THE RED FERTILIZER

Reg. No: K9484

Conventional Urea

TRIOMF NITREX

NitreXTM is an astonishing nitrogen-based granular fertilizer marked by its unique red appearance. NitreXTM is different to other urea products due to its specific qualities relating to urease and nitrification. The extremely precise properties of NitreXTM promotes excellent and effective distribution and absorption of nitrogen.

What are the shortfalls of urea?

  • Urea is by far the most commonly used source of nitrogen worldwide in N-based fertilizers
  • Urea transitions very quickly to ammonia when it comes into contact with the soil
  • Most soil bacteria, fungi, algae, etc. contain the enzyme urease

Benefits of NitreXTM compared to urea?

  • NitreXTM contains an urease inhibitor that prevents conversion of urea to the NH3 gas phase, where it is volatile. The loss of nitrogen is therefore limited and NitreXTM is suitable for surface application. The urea does not convert to NH3 therefore giving the urea a chance to penetrate the ground, where it will not be volatile
  • NitreXTM – the red fertilizer – contains a nitrification inhibitor. It supresses the conversion of NH4+ to NO3-. The release of nitrate is more controlled and the result is less leaching of nitrogen
  • The high concentration of N means that there is a significant difference in the price/kg of N. This is in favour of NitreXTM when compared to other sources of N‑fertilizer
  • Urease is responsible for the conversion of urea to ammonia gas
  • Ammonia gas then converts to ammonium
  • If urea is applied to the soil surface and it is not immediately followed by rain/irrigation, volatilisation in the form of ammonia gas occurs
