Proven Anhydrous Protection is Now Available in Canada

Over a decade ago, a team of agronomists, chemists and technology specialists started working on finding an anhydrous ammonia stabilizer solution. What they created is CENTURO®: a nitrification inhibitor growers can use with anhydrous ammonia to help protect against nitrogen loss from leaching and denitrification. Now available in Canada, this groundbreaking solution slows the conversion of ammonium to nitrate. It also has a subzero freeze point, extending your window of protection against environmental impacts like temperature while also boosting your yield potential. Learn how you can maximize the nutrients available for crop uptake and get 3X better protection with CENTURO. >> Learn More
