AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabilizer from Koch Agronomic Services (KAS) is the original, most research-proven urease inhibitor technology on the market. With over 20 years of trials and real-world results on millions of acres worldwide, it’s the one growers trust to protect their nitrogen investment — optimizing their yield potential and minimizing environmental impact.
When there isn't enough nitrogen available for plants during their major growth period, the chance for lost yield increases. AGROTAIN is proven to optimize yields in situations where nitrogen loss is a limiting factor.
The first product of its kind in the marketplace and still going strong — AGROTAIN has been delivering superior nitrogen-loss protection due to ammonia volatilization for more than 20 years. When it comes to above-ground nitrogen protection, AGROTAIN protects a grower's investment today and protects their legacy for tomorrow.
Nitrogen loss due to ammonia volatilization can be up to 40 percent when urea or UAN is not adequately incorporated.* AGROTAIN is proven to control loss from ammonia volatilization.
*"Adequate incorporation" means more than .5 inch of rain or irrigation, or mechanical incorporation into the soil of more than 2 inches deep.
AGROTAIN is the most proven urease inhibitor on the market—backed by more than 1,000 trials and over 20 years of real-world results on millions of acres worldwide.
Research proves that even at lower temperatures, nitrogen loss is still a risk. AGROTAIN protects against cold weather loss.
Research shows that urea treated with AGROTAIN gives growers the same yield performance as ammonium nitrate fertilizer, but with fewer regulatory, transportation and storage issues.

Fall broadcasting AGROTAIN® stabilized urea resulted in an average yield increase of 6.8% over fall broadcasting untreated urea.
Spring broadcasting AGROTAIN® stabilized urea resulted in an average yield increase of 11.9% over spring broadcasting untreated urea.
All AGROTAIN nitrogen stabilizer formulations help control ammonia volatilization with the longest recognized urease inhibitor defined by Association of American Plant Food Control Officials (AAPFCO).
AGROTAIN® Advanced 1.0 is an innovative, patent-pending liquid formulation with optimized cold-weather handling properties and quicker drying time when applied to urea. The proprietary formulation allows for a reduced application rate, minimizing the potential for buildup and allowing retailers to treat faster and store less product.
AGROTAIN® DRI-MAXX stabilizer is our improved, patent-pending dry formulation. This highly concentrated dry formulation offers improved handling characteristics as well as better flowability. This product adheres to the urea granules without adding additional moisture to the blend, resulting in minimal buildup.
AGROTAIN® ULTRA stabilizer is a liquid formulation urease inhibitor that protects against ammonia volatilization. It can be blended with urea or UAN.
