Ammonium volatilization from urea and its inhibition by urease inhibitor Limus

  • Invisible contribution – visible success: The addition of urease inhibitors (UI) as Limus® may reduce NH3 emissions from soil applied urea massively, thereby increasing the nitrogen use efficiency of urea-based fertilization and minimize unwanted environmental side-effects.


  • However, tools are much in demand to make NH3 emissions and its prevention by UI tangible in short term according to a “seeing, smelling, tasting” approach to foster both economic and environmental awareness. “What you see is all there is” is a well-known slogan in behavioral economics.
