ARM U™ is an NBPT based fertilizer additive that allows plants to absorb and utilize nitrogen efficiently, which otherwise disappears too quickly through conversion to ammonia gas.
When to Use
Whenever urea or UAN fertilizer is applied to soil.
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™ inhibits this enzymatic process, allowing nitrogen to be absorbed through the plant roots.
Unlike other NBPT formulations, ARM U™ is patented and 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 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.

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.
