Farmers vote AGROTAIN® stabilizer the most valuable fertility productPublished by on
WichitKan. – For eight years running, readers of No‐Till Farmer magazine have voted AGROTAIN®nitrogen stabilizer by Koch Agronomic Services the top product in the fertility/soil amendmentscategory. Allen Sutton, who was on the product development team for AGROTAIN® stabilizer, acceptedthe award on behalf of Koch at the National No‐Tillage Conference in Indianapolis on Friday, Jan. 11.
“Farmers who implement conservation tillage are some of the most knowledge‐seeking, discerningfarmers in the industry, so Koch should be proud that its product has been recognized for its strongperformance,” says Darrell Bruggink, executive editor and publisher of No‐Till Farmer.
AGROTAIN® stabilizer is a great fit in no‐till operations. When they add AGROTAIN® stabilizer to theirnitrogen, farmers can apply urea and liquid nitrogen (UAN) to the surface without worries of losingalmost half of their nitrogen to ammonia volatilization (losses into the air.)
Ammonia volatilization can be a major concern in no‐till fields, where higher levels of crop residue andsoil moisture contribute to faster breakdown of surface‐applied nitrogen. AGROTAIN® stabilizer blocksthe activity of the enzyme urease in the soil from breaking down the urea long enough for a rain eventor irrigation to incorporate the nitrogen into the soil.“Koch Agronomic Services will only sell products that we know with confidence will provide value tofarmers,” says Tom Snipes, vice president, commercial operations for Koch Agronomic Services.
“AGROTAIN® stabilizer is a scientifically‐proven product that performs consistently. Winning the no‐tillfertility product of the year repeatedly is a testament to the reliable performance that no‐till farmershave seen over the years.”
