NutriSphere-N gains nitrogen volatilization claim in France

Share this article

NutriSphere-N Nitrogen Fertilizer Enhancer recently obtained a Marketing Authorization (AMM) with a volatilization claim from ANSES, the French National Agency for Food and Environment Security, making the product from Verdesian Life Sciences the first to earn this claim.

In addition, NutriSphere-N now has two recognized and validated claims: “Limitation of nitrogen loss by volatilization” plus “Improved nitrogen availability for the plant” for use on a wide range of crops. With this latest announcement, NutriSphere-N can apply a mutual recognition in granting its use in Spain, Italy, Portugal, and many other countries.

“This is a major regulatory achievement, not just for Verdesian Life Sciences, but for farmers all across the European continent,” said Kenneth Avery, CEO of Verdesian Life Sciences. “The loss of nitrogen is a very real and very significant issue to farmers all over the world, so the ability for growers in France to have access to a product like this which reduces N losses by volatilization means higher yields, increased crop production, and a less negative environmental impact.”

Verdesian states NutriSphere-N keeps more nitrogen from urea-based fertilizers available for plant uptake, and to date, the product has been used successfully on more than 29 million hectares worldwide.
