Two studies conducted in 2017 by the University of Missouri and the University of Tennessee, showed the yield benefit of corn when using SUPERU® fertilizer and AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabilizer compared to ContaiN.

SUPERU is a urea-based granular fertilizer containing active ingredients to protect against all three forms of nitrogen loss – volatilization, denitrification and leaching. 

AGROTAIN is the original, most-research proven urease inhibitor, which protects against ammonia volatilization. 

 

In the study conducted by the University of Missouri, eight inches of rain fell within two months after fertilizer application, creating conditions where protection against denitrification was needed. With proven active ingredients for both below- and above-ground protection, SUPERU outperformed ContaiN by 11 bushels per acre.


Warm temperatures and no rain for five days after fertilizer application during the University of Tennessee study made for ideal conditions for volatilization. With an AI load designed to protect against ammonia volatilization in a broader range of conditions, both AGROTAIN and SUPERU outperformed ContaiN by 17 and 15 bushels, respectively.
