Mineral nitrogen fertilizers, depending on their chemical composition, have distinct impacts on yield and environment.
European farmers have been aware that nitrate based fertilizers are the most efficient and most reliable nitrogen source available. These products have also significantly lower environmental impact than urea-based products (urea, UAN) through better control of leaching, lower volatilization and a lower life cycle carbon footprint.
Nitrate-based fertilizers - such as ammonium nitrate, calcium ammonium nitrate and nitrate-based NPK compounds - are pure nutrients, offering the required precision, efficiency and reliability to meet the agronomic and environmental imperatives of modern agriculture. Nitrate-based fertilizers are the natural choice for farmers who care for both, yield and the environment.
