Vizura® is a nitrification inhibitor for use with slurry and liquid biogas digestate waste. Vizura® improves the nitrogen use efficiency of slurry and digestate and increases yield by reducing nitrogen losses from nitrate leaching and nitrous oxide to the atmosphere.
Reduction in nitrogen losses by delaying the conversion of ammonium into nitrate
Reduction in nitrate leaching and potential loss to drainage water
Reduction in damaging nitrous oxide emissions
Increased nitrogen availability can benefit plant physiology, with improved yields and crop quality
Significant amounts of nitrogen are lost during and after the spreading of slurry and digestate. This nitrogen can be lost as ammonia and nitrous oxide into the atmosphere or through nitrate leaching. By delaying the conversion of ammonium into nitrate, Vizura® reduces nitrogen losses from nitrate leaching and can reduce nitrous oxide emissions by 50%.
BASF trials have also show significant improvements in crop yield and quality:
