aNH3 we understand how important nitrogen is to your operation, that`s why for over two decades we have been building the most advanced nitrogen distribution systems in the world. For years our customers have told us that their aNH3 system is the heartbeat of their nitrogen management program and is an essential tool in achieving the accuracy and reliability they depend on. The face of agriculture has changed dramatically over the years, it no longer makes sense to simply `over-apply` nitrogen to the field hoping to eliminate nitrogen loss. Today the cost of nitrogen is high enough that most farmers can`t afford to waste it, and with excess nitrogen runoff becoming a significant threat to the environment, it makes sense to precisely apply nitrogen on every acre. Through the years these priorities have driven our development, its why our customers can feel confident they have the best anhydrous application system in the world.
In 1995 a small group of farmers in central Illinois set out to improve the efficiency and speed of anhydrous ammonia application on their farms. It was apparent to these men that when growing corn, NH3 was the second highest input cost after seed. In the mid 90's the standard (tube style) heat-exchanger was the only method of liquefaction and was prone to leaving uneven rows and streaking on the fields. The founders of aNH3 set out to achieve something unheard of at the time: to eliminate uneven distribution, increase application speed, while providing monitoring of each row.
While agriculture has changed exponentially over the last two decades, many application systems used today are based on technology used in the 1960's. Our engineers and technicians have devoted decades of effort in getting anhydrous delivery systems out of the 'stone age' by building products that bring accurate, reliable results to our customers. In over 20 years of business aNH3 has earned several US patents and continues to advance the way anhydrous ammonia is applied. We understand how important nitrogen is to our customers and want them to feel confident knowing that they have the most advanced control system in the industry.
Located in Elkhart, Illinois aNH3 is staffed by a diverse team of farmers, engineers and technicians, designing and building every aNH3 product here in the US.
Precision placement of Nitrogen is easier said than done; aNH3 systems are designed and built to get it done.
In the early 1990's the founders of aNH3 (being corn growers themselves) knew there had to be a better way to apply NH3 accurately. Understanding the problems associated with anhydrous application, they set out to build a product that would have several key advantages over other systems, it had to:
- Provide equal distribution among rows
- Allow monitoring of individual rows
- Maintain maximum speed in cold weather
