Koch Turf & Ornamental Nitamin
NITAMIN® targeted foliar nitrogen (N) is a patented, liquid nutrient source. It is designed to make some of the N immediately available for quick green-up, while reserving the rest for a steady supply of N to the turfgrass. NITAMIN® foliar fertilizer has a high N content—yet a lower salt index than a straight urea solution—which adds a critical margin of performance, efficiency and safety.
SOLUBLE METHYLENE UREA TECHNOLOGY
Contains a combination triazone, methylene urea and un-reacted urea components.
Patented formulation includes humectant properties which prevent rapid drying and crystallization on the leaf surface, allowing more N to be absorbed
• 40% lower salt index than urea solution
Transforms into plant-available N by enzymes in the leaf tissue
The fertilizer that makes its way into the soil helps supply N to support turfgrass growth at a consistent rate
Enhances the development of a deep root system to help promote turfgrass performance throughout the growing cycle
Golf course superintendents and turfgrass managers apply NITAMIN® fertilizer to help improve plant growth and appearance for months without the need for re-application. Plus, this flexible technology provides another option to help customize your fertility programs.
Applied directly to the leaf surface for rapid absorption and green-up
Effective in both warm- and cool-season grasses
Excellent safety, low burn potential
Compatible with many turfgrass protection products
Promotes a denser composition and root system

Nitrate-N (mg) in leachate collected from a Bermudagrass USGA green at the FLREC in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Both NITAMIN® 30L and urea were applied in 4 split applications at 0.5 lb. N/1000 ft.2 every two weeks for a total of 2.0 lbs. N/1000 ft.2. Application dates: 5/23, 6/6, 6/21 and 7/5.
See why NITAMIN® is more effective than a standard urea solution. Although these two solutions were applied to a broadleaf plant, the explanation and visual comparisons are equally relevant when applications are made to turfgrass.
