LiquiMaxx N-MAXX 40 is a highly concentrated stabilised liquid nitrogen turf fertiliser that delivers nitrogen over an extended period. LiquiMaxx N-MAXX 40 reduces the common losses associated with many nitrogen fertilisers, such as volatilisation, leaching and denitrification.
Analysis: Nitrogen (N) present as Stabilised Nitrogen @ 40.0 W/V%.
Why is Nitrogen important for Turfgrass;
Nitrogen promotes healthy leaf growth by encouraging the production of chlorophyll, which is a chemical vital to photosynthesis. While Nitrogen is largely responsible for leaf growth, it also plays a role in all areas of turfgrass growth, including the roots plus the above and underground runners.
Why choose LiquiMaxx N-MAXX 40 liquid fertiliser;
- 40% highly concentrated stabilised liquid nitrogen.
- Combination of upfront and stabilised Nitrogen.
- More efficient use of all ammonium-based fertilisers
- Allows for up to 2 weeks for the fertiliser to be incorporated into the soil.
- Less impact on the environment from the losses from volatilisation and nitrification.
- Slow release effect without using coatings or polymers, plus an immediate boost of Nitrogen.
- Supplies the base nitrogen requirements.
- Using a liquid nitrogen fertiliser is likely the better choice if you need to green up turf quickly.
A quick-release liquid fertiliser is beneficial for struggling lawns that require immediate attention. Applying LiquiMaxx N-MAXX 40 Fertiliser is less labour-intensive than spreading granular fertiliser. Quick-release liquid fertilisers typically show results sooner than slow-release granular fertilisers. Because LiquiMaxx N-MAXX 40 Fertiliser provides nitrogen immediately, it’s an ideal starter fertiliser for new lawns.
Why is LiquiMaxx N-MAXX 40 superior to other high Nitrogen turf fertilisers;
The efficient use of nitrogen on turfgrass is quickly becoming a critical issue where Urea and other Ammonium based fertilisers are used extensively. Various chemical and environmental changes occur when these types of fertilisers are added to the ground. These changes have a detrimental effect on nitrogen efficiency and the environment.
Volatilisation: Urea, once applied, will undergo hydrolysis (Breakdown) with the involvement of moisture and the urease enzyme. Urea is then broken down into ammonia and carbon dioxide. Both these gases will be released into the atmosphere in a process known as volatilisation. This will account for up to 30% of the total nitrogen lost until the fertiliser reaches the soil profile. Up to 20 mm of rainfall or irrigation is required to place all Urea into the soil profile completely. LiquiMaxx N-MAXX 40 contains an additive (NBPT), which suppresses the enzyme activity of urease, and allows up to 2 weeks for the fertiliser to be incorporated in the soil.
Nitrification: Once the urea and other ammonium-based nitrogen sources reach the soil profile, an immediate oxidation process occurs called Nitrification. With the aid of bacteria, converting ammonium to nitrite and then to nitrate production is unstoppable. Once the nitrogen has a negative charge, it can be easily leached, as it cannot hold onto soil colloid, particularly in turf management.
Denitrification: Another significant loss of Nitrogen is when the soil profile becomes saturated or waterlogged. The Anaerobic bacteria will strip the oxygen away from nitrates, thus converting the nitrogen back to nitrogen gas (N2) or nitrous oxide (N2O). The gases are returned to the atmosphere. This process is called Denitrification. In both the cases of leaching and denitrification, the additive in LiquiMaxx N-MAXX 40 (DCD) can prevent these losses for up to 16 weeks by keeping the nitrogen in an ammonium form.
