• N-Lock is for farmers who want to keep nitrogen available in the root zone for longer and optimise their yield
• N-Lock ensures the efficient use of nitrogen in cereals, oilseed rape and maize giving higher income and lower nitrogen losses
• Recent farmer trials have shown average yield increases of +9% in maize and +4.7% in winter wheat
• N-Lock can be used through existing farm sprayers, or added to slurries
N-Lock helps keep nitrogen in the ammonium (NH4+) form for a longer period of time by inhibiting the bacteria that convert ammonium to nitrite (NO2-). As ammonium is positively charged it is attracted to the negatively charged soil particles, and hence 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 the roots of the crop. Therefore N-Lock keeps more nitrogen in the rooting zone for longer, which means that crops can optimise their yield potential.
