LessN is a patented Nitrogen utilisation enhancer using world first technology.
By adopting the LessN system farmers can:
* LessN has proven to double the response to Nitrogen fertiliser based on the average of 53 replicated scientific pasture trials, and trial data for the specific rate of 40 kg/ha of dissolved urea (plus 3 L/ha LessN) compared to 80 kg/ha urea.
These trials showed that the same amount of dry matter can be grown by spraying 3 Litres of LessN with 40kg of dissolved urea per hectare, compared to applying 80 kg of urea (spread or sprayed) per hectare.

Spraying on urea has environmental benefits as well, such as reduced losses of nitrogen through volatilisation and the more rapid uptake of nitrogen, means there is less chance nitrogen will be wasted in urine where it could be leached.
These benefits of LessN, and more, are explained in detail in our LessN brochure. Click here to download the latest edition of the brochure. All details are accurate as at September 2011.
Using the LessN system and applying a half rate of nitrogen will also significantly reduce a farms carbon footprint. For more information on calculating your carbon footprint click the link below:
There is also a Cost Benefit analysis which details the potential financial benefits of adopting the LessN system whether applied by a contractor or self applied by a farmer.
