BASF Offers Limus® Nitrogen Management for 2015

nafb14-basf-nickBASF Crop Protection announced last week that Limus® nitrogen management will be available for sale in the U.S. for the 2015 growing season, and we had the chance during the National Association of Farm Broadcasting convention to learn more from BASF product manager Nick Fassler.

“Where growers will use Limus is when they’re making urea or UAN applications,” said Fassler. “It will be either tank mixed or coated on the urea fertilizer and it’s really protecting that fertilizer from volatilization.”

The patented formulation behind Limus nitrogen management combines two active ingredients that are more effective than a single inhibitor on urease enzymes found in soil, resulting in a decrease of nitrogen loss. “Growers can lose over 40 percent of surface-applied urea due to volatilization within weeks of application,” said Fassler. “This makes the window for growers to optimize protection of their fertilizer very critical.”
