The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted Eco Agro Resources three patents for N-YIELD®, N-BOUND® and the NEON™ family of nitrogen stabilizers. These three are the first of 15 patents currently undergoing the patent process that will protect hundreds of possible combinations of active ingredients like NBPT, DMPP, DCD, Nitrapyrin, and multiple solvent options.
“These technologies offer new capabilities and great opportunities to the efficiency fertilizer market. Now a combination of widely proven urease inhibitors combined with the most used nitrification inhibitors can be applied directly onto fertilizers,” said Eco Agro International President Andrew Semple. “This significant breakthrough advances fertilizer efficiency worldwide. With our NEON™ products, fertilizer can now be protected from both above ground losses and below ground losses with one product at a local fertilizer dealer. In the past, customized inhibitor combinations of this magnitude were required to be incorporated into fertilizer during manufacture at the nitrogen plant.”
