Watch our on-demand webinar for everything you need to know about reducing ammonia emissions and farming sustainably with OMEX's NitroShield
The NitroShield urease inhibitor has repeatedly demonstrated over 70% reductions in ammonia emissions from urea containing fertilisers
With less ammonia lost to the atmosphere, and contained within the soil, the nitrogen applied alongside the NitroShield urease inhibitor is better utilised by the crop
NitroShield meets the government target of reducing ammonia emissions by 70%, helping farmers grow more sustainably

Research and Development of NitroShield
NitroShield has undergone three years of rigorous testing. During these trials we've not only looked at how effectively NitroShield reduces emissions, but what the most efficient rate to use is. Alongside our field trials we've been continuously testing the product in the lab, capturing gas emissions which meet international standards with NitroShield consistently reducing ammonia losses by more than 70%.
We've also seen small yield increases when using the OMEX inhibitor, alongside NIAB trials showing a 0.3 t/ha increase in yield.
"Other inhibitors are available" but...
This trial demonstrated how effectively emissions were reduced when using NitroShield compared to a competitor product. The axis on the left represents ammonia emissions in ppm.
NIAB Trials: UK 2016 & 2017
This trial demonstrated the improvement in yield when using the NitroShield urease inhibitor alongside the application of UAN liquid fertiliser, demonstrating an improvement in nitrogen use efficiency (NUE).

Higher grain yield and protein = improved Nitrogen Use Efficiency
Reducing Ammonia Emissions
Reducing ammonia emissions not only meets Red Tractor Farm Assurance standards, but it also helps improve Nitrogen Use Efficiency on farm. Using a urease inhibitor such as NitroShield will help protect the environment, reduce emissions and improve yields for farmers throughout the UK.
