Confused about the differences when it comes to nitrogen fertilizer technologies? You’re not alone!  Check out Perennia’s new factsheet and learn the difference between controlled release fertilizers, slow release fertilizers, urease inhibitors, nitrification inhibitors, and dual inhibitors.

As fertilizer prices continue to increase, improvements in fertilizer-use efficiency can help you get the most out of your investment and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Understanding the different tools and technologies that are available to you will enable informed decision-making about which products may work best on your farm, and how you can increase your nitrogen fertilizer efficiency.  Some, but not all, of these enhanced efficiency fertilizers are eligible for funding through the On-Farm Climate Action Fund, so if you are a farm applying for funding, it is important to know the difference.
