Next generation nitrification technology developed by Soilgenic

Share this article

Soilgenic Technologies, LLC has developed next generation nitrification technology for below ground nitrogen stabilization.

The Soilgenic R&D team has established and patented an enhanced DCD technology – NitroBlock Enhanced DCD – that they say significantly improves below ground loss of nitrogen from leaching and denitrification.

NitroBlock Enhanced DCD is a 40 percent formulation that contains both free DCD and enhanced DCD that improves the overall performance for DCD’s effectiveness, providing a longer lasting below ground nitrification technology. Testing has showed that NitroBlock keeps nitrogen in the stable ammonium (NH4) stage and significantly reduced the nitrification process resulting in 10-times lower nitrate nitrogen levels in the soil than regular DCD and over 80-times lower than untreated urea. Soil mobility trials shows that NitroBlock’s ability to stay with the nitrogen longer allows for a longer lasting more effective nitrification technology.

Jeff Ivan, president and CEO of Soilgenic Technologies, said the company will be conducting third party nitrous oxide (N20) trials to measure the total reduction of GHG emissions from the NitroBlock nitrification technology. “We are excited about the results and the technology as it is a significant industry improvement in below ground nitrogen protection.”
