Duo Maxx Proven to Slow Nitrogen Transformation
With the increase in fertilizer prices we have seen over the past 12 months, it is essential growers protect their 2021 investments. Adding a stabilizer to a dry or liquid fertilizer will help ensure farmers’ nitrogen investment will not go down the drain.
Our Duo Maxx technology is intended for treatment of incorporated liquid and granular fertilizer blends with N but can also be used on surface-applied P and K. It is a combination of our patented phenolic binding compound, MPPA, nitrogen stabilizer, and our patented Duo Complex. It also contains the LCN Complex, which is a combination of NBPT, DCD and our Rhizovit plant extract, designed to slow nitrogen transformation.
See below the latest laboratory test results of the effect of Duo Maxx on preventing ammonia volatilization, N leaching, and runoff.

Effect of Duo Maxx on Nitrogen Runoff Events
Results of N runoff study comparing no fertilizer (untreated), DAP and Duo Maxx with DAP under laboratory conditions. The numbers on the x-axis represent two simulated rain events of 2L/min for 3 minutes in an automatic spray cabinet. (CMI, 2020)
Effect of Duo Maxx on Nitrogen Leaching
Effect of Duo Maxx on N leaching at various times following urea application. A lysimeter was placed under a capture basin in order to quantify amounts of N found in the leachates from the solution. (CMI, 2018)
