Aqualis® ENTEC® Solub 21 – Nitrate Nitrogen


Aqualis® ENTEC® Solub fertilizers inhibit the transformation of ammonium nitrogen into nitrate nitrogen (nitrification), ensuring it remains in the soil for a certain time. This is achieved by inhibiting nitrosomonas bacteria, responsible for transforming ammonia into nitrite. Plants thus obtain both forms of mineral nitrogen, ammonium and nitrate, over a prolonged period.

Crops benefit from mixed nitrogen nutrition with limited risks of nitrogen loss to the environment.

Improving nitrogen use efficiency: Aqualis® ENTEC® Solub fertilizers are approved under European fertilizer legislation according to REGULATION (EU) No 1257/2014.

Aqualis® ENTEC® Solub 21 – Properties
  • Reduced loss of nitrogen and optimum ammonium / nitrate balance mean that Aqualis® ENTEC® solub fertilizers provide more nitrogen for crop uptake.
  • The uptake of nitrogen as ammonium lowers pH in the root zone, favouring the uptake of phosphorus and some microelements, which are more readily available at acidic pH levels. This results in increased root formation and better nutrient assimilation, which also contributes to increased yields.
  • Ammonium uptake promotes synthesis of some plant hormones (gibberellins, cytokinins and polyamines), responsible for flowering, ensuring greater setting, which translates into increased yields.
  • Aqualis® ENTEC® solub fertilizers can also improve certain aspects of crop quality, such as reduced nitrate content of leaves and fruit, a more uniform size and increased consistency, colour and conservation.
  • Applying Aqualis® ENTEC® solub fertilizers reduces both nitrate leaching and the emission of nitrogen gases into the atmosphere.
  • Available in 25 kg bags.
