Instinct NXTGEN™ Nitrogen Stabilizer Launches for 2021 Growing Season

The newest formulation of Instinct® nitrogen stabilizer offers improved handling and a lower use rate

INDIANAPOLIS — Today, Corteva Agriscience announced the launch of Instinct NXTGEN nitrogen stabilizer, an enhanced formulation of Instinct® nitrogen stabilizer with improved handling and a lower use rate. The new product has received registration from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, as well as label approvals in key states, and is now available for purchase.

Instinct NXTGEN provides the same nitrogen protection as the previous formulations, but with added benefits. Specific improvements include lower viscosity for better overall handling during early spring applications and a lower use rate of 24 ounces per acre versus 37 ounces per acre for better blending when mixing with urea.

“At Corteva Agriscience, our customers are always top of mind. We wanted to ease application stress with an improved formulation of Instinct nitrogen stabilizer, particularly for those customers who use urea,” said Danny Leckie, U.S. Product Manager, Nitrogen Stabilizers, Corteva Agriscience. “The lower use rate of Instinct NXTGEN nitrogen stabilizer allows for simplified mixing with urea by preventing clumping, stickiness and clogged machinery.”

Instinct NXTGEN nitrogen stabilizer contains Optinyte® technology, which assures up to eight weeks of unrivaled protection of urea, UAN and liquid manure during fall, spring and sidedress applications.

“Optinyte technology is proven to keep nitrogen in the root zone, where it can help maximize crop yield potential and ROI for farmers while protecting the environment,” said Jeff Moon, Market Development Specialist, Corteva Agriscience. “These benefits are backed up by more than 1,000 field trials and university studies for over 45 years.”

The Optinyte technology in Instinct NXTGEN nitrogen stabilizer has been shown to:*

  • Increase average yield by 5.2% when used with spring applications
  • Lessen greenhouse gas emissions by 51%
  • Promote 28% greater soil nitrogen retention
  • Reduce leaching by 16%

Upcoming orders for Instinct® nitrogen stabilizer from Corteva Agriscience will be filled with the new formulation going forward.
