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.
By keeping more nitrogen available for
plant uptake, research has shown CENTURO can improve yields as well.
Across a three-year study in Nebraska, Illinois and Missouri, fall-applied
CENTURO-treated ammonia increased corn yield by an average of 6 bu/A
compared to untreated fall-applied ammonia, and spring-applied CENTURO
treated ammonia increased corn yield by an average of 6 bu/A compared to
untreated spring-applied ammonia.
CENTURO is 100 percent noncorrosive to the metals used in anhydrous ammonia and UAN equipment, making it easy-to-handle and gentle on equipment.
CENTURO is noncorrosive to the metals used in anhydrous and UAN equipment and does not require stainless steel tank 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 can be stored for at least two years without degrading and will not freeze as long as temperatures remain above negative nine degrees Fahrenheit.
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 its seven year development phase, KAS worked directly with land-grant universities across the Midwest to prove the efficacy and reliability of CENTURO. These studies prove when you protect the nitrogen you apply, you maximize the nutrients available for crop uptake.
N rate for all bars is 70% recommended rate. Bars with same letter are not significantly different (p<0.10).The underlying data was provided by University of Nebraska, University of Missouri, and the Illinois Fertilizer and Chemical Association under a Research Trial Financial Support Agreement with Koch Agronomic Services, LLC, and neither the university nor the individual researchers referenced endorse or recommend any product or service.
In eight replicated trials conducted across four site locations in Illinois, Missouri and Nebraska, CENTURO increased corn yield by an average of 6 bushels per acre with fall-applied ammonia and by 6 bushels per acre with spring-applied ammonia compared to untreated ammonia.
