As farmers reflect on this past growing season and make plans for spring, nutrient management is a large part of the equation. Nitrogen stabilizers are an important component of nutrient management plans, and Corteva Agriscience™, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont, has announced a new above-ground nitrogen stabilizer that fills an industry need and adds to its nitrogen maximizer portfolio.
Corteva Agriscience™ Nitrogen Management Specialist Tina Troester says PinnitMax™ allows farmers and retailers to protect and maximize their above-ground nitrogen applications.
“PinnitMax™ addresses a need for better handling with above-ground nitrogen stabilizers by providing a user-friendly urease inhibitor that maximizes application of urea and UAN. This solution from Corteva Agriscience adds to the nitrogen maximizer portfolio, which currently includes N-Serve and Instinct below-ground nitrogen stabilizers. Now, farmers and retailers can select from our comprehensive protection of any nitrogen source above- and below-ground.”
Farmers considering a urease inhibitor for their operation should focus on length of control and formulation advantages that best suit their crop and soil needs.
Troester explained the advantages of the new PinnitMax™ saying, “PinnitMax™ specifically prevents volatilization of urea and UAN applications for up to 14 days, ensuring nitrogen gets into the root zone for optimum crop uptake. The unique formulation of PinnitMax™ also allows for simple blending, free-flowing applications and effortless cleanup — freeing up labor and processing time for a more efficient operation. In addition, PinnitMax™ contains an exclusive composition of the active ingredient, NBPT. This composition makes PinnitMax™ the most powerful, gallon-for-gallon, above-ground nitrogen stabilizer with an ultra-low use rate.”
Troester adds that as farmers review their year-round nitrogen applications and nutrient management, the nitrogen maximizers portfolio provides solutions for any fertilizer type or application timing.
“PinnitMax™ completes the existing nitrogen maximizers portfolio from Corteva Agriscience by providing above-ground nitrogen protection in addition to the two below-ground nitrogen stabilizers, N-Serve and Instinct. All fertilizer types can be protected with this portfolio: PinnitMax™ for above-ground urea and UAN applications, N-Serve for below-ground anhydrous ammonia applications and Instinct for below-ground urea, UAN and manure applications. PinnitMax™ works above ground to help your nitrogen get to the root zone. N-Serve and Instinct technology work below ground to keep it there.”
Troester added that, “Best of all, the portfolio has more than 40 years of experience shaping the nitrogen stabilizer category along with the most extensive university research available, providing the proof of efficacy that so many farmers and retailers look for and expect.”
PinnitMax™ will be released to the market for spring 2019 applications. For more information, please visit PinnitMaxStabilizer.com or connect with your Corteva Agriscience sales representative.
