Agricom Ecotain

SKU#: PID00726

Ecotain works by increasing the volume of urine animals produce, diluting the nitrogen (N) being excreted, resulting in a reduced N load in the urine patch. Within urine patches created by grazing animals, Ecotain delays the conversion from ammonium to nitrate, providing plants with a greater opportunity to uptake N, reducing the potential for leaching. Having planted Ecotain, nitrification in the soil is reduced. Contact your local PGG Wrightson store or Technical Field Representative for further information and availability.
