“It protects nitrogen three ways. From the leaching, the denitrification, and from the volatilization above ground and below ground. So, when we’re spreading in-season, we don’t necessarily need a rain to wash it in because it’ll sit out for a little bit until we do get that rain to wash the product into the ground.” – Davin Harms, MFA Precision Account Sales Manager
This one might seem like a no-brainer, but it’s very important to understand how nitrogen is lost and how to protect your investment in the field. Nitrogen loss and its causes can vary from soil to soil. The three primary forms of nitrogen loss are ammonia volatilization, nitrate leaching and denitrification. SUPERU is the only proven granular fertilizer that incorporates both urease and nitrification inhibitors to provide protection against all three forms of nitrogen loss.
“The most expensive nitrogen you put out there is the one that doesn’t get used or gets lost.” – Eric Preston, MFA Precision Account Sales Manager
BROADCAST SUPERU VS. UNTREATED UREA
1Spring broadcasting of SUPERU fertilizer resulted in an average yield increase of 13 percent over spring broadcasting of untreated urea.
“The weatherman might be calling for rain in a couple of hours, but that doesn’t always happen. And it’s not always across everywhere that you spread. SUPERU ensures the nitrogen you spent money on is out there in the field as opposed to being in the atmosphere.” – Davin Harms, MFA Precision Account Sales Manager
Good land stewardship is more than a goal, it’s something that is expected from today’s farmers. While there are many aspects of being a good steward to your land, managing the nitrogen you apply and mitigating how much nitrate is lost to the environment are important pieces of the puzzle. With above- and below-ground protection, SUPERU enhances your nitrogen efficiency and minimizes potential nitrogen loss to nearby water sources.
