Urea Ammonium Nitrate Solutions (UAN)
 
UAN is a liquid fertilizer and, unlike ammonia, is odorless and does not require refrigeration or pressurization for transportation or storage. UAN is produced by combining liquid urea, liquid ammonium nitrate (AN) and water. The nitrogen content of UAN ranges from 28% to 32% by weight. (Unless we state otherwise, all references to UAN assume a 32% nitrogen content). Because of its high water content, UAN is relatively expensive to transport, making it largely a regionally distributed product.
 
UAN can be applied to crops directly or mixed with crop protection products, permitting the application of several materials simultaneously, reducing energy and labor costs and accelerating field preparation for planting. UAN may be applied from ordinary tanks and trucks and sprayed or injected into the soil, or applied through irrigation systems. In addition, UAN may be applied throughout the growing season, providing significant application flexibility. Due to its stability, UAN may be used for no-till row crops where fertilizer is spread on the surface of the soil.
 
In 2008 we produced and sold approximately 2.0 million tons of UAN.
