AdvaNShield Nitrogen-protected fertilisers
With concerns over air quality and leaching, AdvaNShield’s range provides protected nitrogen which can be combined with our agronomically optimised sulphur grades to meet emerging regulatory requirements and end-customer demands.
AdvaNShield makes your investment in nitrogen work harder. It provides a cost effective and patented water soluble polymer nitrogen stabilisation technology working with the soil to naturally help crops absorb the nitrogen they need for longer.
How AdvaNShield Works
AdvaNShield works by chemically protecting three soil-based elements (nickel, copper and iron) to retard the bacterial conversion of ureic, ammonium and nitrate ions into forms of nitrogen that can leach, volatilise and be lost to the crop. It does not harm soil bacteria, earthworms, fish or fauna or leave a soil residue.
Field-scale experiments have shown that for some crops on some soil types a single application of nitrogen is possible easing spring workloads permitting high work rates in tight weather windows.
Replicated trials in three European countries including the UK tested AdvaNShield over three seasons and demonstrated the following benefits:
Higher yields – 4% increase in crop yield.
Less pollution – 24% reduction in leaching.
Cleaner air – 54% reduction in nitrous oxide emissions.
More efficient – 4.5% improvement in nitrogen use efficiency.
