Arclin, a chemistry and applications company for the building, design, energy and agriculture industries, and Eco Agro Resources, makers of agricultural nutrient products, announced that Arclin will be the exclusive seller of Eco Agro's nitrogen urease inhibitor in the United States.

Arclin will offer the fertilizer additive as part of its NitroGain™ suite of products.  Called NitroGain UI, the product reduces nitrogen loss from urea-based fertilizers, giving crops more time to absorb vital nutrients and lessening nitrogen runoff into ground water and streams.

"Eco Agro Resources has a history of developing technologically advanced and environmentally friendly agricultural products," said Bradley Bolduc, senior director of performance products at Arclin, of the company's decision to partner with the North Carolina-based company. "Their urease inhibitor was a logical choice to add to our growing line of agricultural products aimed at increasing crop yields and protecting environmental resources," he said.  Arclin's NitroGain suite also includes a slow release nitrogen fertilizer.

NitroGain UI is available at select agricultural distributors across the country, initially on a limited basis.

"We have long respected Arclin's creativity and innovation in bringing chemistry solutions to a variety of industries," said Eco Agro Resources' Chief Executive Officer David McKnight. "We're excited to see our urease inhibitor become part of Arclin's NitroGain agricultural product family in the U.S."

Blended with UAN (urea ammonium nitrate) fertilizers, NitroGain UI urease inhibitor reduces nitrogen loss by hindering the conversion of nitrogen to ammonia and carbon dioxide.  Nitrogen thus stays in the soil longer, helping increase crop health and yield and protecting water sources by reducing runoff. By increasing nitrogen efficiency, NitroGain UI can also reduce fertilizer costs. 

Patent-pending, it is based on n-butyl triophosphoric triamide, or NBPT, technology.

Nitrogain UI has low toxicity and is non-carcinogenic, making it considerably safer than other commercially available urease inhibitors.  It can be used either to coat urea granules or mixed with urea ammonium nitrate systems.  Its most common applications are nitrogen-focused crops like corn, cotton, rice, coffee and wheat, and turf grasses.
