Improve crop performance and sustainability through better control of nitrogen
Corteva Nitrogen stabiliser products feature Optinyte™ technology and are sold under the N-Lock™ and Instinct™ brands.
Nitrogen stabilisers help to keep nitrogen in the ammonium (NH4+) form for longer by slowing down the bacteria that convert ammonium to nitrite (NO2-). As ammonium is positively charged it is attracted to the negatively charged soil particles and is not washed out of the rooting zone. Nitrite and nitrate (NO3-) however are negatively charged and can be easily washed down the soil profile, away from crop roots. Optinyte keeps more nitrogen in the rooting zone for longer, improving the yield potential of crops.
