What GEN Products Are Available
|Nitrogen Only (N)||46%|
|Nitrogen + Sulphur (N)+(S)||38%||7%|
|Nitrogen + Sulphur (N)+(S)||35%||10%|
- GEN can also be incorporated into a range of NPK and NP grades
GEN uses the unique, polymer-based urease and nitrification inhibitor, Nutrisphere-N® Nitrogen Fertiliser Manager to stabilise the nitrogen reducing the risk of losses from volatilisation, leaching and nitrification.
GEN is as effective as CAN and gives farmers a viable and economic alternative source of nitrogen.
How does GEN work?
By shielding nitrogen from the soil enzymes and bacteria that cause volatilisation and nitrification losses, Nutrisphere-N® holds more of the applied N in the more stable ammonium form for longer.
Holding the N in ammonium form for longer reduces losses to volatilisation and nitrification and keeps more of the N available for plant uptake.
What are the benefits for farmers?
- Financial savings from lower cost per
unit of N
- Protected from losses and can therefore
be spread from mid-February onwards to boost early spring growth
- Time saving – less product goes further
- High quality granular product which can be spread to 30m +.
What is the evidence?
A series of independent replicated trials over 2010 – 2012 has demonstrated GEN to be more reliable than urea and as effective as CAN. The graph below summarises a network of trials on wheat on a variety of soil types and sites.
