Dow AgroSciences has selected the brand name Instinct nitrogen stabilizer for its new product designed for use with urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) and manure applications.
An encapsulated product, Instinct will stabilize nitrogen (N) in the soil to make it less susceptible to loss due to denitrification and leaching, offering growers a tool for growing healthy corn and supporting environmentally sound practices.
The product label is currently under review by the EPA. Dow AgroSciences expects to receive federal registration for the product before 2009.
As an encapsulated formulation, Instinct will remain stable on the soil surface for up to 10 days, allowing growers flexibility in scheduling spring applications with UAN and foundation herbicides.
Instinct is non-corrosive, will require no special equipment and will be tank-mix-compatible with herbicides, insecticides and fertilizers.
It may be incorporated either mechanically or with a minimum of 1/2 inch of rain or irrigation.
