Two-part nitrogen saving technology that inhibits both ammonia volatilization and nitrification.
ARM U™ ADVANCED is a soil fertilizer additive that utilizes two mechanisms to ensure that plants are able to absorb sufficient nitrogen for healthy, rapid growth.
When to Use
Whenever urea or UAN fertilizer is applied to soil.
Without treatment, up to 50% of the nitrogen in soil fertilizer either volatilizes to the air or leaches from the soil making it unavailable to the plant. ARM U™ ADVANCED inhibits ammonia volatilization and nitrification by inhibiting the activity of urease enzymes as well as nitrosomonas and nitrobacter bacteria in the soil. The formula contains polymers (spreader molecules) that increase NBPT’s binding rates to urease enzyme, leading to improved NBPT activity. This increased activity enables a lower percentage of active ingredient and a lower use rate while maintaining efficacy. ARM U™ ADVANCED also has a high buffering capacity to keep the solution pH below 7, and to protect and fully utilize the nitrogen present in the NBPT molecule. The liquid formulation is easy to use, has a minimal odour, and also acts as a dust control agent.

How it Works
ARM U™ ADVANCED contains N-(n-butyl) thiophosphoric triamide (NBPT), which inhibits the urease enzyme activity that produces ammonia gas, stopping nearly 96% of the volatilization loss. With the addition of 3,4-Dimethylpyrazole phosphate, it also inhibits nitrogen oxidation or nitrification by inhibiting nitrosomonas and nitrobacter bacterial activity.
Compatible with urea, urea ammonium nitrate and other urea based fertilizers.
