Verdesian Life Sciences is launching NutriSphere-N HV, a new polymer formulation of the NutriSphere-N Nitrogen Fertilizer Manager that protects high-volume applications of UAN.

The HV (high volume) formulation will be commercially available in March, and will provide a new, cost effective option for growers who apply high volume applications of UAN, at or above 35 gallons per acre.

NutriSphere-N HV will deliver all of the benefits of NutriSphere-N, including:

Long-lasting protection against all three forms of nitrogen (N) loss: volatilization, leaching and denitrification

The ability to pretreat UAN in storage tanks

An easy-to-handle-and-use formulation

In addition, NutriSphere-N and NutriSphere-N HV protect and manage applied N fertilizer regardless of application timing, giving growers flexibility and advanced protection.

The launch of NutriSphere-N HV comes at a time when growers are managing through a challenging agricultural marketplace. The new HV formulation will help those growers who apply higher volumes of UAN to be more successful and profitable.

“Lower crop prices and tighter margins are driving corn growers to seek increased efficiencies and higher yields,” says Ryan Bond, vice president of marketing and technical development. “NutriSphere-N HV delivers both — more available N for increased yields at a lower cost per acre when higher rates of UAN are being applied.”
