When liquid won’t; Nitram will
With many UK farmers making the switch back to a solid fertiliser, such as Nitram, it's easy to see why Nitram supports successful yields, offers a secured performance and enables simple application. Find out how here:
Numerous independent industry trials have proven that AN-based fertilisers, like Nitram, increase yields compared to liquid UAN.
The loss of yield from liquid is not fully understood but is believed to be due to the loss of ammonia to the atmosphere and scorch.
The UK Government is growing increasingly concerned about ammonia losses from agriculture and is prepared to take action. Evidence from Defra’s new ‘Clean Air Strategy’ document indicates that many urea-based fertilisers may have to include inhibitors to address these ammonia losses to air.
AN-based fertiliser, like Nitram, have the lowest losses of any Nitrogen source.
Are you convinced that visible scorch really doesn't matter?
The science says otherwise, and many farmers are questioning how this impacts within the overall crop nutrition and protection plan. Independent trials confirm yield losses are likely.
Liquid fertiliser application can increase risk of soil compaction due to travelling across fields with large volumes of liquid application equipment (often in excess of 25t of combined weight). It also ties up valuable machinery as you can’t apply liquid fertiliser and pesticides at the same time, which is crucial during a tight weather window.
