Corteva Agriscience, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont, announced the launch of a new above-ground nitrogen stabilizer. Farmers can now maximize their above-ground nitrogen with the new PinnitMax nitrogen stabilizer and help ensure urea and UAN applications get into the root zone. PinnitMax is available for purchase in the U.S. for spring 2019 applications. PinnitMax joins N-Serve and Instinct nitrogen stabilizers in Corteva Agriscience’s existing nitrogen maximizer portfolio. 

PinnitMax prevents volatilization of urea and UAN applications for up to 14 days, helping to ensure the nitrogen gets into the root zone for optimum crop uptake.

PinnitMax offers farmers and retailers specific advantages and benefits thanks to the unique formulation, including:

  • Gallon-for-gallon, above-ground urease inhibitor with an ultra-low use rate.
  • Simple blending, free-flowing applications and cleanup — freeing up labor and processing time for a more efficient operation.
  • The active ingredient, NBPT (N-(n-butyl) thiophosphoric triamide).

PinnitMax complements the existing nitrogen maximizers portfolio from Corteva Agriscience by providing above-ground nitrogen protection in addition to the two below-ground nitrogen stabilizers, N-Serve and Instinct. All fertilizer types can be protected with this portfolio: PinnitMax for above-ground urea and UAN applications, N-Serve for below-ground anhydrous ammonia applications and Instinct for below-ground urea, UAN and manure applications.

The Corteva Agriscience nitrogen maximizers portfolio features unrivaled technology to protect any nitrogen fertilizer used, helping to fully realize yield potential. The portfolio also has more than 40 years of trusted experience shaping the nitrogen stabilizer category along with the most extensive university research available.

PinnitMax nitrogen stabilizer is now available for spring 2019 applications in the U.S. and will be rolled out to other geographies in the next few years. For more information, please visit or connect with your Corteva Agriscience sales representative.
