By buying blue bag you can rest assured that ‘quality in, delivers quantity out’.

CF Fertilisers British produced Ammonium Nitrate (AN), Nitram®, offers farmers the perfect balance of quality and value. 

Nitrogen is the single most important nutrient for growth.

Most agricultural soils contain too little naturally occurring, plant-available Nitrogen to meet your crops needs, throughout the growing period and with Nitrogen being the key to yield, careful consideration should be given to the type of Nitrogen applied.

Ammonium Nitrate is the most efficient and predictable form of Nitrogen for UK growers. Government commissioned trials that compared alternate sources of Nitrogen found that AN only lost 3% as Ammonia to the atmosphere. Urea average losses were 24% and as high as 58% in certain circumstances. Prilled for improved aerodynamics, Nitram achieves an even spread pattern due to its consistency and even spreading qualities. With Nitram product density at 1,000kg/cubic metre and urea density at 750kg/cubic metre, any spreader hopper will contain the same kgs Nitrogen whether it contains Nitram or urea

Our Nitram® product has been consistently delivering quality yields, proteins and reliable spreading widths for more than 50 years.  Evolving to meet farmers exact needs throughout the decades, this well respected product can be found on many farms throughout the UK.
