CENTURO™ nitrogen stabilizer from Koch Agronomic Services (KAS) is a next-generation nitrification inhibitor for anhydrous ammonia. Featuring a patented active ingredient, CENTURO offers highly effective below-ground nitrogen protection and unequaled flexibility in an easy-to-handle solution that is noncorrosive to the metal used with UAN and anhydrous ammonia.
When nitrogen loss due to leaching and denitrification impacts your anhydrous ammonia applied nitrogen fertilizer, you lose out on yield and return on investment. Research has shown that CENTURO outperforms untreated fall and spring applied anhydrous ammonia applications — delivering improved efficiency and better yields.
During the seven-year development phase, KAS researchers and developers formulated CENTURO to produce superior agronomic benefits for growers in an easier-to-use, flexible solution.
In the first two years of an ongoing study at Iowa State University, CENTURO reduced nitrate leaching by an average of 44 percent in fall-applied ammonia and 23 percent in spring-applied ammonia.1
CENTURO is 100 percent noncorrosive to the metals used in anhydrous ammonia and UAN equipment, making it easy-to-handle and gentle on equipment.
Because research shows that CENTURO is noncorrosive, stainless steel tanks will not be necessary for storage.
In third-party research studies conducted in Illinois, Missouri and Nebraska in 2016 and 2017, CENTURO improved nitrogen use efficiency in anhydrous ammonia by up to 25 percent.2
CENTURO will be able to remain in pumps over time without affecting their operation, and washing or rinsing equipment between use will not be necessary.
CENTURO provides excellent cold and hot weather stability, with no freeze protection required and no salting out or crystal formation as long as temperatures remain above -9°F (-23°C).
With the ability to be added before, during or after NH3, and through the use of a side kick, CENTURO delivers the flexibility you need to run your operation with maximum efficiency.
Over it's seven year development phase, KAS worked directly with land-grant universities across the Midwest to prove the efficacy and reliability of CENTURO. We are excited to share the promising research results of these studies.

In eight replicated trials conducted across four site locations in Illinois, Missouri and Nebraska, CENTURO increased corn yield by an average of 8 bushels per acre with fall-applied ammonia and by 7 bushels per acre with spring-applied ammonia compared to untreated ammonia.
