ARM U™


INTRODUCTION

Nitrogen is essential for plant life and growth and is therefore a component of many fertilizers. Nitrogen loss is a challenge facing every grower when applying Urea or UAN in the spring or fall, regardless of the application method. The risk of this nitrogen loss varies with: • the type of Nitrogen • soil type • temperature • management practices Without any protective coating up to 50% of soil-applied Nitrogen is unavailable to the plant. It may be converted quickly to ammonia gas and then released into the atmosphere or lost in the soil due to nitrification; the process of converting ammonium ions to less stable nitrate ions. Both of these processes contribute significantly to the loss of valuable nitrogen. Understanding the Nitrogen cycle and the factors that can result in nitrogen loss is crucial to finding the right solution to this problem. ATMOSPHERIC NITROGEN

LEACHING


INTRODUCTION

Ammonia volatilization occurs during the hydrolysis of urea and is governed by the urease enzyme. By minimizing the urease enzyme activity, the ARM U™ coating & NBPT molecule inhibits the urease enzyme activity and reduces the ammonia volatilization up to 96%.

BENEFITS of ARM U ™

The patented ARM U™ formula makes our products one of the most advanced Nitrogen management technologies on the market. ARM U™ patent number: USA: 9422203 B2

• Increased NBPT efficacy and efficiency (stabilized & buffering capacity)

• Thorough coverage and coating agent (spreader molecules)

• Minimal smell (unlike other products in the market)

• Acts as a dust control agent • Stays in liquid form up to -15ºC, making it easy to handle and store in cooler conditions

• Formulated and manufactured for North American conditions

Active ingredient: 18% N-(n-butyl) thiophosphoric triamide (NBPT), CAS No. 94317-64-3. Total inactive ingredients: 82 % (preservative, colorant, spreading agents, surfactant).

APPLICATION RATES

Blending into UREA-AMMONIUM NITRATE (UAN) SOLUTIONS: Use 1.5 qt ARM U™/250 gal UAN solution. Fill spray tank with half the desired amount of UAN, Measure the recommended quantity of Arm U™ and add to the tank. Mix well. Add other products at this stage, if needed. Add the second half of the UAN solution. Continue mixing until well blended.

Blending into UREA: Use 2 qt ARM U™/ 2000 lb Urea. For uniform blending, use a blender with impregnation equipment. Weigh the urea and transfer to blender. Add the required amount of ARM U™ to the urea in the blender. Blend until the ARM U™ is uniformly mixed into the urea. Do not add any other fertilizer materials until ARM U™ is thoroughly distributed. If mixture appears wet or sticky, a drying agent may be added at this time.
