Benefits

Put the max in and keep it there.

Instinct® HL nitrogen stabilizer delivers maximum profit by extending nitrogen availability during corn’s key growth stages. It works underground, where up to 70 percent of nitrogen loss can occur through leaching into the ground or denitrification into the atmosphere.

Get the max from any nitrogen source.

Any source of nitrogen is susceptible to loss through leaching or denitrification. Instinct HL maximizes nitrogen when used with UAN, urea and liquid manure.

Nitrogen when corn needs it.

Corn uses nitrogen in two forms: ammonium (NH4+) and nitrate (NO3-). But it prefers ammonium — because that form is more efficient for plants to use and less susceptible to loss.

But nitrate nitrogen can’t help corn if it’s beyond the reach of the plants’ roots during critical growth times. Instinct HL acts to slow down the bacteria that converts ammonium to nitrate, keeping nitrogen in the ammonium form longer. That means it’s there when corn is ready for it — so the crop can reach its maximum yield potential.
