Rain will wash nitrate nitrogen out of the soil and into the waterways. Instinct® and N-Serve® nitrogen stabilizers reduce leaching by 16%.
Nitrosomonas bacteria convert stable ammonium nitrogen into unstable nitrate, which can easily escape into the air. Instinct® and N-Serve® nitrogen stabilizers reduce denitrification, lessening greenhouse gas emissions by 51% and promoting 28% greater soil nitrogen retention.
Volatization is a process that converts usable nitrogen into ammonia gas, which escapes into the environment instead of getting into the root zone. Heat speeds up the conversion.
