Adequate water and nutrition is essential for increasing yields in agriculture. Good results come not just from planting and fertilizing, but by paying close attention to plants’ needs. One of those needs is balancing plant nutrition. To ensure balanced nutrition, growers need optimized uptake of nutrients and reduced nitrogen loss. About 50 percent of nitrogen content in fertilizer is not taken up by the plant creating a significant opportunity to drive improvement in nitrogen efficiency through innovation and adoption of 4R practices. BASF is developing solutions that will lead to improved nitrogen management for better plant nutrition.
BASF Innovation Specialists – BASF innovation specialists work directly with growers to recommend agronomic planning decisions and to help educate growers on nitrogen management best practices.
Limus® Nitrogen Management – a urease inhibitor with two active ingredients that together are more effective on the range of soil urease enzymes than a single inhibitor. Greater urea protection leads to improved nitrogen availability during critical crop-growth stages for more consistent yields
Vault® and Nodulator® Inoculants – seed treatments that improve nodulation and nitrogen uptake in leguminous crops, increasing yield potential.
