Trident a finalist for New Product of the Year

Trident a finalist for New Product of the Year

To qualify for this recognition, each of the 10 products had to be available for stocking for the 2021 season or preorders.

Verdesian Life Sciences’ Trident™ nitrogen stabilizing solution product was named one of 10 finalists for The Scoop/Farm Journal’s “2021 New Product of the Year.” The winner will be chosen by vote; the deadline to vote is January 1, 2022.

To qualify for this recognition, each of the 10 products had to be available for stocking for the 2021 season or preorders and be specifically focused for use or sale by The Scoop readers—retailers, agronomists and crop consultants.

Here is what The Scoop said about Trident:

Verdesian Trident is a nitrogen stabilizer providing protection against all three forms of nitrogen loss– volatilization, nitrification and de-nitrification. Trident is made of Verdesian’s patent-pending combination of a co-polymer and solvent blend with active ingredients NBPT and DCD. With three formulations (Trident, Trident V and Trident N), the product can be blended with UAN or urea fertilizer.

In its initial trials, Verdesian says Trident gave a 4.6% yield increase versus untreated acres across 16 sites and 80 replications in 12 states. Trident has a flexible use rate of 1.5-2.5 quarts per ton of fertilizer. While maintaining performance, growers can lower chemical load per acre up to 40% compared to other NBPT-based products.
