Blue Bags Grow Better Crops

Nitram®

Nitram® 34.5% N is a highly reliable and consistent straight Nitrogen fertiliser, ideal for use on grassland and arable systems throughout the growing season. 

Nitram is the UK’s leading Ammonium Nitrate (AN) fertiliser brand, with 50 years (2015) of success, innovation and commitment to the British Farmer.

BROAD RECOMMENDATION FOR APPLICATIONS TO CROPS

APPLICATIONS:

For arable crops requiring efficient management, Nitram® provides a very predictable source of Nitrogen in terms of its availability to the crop.

For grassland situations Nitram® provides a predictable and highly responsive nitrogen source to support your nutrient management plan and growth targets.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Ammonium Nitrate is the most efficient and predictable form of Nitrogen for UK growers.  Government commissioned trials that compared alternate sources of Nitrogen, found on average AN only lost 3% as Ammonia to the atmosphere. Urea average losses were 24% and as high as 58% in certain circumstances.

Prilled for improved aerodynamics, Nitram® achieves an even spread pattern due to its consistency and even spreading qualities.

With Nitram® product density at 1,000kg/cubic metre and urea density at 750kg/cubic metre, any spreader hopper will contain the same kgs Nitrogen whether it contains Nitram or urea.

CARBON FOOTPRINT AND NUMBER FOR THE PRODUCT

At CF Fertilisers we are committed to improving carbon efficiency in our production processes.  All of our products have a carbon footprint, certified by the Carbon Trust in June 2012 and reviewed annually.

CF Fertilisers has promised to reduce the footprint of Nitrogen production, demonstrating an on-going commitment to carbon reduction.

The footprints for fertiliser products are given as kg CO2e per kg Nitrogen (N). Most fertiliser usage is considered on the basis of N requirement, so this allows the simplest comparison between our products for a given crop requirement.

The Carbon Footprint for Nitram® is 3.4 kg CO2e per kg Nitrogen (a reduction of 40% from the 2010 baseline).Carbon Footprint

 

CALIBRATION

CALIBRATE BEFORE YOU SPREAD FOR APPLICATION RATE AND SPREAD PATTERN

CF Fertilisers fertiliser products spread to 32m bout widths.  Widths of 36m are achievable with certain spreaders and products in suitable conditions, however, please seek advice.  It is important to maintain fertiliser spreaders, whatever bout width you work at.

For optimum results, CF Fertilisers recommends that you follow the industry standard and set up your spreader for both application rate and spread pattern for each different fertiliser that you use. Product Safety Data Sheets are available here.

APPLICATION CALCULATOR

READY RECKONER FOR APPLICATION RATES

Product application rate: kg/ha Nutrient application rate: N kg/h
145 50
220 76
290 100
435 150
580 200

Notes:

  • For cereals improve N efficiency by applying no more than 100kg N/ha in one dressing. 
  • For oilseed rape split N applications according to canopy management rules.
  • For rates over 80kg N/ha on grassland (for first cut silage), split the dressing equally with applications at least four weeks apart.
  • To convert from kg product/ha to bags/acre, multiply by 0.4, then divide by 50 (e.g. 250kg product/ha X 0.4 = 100 / 50 = 2 bags/acre)
  • To convert from kg nutrient/ha to units/acre, multiply by 0.8 (e.g. 200kg N/ha X 0.8 = 160 units N/acre) pattern due to its consistency and even spreading patterns.
