Reap the rewards of maximizing manure
Instinct® is a nitrogen maximizer powered with Optinyte™ technology that
works with spring- and fall-applied liquid manure to boost corn bushels in an environmentally
Watch the video below to learn why hog producers Lonny Becker and Clair Schmidt choose Instinct to increase yield on their operations.
How it maximizes
Instinct helps prevent the loss of applied manure from leaching and denitrification.
Corn uses nitrogen in two forms: ammonium (NH4+) and nitrate (NO3-). But it definitely prefers
it’s more efficient for the plant to use and less susceptible to loss. Instinct slows down the
that convert ammonium to nitrate, keeping nitrogen in the ammonium form longer.
Manure kept in the ammonium form longer will help corn will reach its maximum yield potential.
- • Protects the environment by reducing nitrate leaching into groundwater and denitrification, the
escape of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere
- • Extends nitrogen availability up to eight weeks with spring applications so crops get the
they need during critical growth stages
- • Works with fall-applied nitrogen to extend nitrogen availability for approximately 90 days as
soil temperatures climb past 40 F and spring rainfall creates conditions for nitrogen loss
