Yara Fertilizers

Pure Nutrient

An expanding world population and the dawning environmental crisis are putting agriculture under a whole new light. How can food security and environmental protection be reconciled? What is the role of mineral fertilizers? How to weight agronomic performance versus environmental burden? Yara, as a knowledge leader in plant nutrition, responds to questions regarding the best choice of mineral fertilizers.

Pure Performance

Mineral nitrogen fertilizers, depending on their chemical composition, have distinct impacts on yield and environment. For many years now, European farmers have been aware that nitrate-based fertilizers are the most efficient and most reliable nitrogen source available.

In addition, these products have a significantly lower environmental impact than urea-based products (urea, UAN) through better control of leaching, lower volatilization and a lower life cycle carbon footprint.

Nitrate-based fertilizers - such as ammonium nitrate, calcium ammonium nitrate and nitrate-based NPK compounds - are pure nutrients, offering the required precision, efficiency and reliability to meet the agronomic and environmental imperatives of modern agriculture. Nitrate-based fertilizers are the natural choice for farmers who care for both yield and the environment.

The Pure Nutrient brochure summarizes some of the essential aspects of the agronomic and environmental impact of nitrogen fertilizer choices.
