Your customers have a new option to protect their nitrogen in 2022. Corteva Agriscience introduces PinnitMax® TG nitrogen stabilizer, an above-ground solution that protects urea and UAN applications. PinnitMax TG prevents volatilization for up to 14 days, which helps ensure nitrogen gets into corn’s root zone to maximize yield potential.
“We’re excited to bring PinnitMax TG nitrogen stabilizer to market for the 2022 season. The new solution comes in a convenient solvent formulation, which is easy to handle,” says William Wynn, U.S. product manager, nitrogen stabilizers, Corteva Agriscience.
Whether used with fall, spring or sidedress applications, PinnitMax TG works with farmers’ existing nutrient management plans and multiple fertilizer types. It provides an effective concentration of active ingredient, resulting in a use rate of 72 ounces per ton of urea and 36 ounces per ton of UAN. The new product also is compatible with various fertilizer handling systems, blenders and impregnation devices, providing flexibility to you and your customers.
Wynn adds: “PinnitMax TG nitrogen stabilizer offers other benefits like straightforward blending, free-flowing applications and easy cleanup, which speeds up labor and processing time to help optimize retailer and farmer operations.”
You’ll be able to easily identify the distinctive blue color of PinnitMax TG, which is stain-free and easily washes out of machinery. The coloring also allows you and your customers to see that all their fertilizer is fully covered with the stabilizer.
“The nitrogen maximizers business from Corteva has more than 45 years of trusted experience shaping the nitrogen stabilizers category,” says Justin Dikeman, U.S. portfolio marketing leader, nitrogen stabilizers, Corteva Agriscience. “And by adding a nitrogen stabilizer that protects against nitrogen loss above ground, we’re giving our customers the flexibility they need to create nutrient management programs that fit their unique operations.”
Corteva now offers three nitrogen stabilizers in its portfolio. PinnitMax ® TG nitrogen stabilizer works above ground, protecting against volatilization, to help applied nitrogen get to the root zone. N-Serve® and Instinct NXTGEN® nitrogen stabilizers, powered by Optinyte® technology, work below ground, protecting against leaching and denitrification, helping ensure nitrogen stays in the root zone. All three solutions help maximize yield potential.
“With volatile fertilizer prices, it’s more important than ever for growers to protect their nitrogen investments,” Wynn says. “Nitrogen is already one of the most expensive inputs each growing season, and it’s essential for high yield. A proven stabilizer, like one of our nitrogen maximizers, can help ensure a good return on that investment.”
