Cost-effective Urea inhibition
Alzon neo-N emerges as a cost-effective alternative for inhibiting urea.
Unlike traditional urease coating treatments, which may raise questions about application amounts and efficacy, Alzon neo-N provides a straightforward solution.
The integrated inhibitors work seamlessly, offering farmers a reliable and cost-efficient method for urea inhibition without the uncertainties associated with traditional coatings.
Beyond efficiency and cost-effectiveness, Alzon neo-N addresses environmental concerns associated with traditional fertilisation.
Scientifically proven to reduce nitrate losses by up to 50%, nearly eliminate ammonia losses (6.5 times reduction), and cut down N2O emissions by 75%, Alzon neo-N stands as a more sustainable choice for farmers aiming to minimise their environmental impact.
Challenges with traditional coatings
While urease coating treatments have been widely used, they come with their challenges.
Questions surrounding the appropriate application amount and the limited duration of effectiveness (seven to nine days depending on environmental conditions) raise practical concerns for farmers.
Additionally, the cost of coatings, such as the £40 per tonne premium associated with coatings post-application, adds financial considerations to the farming operation.
Traditional coatings face challenges related to shelf life and deterioration post-application, potentially compromising their effectiveness. Alzon neo-N, with its integrated inhibitors, mitigates these issues by ensuring prolonged effectiveness without relying on additional coatings.
Application rates and dates
|Alzon neo-N kg/ha
|In one application before or shortly after drilling
|In one application at the start of growing or 50-60% at the start of growing and 40-50% as a later application in the event of separate applications (two applications are recommended for quality wheat)
|In one application before or shortly after sowing or planting
|Approximately two weeks before drilling
