NITROGEN LOSSES BY VOLATILIZAZION
The volatilization of nitrogenous fertilizers corresponds to the higher losses of this nutrient in the soil-plant system (losses up to 70%). (Cabezas 1997)
VOLATILIZATION OF NH3 WITH LOSS OF N-UREA TO THE ATMOSPHERE.
When N-urea is applied to soil it is rapidly transformed through the activity of the enzyme urease into ammonia, carbon dioxide and water. (Amberguer 1996)
CUMULATIVE LOSSES OF NH3 - % N OF N-APPLIED
FACTORS THAT INTERFERE WITH THE VOLATILIZATION OF N-UREA
HOW DOES UREMAX NBPT® ACTS
UREMAX-NBPT® is a chemical solution that incorporates the NBPT molecule in its formulation to be applied on urea in order to reduce nitrogen losses by volatilization through competitive reversible inhibition, extending the availability of nitrogen for a longer period and, consequently, there is a delay of N peak, greater absorption by the plant and higher productivity. .
ü Application at room temperature.
ü Can be applied to single element or NPK formulation.
ü Reduces de cost of nitrogen point for farmers.
ü Reduces losses by volatilization.
ü Productivity improvement (kg/há) with higher absorption of N.
ü Does not change the percentage of N.
ü Reduces the leaves burn by ammonia salts.
ü Adds value to urea.
ü Reduces seed damage when urea is applied close to it.
ü Does not change the hardness of urea granules.
ü Facilitates nitrogen management by the farmer, application to soil surface at the recommended time.
