Dow AgroSciences Tuesday announced a partnership with the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Program, which helps growers optimize fertilizer inputs. The Dow AgroSciences nitrogen stabilizer portfolio consists of N-SERVE and INSTINCT.
"We are happy to have Dow AgroSciences as a partner of the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Program," says Lara Moody, director of stewardship programs for The Fertilizer Institute. "Nitrogen stabilization is increasingly being utilized by growers to enhance nitrogen use efficiency and reduce losses to the environment. Having Dow AgroSciences as a 4R Partner helps us demonstrate how fertilizer advancements help achieve the cropping system goals."
The 4R framework takes a science-based approach that provides stakeholders with educational tools, advocacy support and implementation recommendations for crop nutrient stewardship. The program advocates management practices to increase production, boost farmer profitability, enhance environmental protection and improve sustainability. The concept is to use the right fertilizer source, at the right rate, at the right time, with the right placement.
How INSTINCT and N-SERVE Support 4R's Efforts
INSTINCT inhibits nitrification of applied nitrogen with UAN, urea or manure. N-SERVE inhibits nitrification when used with anhydrous ammonia.
INSTINCT It is tank-mix compatible and can be incorporated with just a half inch of rain. N-SERVE reduces leaching of nitrates into groundwater and reduces the loss of nitrogen as a greenhouse gas into the atmosphere through denitrification.
