CENTURO™

Research Data

KAS is excited to share the promising research results conducted by land-grant universities across the Midwest during the seven-year development phase.

Protected Nitrogen. Protected Yields.

Research studies conducted at leading organizations across the Corn Belt showed that CENTURO improved yields in both spring- and fall-applied anhydrous ammonia an average of 10 bu/acre over untreated ammonia.

The underlying data was provided by University of Nebraska, University of Missouri, and the Illinois Fertilizer and Chemical Association under a Research Trial Financial Support Agreement with Koch Agronomic Services, LLC, and neither the university nor the individual researchers referenced endorse or recommend any product or service.

Minimized Environmental Impact.

Studies conducted at Iowa State University showed that CENTURO reduced nitrate leaching by 65% in fall-applied anhydrous ammonia and 30% in spring-applied anhydrous ammonia.

Research-Backed Features & Benefits

During the seven-year development phase, KAS researchers and developers discovered promising features and benefits.

Highly Effective

KAS research has shown that CENTURO reduced nitrate leaching by 65% in fall-applied ammonia and by 30% in spring-applied ammonia.

Improved Nitrogen Use Efficiency (NUE)

KAS research has shown that CENTURO improved nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) of fall-applied ammonia by 35% (from 0.94 to 0.61 lbs. N/bushel).

Noncorrosive Formula

CENTURO will provide a water-soluble and noncorrosive option which will make it easier to handle and gentler on equipment, reducing downtime and/or exposure and reducing potential damage to equipment.

Will Not Swell O-Rings

CENTURO will be able to remain in pumps over time without affecting their operation, and washing or rinsing equipment between use will not be necessary.

Flexible Storage Options

Because research has shown that CENTURO is noncorrosive, no stainless steel tanks will be necessary for storage.

Highly Stable

CENTURO will provde excellent cold and hot weather stability, with no freeze protection required and no salting out or crystal formulation down to -9 F (-23 C).
