  • N-(N-butyl) Thiophosphoric Triamide Solution

    N-Butylthiophosphoric triamide (NBPT, hereinafter referred to as "NBPT") is currently one of the most effective soil urease inhibitors. Agricultural fertilizers, mainly nitrogen fertilizers, are quickly decomposed by urease in the soil under normal use. This not only wastes a lot of nitrogen fertilizer resources, but also increases the cost of crop production, and brings a series of problems such ...

  • NPK compound fertilizer granulation production line

    NPK compound fertilizer granulation production line NPK compound fertilizer has the advantages of good appearance, high fertilizer efficiency, uniform coating and strong wear resistance. It can provide sulfur nutrition after degradation of the film, and is pollution-free, which meets ...

  • Can mountains of animal bones boost food security in Ethiopia?

    By turning a wasted resource into fertilizer, researchers aim to help a hungry nation replenish depleted soils As unemployed young men pick through trash heaps near Jimma University in southwestern Ethiopia to find treasures to sell, they search for one of the hottest resources in demand at the moment: discarded animal bones. ...

  • One crop, two ways, multiple benefits

    Nitrogen fixation is one of the best examples of cooperation in nature. Soil microbes – naturally occurring bacteria in the soil – work with plants to pull nitrogen from the air. They turn the nitrogen into a form the plant is able to use. In return, the plant lets the microbes eat some of the sugars it makes. Faba beans (also called fava beans) are one example of plants that work ...

  • Potato response to a polymer-coated urea on an irrigated, coarse-textured soil

    Controlled release fertilizers, especially polymer-coated urea (PCU), have been shown to reduce nitrate (NO3) leaching while maintaining potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) yields, but cost has been prohibitive. A new type of PCU (Environmentally Smart Nitrogen, Agrium, Inc., Calgary, AB) is less costly than previous PCUs, but its effectiveness on potato production has not been extensively studied. A ...

  • Winter wheat and maize response to urea ammonium nitrate and a new urea formaldehyde polymer fertilizer

    Slow release N fertilizers have potential to improve yield and nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) in winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and maize (Zea mays L.). A slow release urea formaldehyde polymer (UFP) was compared with aqueous urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) [(NH2)2CO, NH4NO3] during a 2-yr field experiment in North Carolina. Crops were grown on Candor (sandy, siliceous, thermic Grossarenic ...
