Description

Advanced nitrogen management technology to increase nitrogen efficiencies through improved agronomics and handling.

Stop wasting fertilizer! ARM U™ is an NBPT soil fertilizer additive that allows plants to absorb and utilize nitrogen, which otherwise disappears too quickly through conversion to ammonia gas. Give your crop the opportunity to flourish with the nitrogen it needs for healthy, rapid growth.

When to Use

Whenever urea or UAN fertilizer is applied to soil.

Benefits

Nitrogen is essential for plant life and growth and is therefore a component of many fertilizers. However, up to 50% of the nitrogen applied as soil fertilizer is unavailable to plants because it is quickly converted to ammonia gas and released into the atmosphere. ARM U™ prevents this enzymatic process, allowing nitrogen to be absorbed through the plant roots.

Unlike other NBPT formulations, ARM U™ is an improved formulation that 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. This increased activity enables a lower active ingredient and a lower use rate. In addition, ARM U™ is formulated to have a high buffering capacity to keep the solution pH below 7 and to protect and fully utilize the nitrogen present in the NBPT molecule.

For the best results, use the complete line of recommended Active AgriScience™ products for your crop.

  • Wheat: Active Prime™, Active Build™, Active Complete™, Proform N™, Active Konnect™, Micronutrients as needed.
  • Corn, Hops: Active Prime, Active Build, Active Flower™, Active Complete, Proform N, Micronutrients as needed.
  • Canola, Soybean, Pulses, Tomatoes, Vegetables: Active Prime, Active Build, Active Flower, Proform N, Active Konnect, Micronutrients as needed.
  • Tree Fruit, Tree Nuts: Active Build, Active Flower, Active Complete, Proform N, Active Konnect, Micronutrients as needed.
  • Berries: Active Build, Active Flower, Proform N, Active Konnect, Micronutrients as needed.

How it Works

ARM U contains N-(n-butyl) thiophosphoric triamide (NBPT), which inhibits the urease enzyme activity that produces ammonia gas. By stopping nearly 96% of the volatilization loss, plants have the opportunity to absorb and utilize the nitrogen necessary for photosynthesis and production of protein.

Application Rate

UREA: Use 2 L ARM U/1000 kg Urea.

UAN: Use 1.2 L ARM U™/ 1000 kg UAN solution.

Blending into UREA: Use 2 L ARM U/1000 kg Urea.

  1. For uniform blending, use a blender with impregnation equipment. Weigh the urea and transfer to blender.
  2. Add the required amount of ARM U to the urea in the blender.
  3. Blend until the ARM U is uniformly mixed into the urea.
  4. Do not add any other fertilizer materials until ARM U is thoroughly distributed. If mixture appears wet or sticky, a drying agent may be added at this time.

Blending into UREA-AMMONIUM NITRATE (UAN) SOLUTIONS: Use 1.2 L ARM U/ 1000 kg UAN solution.

  1. Fill spray tank with half the desired amount of UAN.
  2. Measure the recommended quantity of Arm U and add to the tank. Mix well. Add other products at this stage, if needed.
  3. Add the second half of the UAN solution. Continue mixing until well blended.

Research

Science & Research

Increased NBPT Efficacy and Efficiency

ARM U and ARM U™ ADVANCED reduce nitrogen loss better than any other products on the market.

Reduced Requirement for Urea/UAN

By reducing nitrogen loss as ammonia by 96%, the requirement for nitrogen fertilizer can be reduced by 20-30%.

Reduced Odour

ARM U and ARM U ADVANCED are buffered formulas that stabilize NBPT molecules and prevent odorous ammonia emissions.

Dust Control

ARM U and ARM U ADVANCED contains bio-polymers and spreaders that quickly cover urea granules, allowing for a smooth flow and reduction in dust.

Great for Colder Climates

Stays in liquid form up to -15C, making it easy to handle and store in cooler conditions.

Increased Chlorophyll

By allowing the absorption of nitrogen, the development of chlorophyll is supported, fostering photosynthetic energy production and storage for increased health and growth.

Increased Protein

Increased nitrogen absorption supports the production of plant proteins, including DNA and RNA, allowing plants to manifest their full genetic potential.

Increased Growth and Yield

By supporting the production of chlorophyll, protein, and nucleic acids, plants grow faster, stronger, and healthier, producing an overall higher yield.
