Koch Agronomic Services’ (KAS) next-generation nitrogen stabilizer, ANVOL™, demonstrated extended protection against nitrogen loss due to volatilization in recent research. While untreated urea lost 32 percent of its available nitrogen, urea treated with ANVOL lost just 12 percent.

Nitrogen loss can be a serious problem impacting yield potential and return on investment. Depending on the soil type, nitrogen fertilizer is susceptible to losing more than 50% of its nitrogen through ammonia volatilization, denitrification and nitrate leaching.
The goal in crop production with nitrogen is to ensure as much of it as possible is available for plant uptake, where it can then be converted to grain throughout the growing season. While we know nitrogen is important to our crops, do we know what role it plays and how to ensure it’s available for optimal crop growth and production?
According to the National Weather Service Climate Prediction Center, growers across the U.S. may start noticing the impacts of El Niño as we progress into the fall and winter seasons.
