/ha) with untreated urea.
