Nitrogen is the essence of life; an essential nutrient for plant growth, development, and reproduction. It produces the greatest yield response of all nutrients, as well as the highest return on investment.
As Nitrogen is a significant component of DNA and RNA, imagine what it does to your soil! It promotes rapid vegetative growth and gives plants a healthy green color largely due to its presence within chlorophyll – the compound by which plants photosynthesis.
It is the genetic material that allows cells to grow and reproduce, not to mention its contribution to protein formation so never underestimate the need of your soil for Nitrogen.
TCT shipped several bulk Nitrogen fertilizers successfully taking into consideration all the safety measures for the cargo due to its high hygroscopic and explosive nature.

Ammonia is principally obtained via the Haber-Bosch process, an energy intensive process whereby atmospheric nitrogen is reacted with fossil fuel material. Ammonia has a 82.2% Nitrogen content.

Urea is an ammonia-derived product formed by the reaction of ammonia with carbon dioxide (CO2) at high pressure. Urea is predominantly used as straight fertilizer, but  can also be used as input for NPK complex fertilizers. Mixed with AN, it generates UAN, a liquid fertilizer. Urea is also used in various industrial segments. Urea has a 46% Nitrogen content.

Ammonium Sulfate (AS or Amsul)
AS or Amsul  is the unique straight N fertilizer providing Sulphur in addition to Nitrogen. AS is mostly obtained as a by-product of various industries, but can also be obtained by reacting ammonia with sulphuric acid. AS has a 21% Nitrogen content and a 24% Sulphur content.

Ammonium Nitrate (AN)
AN is a versatile ammonia-based product obtained by reacting nitric acid with ammonia. As a fertilizer, this is an efficient source of Nitrogen in both nitrate and ammonium forms, with a relative high N content. AN can be manufactured as a low-density product to be used in industrial segments, essentially as explosives. AN has a 33.5 to 35% Nitrogen content.

Calcium Ammonium Nitrate (CAN)
CAN is a solid nitrate-based fertilizer, usually applied on acidic soils. It is obtained by the combination of AN solution with a source of calcium (limestone). Dolomite can be also used as a calcium source, then the derived product is Magnesium Ammonium Nitrate (MAN). CAN has a 26 to 28% Nitrogen content.

Urea – Ammonium Nitrate (UAN)
UAN belongs to the family of non-pressurized nitrogen solutions. UAN is manufactured from urea and ammonium nitrate solution plus water, either from a batch or a continuous process. UAN can be used for direct application, or mixed with other solutions or with suspensions to produce fluid NPK fertilizers. UAN has a 28/32% Nitrogen content.
