Our nitrogen stabilizers deliver unrivaled technology to help you protect any nitrogen source – so you can get the max from your nitrogen when and where it counts.
A LOOK AT NITROGEN LOSS
As soon as you apply nitrogen to the soil, it's vulnerable to loss. There are three ways N is lost: leaching, denitrification and volatilization. Up to 70% of loss happens below ground through leaching and denitrification. The remaining is lost above ground through volatilization. Here's a look at each form of loss.

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.
