Limus nitrogen management can be blended with urea and UAN fertilizers to protect against volatilization and nitrogen loss, providing more than three weeks of protection. The patented formulation behind Limus nitrogen management combines two active ingredients that are more effective than a single inhibitor on urease enzymes found in soil, resulting in a decrease of nitrogen loss.
Nitrogen (N) is fundamental to the growth and reproduction of every living creature. It naturally dominates the gases in the air that we breathe (along with oxygen), enables us to grow food—both vegetable and animal—for human nutrition, and it provides many other beneficial uses and resources for society. Fertilizer N makes it possible to provide abundant, safe and nutritious food that sustains the human family; at least half of the people on Earth owe their daily existence to fertilizer N use.
