Eco Agro Resources (EAR) introduces N-Bound nitrogen (N) stabilizer as an alternative to current nitrapyrin formulations to control denitrification and leaching. 

Unique PENXCEL technology delivers a proven N stabilizer, Dicyandiamide (DCD), in a non-corrosive liquid formulation. This product is not classified as a restricted-use pesticide, and does not impact soil bacteria in the same way as the industry standard product.

Fertilizer dealers have the flexibility to introduce N-Bound directly into the tank or use metering systems. EAR conducted tests with manufacturers of pumps for filling tanks and metering devices for anhydrous equipment. All tests have confirmed that the product is non-corrosive and works well with these the systems in field tests.

N-Bound stabilizer is a breakthrough liquid formulation that makes handling easy. EAR chief marketing officer Norm Davy has heard from retailers and growers who have witnessed N losses due to wet weather in 2015 and say they want a new option. 

"N-Bound opens up possibilities for growers and retailers never available before,” he says. “Our liquid formulation blends fast, provides a safer alternative than the current restricted-use treatment, and eliminates the hassle of corrosion."

 The N-Bound product can also be used on urea and in liquid UAN. This provides extra flexibility to retailers who offer a range of N fertilizer options with nitrification inhibitors.
