Most farmers are aware that nitrogen in urea can be lost as ammonia through volatilisation – this is quite literally their fertiliser investment disappearing into thin air. Australian trial data indicates farmers who top dress with urea can lose up to 40% of their nitrogen fertiliser to the atmosphere through volatilisation. At retail prices of $500 a tonne for urea applied on-farm, volatilisation could result in losses of up to $200/t. AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabiliser protects surface-applied urea against ammonia volatilisation and can dramatically reduce losses of nitrogen to the atmosphere.Read more
