Choose SustaiN® for sustainable feed production
With new nitrogen reporting limits, SustaiN is the easy way to meet your regulatory commitments without compromising growth. SustaiN’s innovative formula halves the amount of nitrogen lost through volatilisation compared to urea – so more nitrogen is retained for your pasture.
Four key benefits of SustaiN
SustaiN is a more sustainable nitrogen product than urea – giving you maximum efficiency for both the planet and your pocket. SustaiN’s unique formula will halve your volatilisation losses, which is great for reducing nitrous oxide emissions, and also creates better pasture yield.
Retains more nitrogen
50% less nitrogen is lost to the atmosphere by volatilisation, compared to standard urea. This nitrogen is retained in the soil, where it can be used by plants.
Grows more grass
Research shows, over a wide range of conditions, SustaiN gives you a 5% average increase in pasture yield compared to urea.
When you apply urea, you need just the right amount of rain to fall around the application to avoid nitrogen volatilising into ammonia gas. The active ingredient in SustaiN – AGROTAIN® nitrogen stabiliser – slows down the natural biological process that causes volatilisation.

All farmers will need to start reporting on their emissions by 2023. Reducing nitrogen lost through volatilisation is a key nitrous oxide mitigation strategy, so choosing SustaiN means you’re well on your way already.
