Eco AgroEco Agro has introduced N-BOUND™ nitrogen stabilizer as a breakthrough for protecting nitrogen against loss in the soil, due to denitrification and leaching.

According to Norm Davy, Chief Marketing Officer for Eco Agro, the product incorporates unique PENXCEL technology to deliver a proven nitrogen stabilizer, Dicyandiamide (DCD), for applications not possible with previous formulations.

“Using PENXCEL technology, we have engineered a formulation that can be applied to three different nitrogen sources to protect against loss,” said Davy. “First, on urea we can add our fast-drying stabilizer and keep the granules flowing freely. Second, in UAN, N-BOUND eliminates the floating clumps of powder and settling hassles. And third, for anhydrous ammonia, growers can use non-corrosive N-BOUND stabilizer in their fall and spring applications, either blended into the tank or metered in line.”

ecoagro-n-boundEco Agro reports that in all tests conducted with various anhydrous equipment manufacturers, N-BOUND stabilizer has been proven non-corrosive and was accurately metered through standard systems, and Davy says it is a breakthrough for a stabilizer with limited use because of its handling characteristics. “With the original powder DCD you have a real hard time mixing it into fertilizer,” he says. “While DCD delivered results at a research level, without a viable formulation, the market never developed. It was just too difficult.”

Davy thinks growers and retailers will now give this stabilizer another try. “N-BOUND opens up possibilities for growers and retailers never available before. We make it easy to use with a liquid formulation that blends fast and eliminates the hoisting of heavy bags of powder into a tank”.
