Effective and Responsive Nitrogen

Effective nitrogen? That’s a given. Responsive nitrogen? That’s amazing.

Crops really go for ESN® SMART NITROGEN®, and so does your bottom line. That’s because its unique technology responds to the same factors that spur plant growth. How does it do it? ESN is a urea granule encapsulated in a polymer coating that protects the nitrogen from loss through leaching, volatilization and denitrification. ESN technology controls its release to match plant demand based on soil temperature. Your crops get the nitrogen they need, when they need it. That’s what we mean by responsive.

Minimize N loss. Maximize Yield. >> Learn More
