Corteva Agriscience™, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont, Adds Easy-to-Handle Above Ground Nitrogen Stabilizer to the Nitrogen Maximizer Portfolio

INDIANAPOLIS — Today Corteva Agriscience, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont, announced the launch of a new above-ground nitrogen stabilizer. Farmers can now maximize their above-ground nitrogen with the new PinnitMax nitrogen stabilizer and help ensure urea and UAN applications get into the root zone. PinnitMax is available for purchase in the U.S. for spring 2019 applications. PinnitMax joins N-Serve® and Instinct® nitrogen stabilizers in Corteva Agriscience’s existing nitrogen maximizer portfolio. The addition to the nitrogen maximizers portfolio will strengthen Corteva Agriscience’s global leadership position in nitrogen management.

“PinnitMax addresses the need for better handling with above-ground nitrogen stabilizers,” says Tina Troester, Nitrogen Management Specialist, Corteva Agriscience. “There are many urease inhibitor products on the market and some of the most popular products in the category can be difficult to handle. Corteva Agriscience brings to market a new solution that’s user-friendly, powerful and rounds out the nitrogen maximizer portfolio for comprehensive protection of any nitrogen source above- and below-ground.”

PinnitMax prevents volatilization of urea and UAN applications for up to 14 days, helping to ensure the nitrogen gets into the root zone for optimum crop uptake.

PinnitMax offers farmers and retailers specific advantages and benefits thanks to the unique formulation, including:

  • The most powerful, gallon-for-gallon, above-ground urease inhibitor with an ultra-low use rate.
  • Simple blending, free-flowing applications and effortless cleanup—freeing up labor and processing time for a more efficient operation.
  • The active ingredient, NBPT (N-(n-butyl) thiophosphoric triamide).


PinnitMax complements the existing nitrogen maximizers portfolio from Corteva Agriscience by providing above-ground nitrogen protection in addition to the two below-ground nitrogen stabilizers, N-Serve® and Instinct®. All fertilizer types can be protected with this portfolio: PinnitMax for above-ground urea and UAN applications, N-Serve® for below-ground anhydrous ammonia applications and Instinct® for below-ground urea, UAN and manure applications.

“With the addition of PinnitMax, farmers and retailers can now customize their season long nitrogen applications with the full nitrogen maximizers portfolio,” says Tyler Patton, U.S. Plant & Soil Health Product Manager, Corteva Agriscience. “PinnitMax works above ground to help get your nitrogen to the root zone, while N-Serve and Instinct technology work below ground to keep it there.”

The Corteva Agriscience nitrogen maximizers portfolio features unrivaled technology to protect any nitrogen fertilizer used, helping to fully realize yield potential. The portfolio also has more than 40 years of trusted experience shaping the nitrogen stabilizer category along with the most extensive university research available.

In addition to the nitrogen maximizers portfolio, Corteva Agriscienceis committed to bringing value to farmers by building a comprehensive portfolio of nutrient management solutions and digital services that benefit soil health.

PinnitMax nitrogen stabilizer is now available for spring 2019 applications in the U.S. and will be rolled out to other geographies in the next few years. For more information, please visit or connect with your Corteva Agriscience sales representative.
