Prilled AN or Granular AN? What insures better spreading & yield?

We wanted to find out what the best fertilizer type for the UK farming landscape, so we reached out to SCS to get an expert view. Watch the video now to see what we learned.

tAKE THE QUIZ

An excellent CV is less than 10%

Comparison of CV between prilled AN and Borealis L.A.T granular AN 33.5 N

Compare to a prilled product, granular AN from Borealis L.A.T always offering a better coefficient of variation (CV) at all spreading widths and for all wind speed.

In windy condition, prilled AN cannot be spread up to 36m with a correct CV, an uneven spreading will lead to yield loss. At 36m, only granular AN offers a good CV, even in windy conditions.

Why is granular AN 33.5 N from Borealis L.A.T performing that precise and good even in windy conditions?

The physical characteristics of granulated fertilizers from Borealis L.A.T allow precise and even spreading even in windy conditions.
The term physical quality encompasses many physical properties that have an impact on spreading:
•    density
•    sphericity
•    hardness
•    mean diameter
•    grain size

This means that physical quality is an essential requirement.
Borealis L.A.T guarantees superior and consistent physical quality across our entire product range.
Granular AN 33.5 N is one of those fertilizers, which fulfills all of these requirements.

Beyond 36m

Compared to prilled products, Granular AN from Borealis L.A.T offers a better coefficient of variation (CV) at all spreading widths and at all wind speeds. In windy conditions prilled AN cannot be spread up to 36m with a correct CV and uneven spreading will lead to yield loss. At 36m, only Granular AN offers a good CV even in windy weather.

Up to 25km/h

At 25 km/h crosswinds the tests show that Granular AN 33.5 still maintains a good spreading pattern and a correct CV, unlike the prilled products. This unique benefit of Granular AN is giving the farmers confidence to go out spreading while achieving good results.

More than 19 days

3 times more days of applications in the spreading season is only assured by Granular AN 33.5. UK weather makes the farmers work schedule hard to maintain consistently. During the high season there are only 6 days with wind speeds below 15km/h, but with Granular AN farmers can spread confidently an additional 13 days when the wind speed is up to 25 km/h.
