Understanding Urease Inhibitors
Urease inhibitors are designed to minimize volatilization loss from applied nitrogen sources, like UAN or urea, that are applied to the soil surface or close to the soil surface. If applied nitrogen is lying on the soil surface or unincorporated, the urease enzyme breaks the urea molecule into ammonia gas, which is a process called urea hydrolysis. ANVOL® urease inhibitor or SUPERU® premium fertilizer offer above-ground protection from volatilization losses.
Take a deeper dive into urease inhibitors to understand the key components of nitrogen loss and the value of protecting your applied nitrogen.
