What forms of N (Nitrogen) are used in FertME fertilisers?
The ‘base’ N content is present as DAP. Additional N in higher N-content fluidised products is incorporated as fine urea, incorporating urease inhibitor. For an organic source we use Moana 15%N. Fluidised urea containing urease inhibitor is vastly more efficient (two and a half times!) than granular urea. This is because fluidised urea, unlike other forms of N, can be taken up directly through the leaves, for greater plant growth efficiency. However, a urease inhibitor must be present to prevent urea being volatilized directly from the leaves before uptake.
