Did You Know that Most of the Fertilizers End Up in the Seas and Rivers?
Indeed. Most of the fertilizers we use are leached away by rain and irrigation and end up in river and seas.
Ballestra proposition to reduce pollution of waters and carbon footprint of agriculture is the Methylene-Urea technology, a slow release fertilizer that can be tuned to the precise requirement of every different crop.
Methylene urea features reduced and closely controlled solubility in water.
Irrigation and rain cannot leach it away and nutrients are made available to the crops right when they are needed, with no waste. Fertilization efficiency is so high that 1 kg of methylene urea may substitute 5 kg of urea.
