Maximize nitrogen efficiency, uptake and profitability

Spring rain can dramatically increase nitrogen loss through leaching by pushing nitrogen lower into the soil profile.

Instinct® and N‑Serve® nitrogen stabilizers reduce leaching and extend nitrogen availability in the soil for up to eight weeks. By lengthening the time nitrogen is in the soil, Instinct and N‑Serve can help your customers achieve an average revenue increase of $21 per acre.*

In most cases, these two products extend nitrogen availability six to eight weeks during critical growth points in a corn plant’s development.

In addition to the yield and economic benefits of using Instinct or N‑Serve, there are also important environmental advantages of keeping nitrogen in the soil and out of waterways. Field trials show that the active ingredient in Instinct and N‑Serve effectively increase soil nitrogen retention by 28 percent while decreasing leaching into groundwater by more than 16 percent.**

N‑Serve has been used with confidence to maximize anhydrous ammonia applications for more than 40 years. Instinct, introduced in 2007, provides growers with a versatile alternative by effectively stabilizing other forms of nitrogen, including urea, UAN and liquid manure.
