Efficie-N-t 28 is a slow release liquid foliar nitrogen fertiliser based on urea polymers of variable lengths. The longer the chains, the slower they breakdown, resulting in a phased release of nitrogen over a total of 6 to 8 weeks.
The polymer chains break down to release nitrogen as amide (NH2), groups which are the building blocks of proteins, a process that is much more energy efficient than converting nitrate(NO3) groups into protein.
Efficie-N-t 28‘s novel chemistry delays the nitrogen availability to the crop to give a natural physiological response, avoiding the ‘flush’ growth, seen with nitrate based fertilisers. Nitrates draw in water, weakening the cell walls, making the crop more prone to lodging and attack by diseases.
Meeting maize’s need for Nitrogen in-season with Efficie-N-t 28 slow release foliar nitrogen fertiliser
Maize needs some 50% of its total nitrogen requirement from the 8th leaf stage through to tasselling, but a further 35% is needed to fill the cob, during August and September. However, losses due to leaching and volatilisation of seedbed applied nitrogen may leave the crop short of essential nitrogen during these later stages of growth. Until now there has not been a safe product for in-season supplementary nitrogen application, however trials in 2012 and 2013, at six sites across the UK, have shown Efficie-N-t 28 can be effectively and safely used on maize and the results have shown an average fresh weight yield response of 13%. Applied in July, Efficie-N-t 28 helps meet the crops continuing need for nitrogen as the cobs begin to fill.
