TRIOMF Fertilizer’s NitreXTM is an astonishing nitrogen-based granular TRIOMF fertilizer marked by its unique red appearance. TRIOMF NitreXTM is different to other urea products due to its specific qualities relating to urease and nitrification. The extremely precise properties of TRIOMF NitreXTM promotes excellent and effective distribution and absorption of nitrogen.

Benefits of TRIOMF NitreXTM?
TRIOMF NitreXTM contains an urease inhibitor that prevents conversion of urea to the NH3 gas phase, where it is volatile. The loss of nitrogen is therefore limited and TRIOMF NitreXTM is suitable for surface application. The urea does not convert to NH3 therefore giving the urea a chance to penetrate the ground, where it will not be volatile. TRIOMF NitreXTM - the red fertilizer - contains a nitrification inhibitor. It supresses the conversion of NH4+ to NO3-. The release of nitrate is more controlled and the result is less leaching of nitrogen. The high concentration of N means that there is a significant difference in the price/kg of N. This is in favour of TRIOMF NitreXTM when compared to other sources of N-fertilizer. Urease is responsible for the conversion of urea to ammonia gas. Ammonia gas then converts to ammonium. If urea is applied to the soil surface and it is not immediately followed by rain/irrigation, volatilisation in the form of ammonia gas occurs.

How does TRIOMF NitreXTM get better?
TRIOMF NitreX-STM is readily available N in the form of NH4+. TRIOMF NitreXTM has the benefit of an urease and nitrification inhibitor, and has a high sulphur concentration.

Applications of TRIOMF NitreXTM and TRIOMF NitreX-STM:
This product can be applied as a pre-plant and pre-plant mixture, top-fertilization and top-fertilization methods, need specific planter mixtures and as a top dressing (pastures).

TRIOMF PolitainTM includes a sophisticated, balanced, predominantly organic coating, glazing every individual fertilizer granule as an urea coating. TRIOMF PolitainTM has a complex composition of a unique ratio between micro-organisms, enzymes, organic acids, melanin, peptides, polysaccharide, vitamins and minerals. Specialised stabilisers and bonding agents are utilised to maintain product integrity and reaction time.

The effective use of TRIOMF PolitainTM leads to more effective nitrogen absorption by the plant with reduced energy consumption.

The specific characteristics and actions of TRIOMF PolitainTM include:
The stabilising of soil-pH, improvement of soil moisture and water retention abilities, promotion of microbial life for healthy soil, limited leaching of nitrate, conversion of soil nutrients suitable for plant absorption, acceleration of germination, improvement of root development, root growth and root structure and optimisation total plant growth ultimately resulting in increased yields.

Applications of TRIOMF PolitainTM:
TRIOMF PolitainTM can be applied as a pre-plant and plant mixture and a need-specific planter mixture.

TRIOMF LAPPTM is a concentrated ammonium polyphosphate solution that can be used as a starter fertilizer and/or a foliar fertilizer to replace other forms of phosphate fertilizer, including granular blends. TRIOMF LAPPTM ensures rapid and excellent root development and root distribution resulting in plant growth consistency and optimum nutrient uptake. The ease of application of this high-performance TRIOMF fertilizer makes it a cost-effective alternative to conventional granular products. The booster effect in TRIOMF LAPPTM provides the growing plant with nutrition for optimum growth. The producer can look forward to excellent and flourishing crops delivering high yield percentages.

TRIOMF NitroPlus is South Africa's first TRUE Homogeneous single granule TRIOMF fertilizer. This remarkable and total composition of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K) and other elements is a first-of-its-kind, now made available by TRIOMF Fertilizer. The TRIOMF NitroPlus single granule is perfectly round with balanced hardness which ensures on time release of elements. The composition of the TRIOMF NitroPlus particle is homogeneous, thus all ingredients are completely mixed and distributed and are summarized in each grain. All the pioneering technology of TRIOMF Fertilizer products is contained in TRIOMF NitroPlus. Unique formulations of TRIOMF NitroPlus can be manufactured according to soil and plant requirements. TRIOMF NitroPlus will soon be available in various tailor-made combinations.

TRIOMF BakgatTM is TRIOMF Fertilizer's new instant energy drink. It contains as a foliar, all the tonic ingredients and various micro-elements to maximise the plant's growth potential. Phosphate supplies energy, magnesium strengthens the plant's "factory" as the core of chlorophyll and with much higher levels of potassium than other products, we can say that the plant's turbo is boosted.

TRIOMF BakgatTM Broadleaf is TRIOMF Fertilizer's specialised foliar feed specifically developed for broadleaf crops like soybeans, peanuts and leguminous plants. TRIOMF BakgatTM Broadleaf contains nitrogen, phosphate, potassium, magnesium, sulphur and various micronutrients. The role of phosphate is to supply energy to the growing plant. Potassium is associated with the movement of water, nutrients and carbohydrates within the plant which stimulates early growth, increases protein production, maximises water usage and increases resistance to insects and disease.

TRIOMF BakgatTM and TRIOMF BakgatTM Broadleaf contains amino ingredients such as fulvic and humic acids, enzymes and super-concentrated micronutrients i.e. iron, copper, zinc, manganese, boron and molibdenym to promote enzyme reductase, protein synthesis, chlorophyll production, growth regulators, the development of new cells and roots, and to activate nitrate reductase. TRIOMF BakgatTM Broadleaf also contains cobalt in addition to the common amino acids and micronutrients found in TRIOMF BakgatTM. Cobalt is one of the most important micro nutrients for leguminous plants because these enzyme systems of the rhizobium bacteria are known to contain cobalamin. There is a correlation between cobalt concentrations and the fixation of nitrogen and root nodule development. Both products ensure an energized, strong and nutritious plant.

TRIOMF Mushe Maize was developed by TRIOMF Fertilizer as a crop-specific foliar feed to accommodate the unique needs of the maize plant. Taking all the tonic-like ingredients of TRIOMF Fertilizer's BakgatTM foliar feed as the base formulation for TRIOMF Mushe Maize, producers can be assured of the finest targeted plant enrichment.

Nitrogen, phosphate, potassium, magnesium, calcium, sulphur and various micro-elements team up to take the maize plant to its maximum growth potential. With phosphate supplying energy, magnesium to strengthen and with high levels of potassium, the maize plant is now supercharged.

Amino-ingredients such as fulvic acid, humic acid, enzymes and super-concentrated micro elements i.e. silicone, cobalt, nickel and selenium enhance root development in the maize plant and defends the plant against external stressors.

With TRIOMF Mushe Maize, the maize plant is robust and well fed with an intense healthy appearance, ready to offer the best in maize production and yield.

TRIOMF Triple TenTM (10:10:10) combines the best of conventional inputs with cutting-edge organics to provide a unique high production option for both fruit and vegetable producers as well as broad acre farmers. The developers of TRIOMF Triple TenTM (Nutri-Tech Solutions - NTS) promote an approach coined "Fusion Fertilizing", where the performance and sustainability of N-P-K and trace element blends are dramatically enhanced through the inclusion of potent organics.

Carbon-buffering and natural chelation are two of the processes involved in the boosting of N-P-K components. The N-P-K elements in the TRIOMF Triple TenTM formulation are derived from "hot-mix" N-P-K. "Hot-mix" N-P-K is manufactured using a special process developed by NTS. Three incompatible N-P-K concentrates are blended, creating a violent chemical reaction. The fusion generates such extreme heat that the mixture can "boil" for up to two days.

When the solution has returned to normal temperature, the three ingredients have formed a totally different chemical compound. This potent, new N-P-K contains low sodium levels, has a neutral pH and is non-corrosive. The negatives associated with the parent materials are no longer present yet offer an important gain: Plant growth is promoted by the energy released by fertilizers rather than by the actual fertilizers themselves.

The clean, powerful N-P-K chemical component is complimented by the addition of a complete range of chelated trace elements. This high quality N-P-K / trace element base is then used to build a totally new kind of fertilizer, involving natural growth promoters, micro-organisms, amino acids, enzymes, protein, colloidal minerals and vitamins.

Natural growth promoters, enzymes, broad-spectrum trace elements, amino acids, vitamins and micro-organisms are some of the components in TRIOMF Triple TenTM which are required for crop quality and maximum yields.

TRIOMF Tri-Amino is a high-performance, quick-release potassium / amino acid combines nutritional and fast absorbency abilities for instant results in stressed crops and also boosts growth and development.

TRIOMF Tri-Amino is a high-performance, quick-release potassium / amino acid combines nutritional and fast absorbency abilities for instant results in stressed crops and also boosts growth and development.

TRIOMF Tri-Amino is a complete organic, high-carbon, high-brix plant extract. Its composition and perfect ratios of all the essential plant nutrients make it a perfect partner to all inorganic (high salt index) fertilizers with the high humic acid content acting as an ideal buffer. A balanced nutrition program for any crop will take chemical, physical and biological aspects of the soil into consideration. Of these three, the "biological" component has traditionally suffered the most and is the one best addressed by TRIOMF Tri-Amino, when taking its full complement of 19 amino acids into account.

TRIOMF Tri-Amino will be used as a complete fertilizer. Of the trace elements – all of which are required in very low amounts – silicon (Si) is considered high and available in plants. Fertilizers feed the plant while TRIOMF Tri-Amino feeds the soil making both equally important for viable and sustainable crop production.

One can say that TRIOMF Tri-Amino acts as a booster for plant energy especially during a crop's reproductive stage. When it comes to maize, wheat, soya and peanuts, foliar spraying assists in building up a resistance to disease as well as bolstering yields during the reproductive phase.

TRIOMF Micros ZTM is a simple product which is mainly used to compliment other TRIOMF liquid fertilizer products. It consists of high levels of various inorganic trace elements, and will usually accompany another TRIOMF product in volumes determined by the requirements of a specific crop.

TRIOMF Micros ZTM acts an ideal enhancer to TRIOMF DynamoTM, TRIOMF BakgatTM, TRIOMF Mushe Maize and other TRIOMF liquid fertilizers, specialities and foliar feeds. TRIOMF Micros ZTM can also be used on its own with success as application rich in trace elements.

The administration as a liquid application in the furrows is essential considering the zinc at 50 000dpm. Zinc and maize go hand in hand therefore TRIOMF Micros ZTM can also help the plant in rectifying the inducing manganese and zinc shortages following a glyphosate spraying.

Another important use is the application as a foliar spraying for pecan nuts throughout the season due to its zinc deficiency. Together, TRIOMF Tri-AminoTM and TRIOMF LAPPTM work in perfect synergy. The composition of the micros promotes plant health considering the strengthening abilities of manganese, copper and zinc in the fight against fungal infections.

Also contributing to the functioning of the legume nodules are the elements cobalt and molybdenum which further highlight the necessity of furrow administration as well as one or two foliar sprayings during the season.

TRIOMF DynamoTM is a concentrated suspension ideal for soil and foliar-application, uniquely designed to accelerate germination and to strengthen the new seedling unlike any other product in its class. TRIOMF DynamoTM ensures quick and even germination and promotes strong root-development, equipping the young plant to have improved resistance against environmental stress and disease. TRIOMF DynamoTM contains elements crucial for the establishment of nitrogen-binding rhizobium bacteria. Micro-elements such as boron and silicon as well as vitamins, humates and amino acids serve as prolonged nutrition for the seedling prior to germination. Unsurpassed results obtained from clinical tests have proven TRIOMF DynamoTM to be the best start-up growth promoter and root development product available on the market.

With the use of a start-up booster like TRIOMF DynamoTM, the young and mature plant will require less conventional fertilizer, reducing production input costs. A growth support product developed in South Africa, when applied in the plant furrow, will aid in establishment and encourage vigorous seedling establishment. The use of TRIOMF DynamoTM can also minimise the necessity to replant due to unfavourable conditions that lead to poor stands. Where regular wind damage occurs on crops, especially on young plants, TRIOMF DynamoTM will aid through ensuring fast and healthy growth in the early plant growth stages.

TRIOMF Liquid LimeTM is a pre-plant soil preparation product which enhances and improves soil quality and soil health. TRIOMF Liquid LimeTM is easily applied directly to the plant-band. The application of TRIOMF Liquid LimeTM is essential to start a successful plant cycle. Properties and benefits of TRIOMF Liquid LimeTM include an ultra-micro-fine calcium carbonate slurry. TRIOMF Liquid LimeTM is anufactured from a high purity white marble (limestone) and contains an appropriate biocide. TRIOMF Liquid LimeTM is a colloidal suspension and reactive substance that disperses very effectively into soil due to it being colloidal. TRIOMF Liquid LimeTM has a 100% Relative Resin Suspension Rate, a 100% immediate efficacy in neutralizing surface-soil acidity in the plant-band and an intensity factor of 100%.

TRIOMF Liquid LimeTM is a limestone suspension which acts as a multi-purpose application product. The calcium carbonate component is super-fine meaning fast reaction with targeted application, whether used as a soil or leaf application. Calcium is needed in large quantities in soil because plants and crops need sufficient quantities of calcium for healthy growth and production. Therefore, TRIOMF Liquid LimeTM will solve the problem whenever a case of calcium deficiency is detected in the soil or if the calcium uptake is limited by factors such as low pH, acidic soils or improper nutrient balances.

TRIOMF Liquid LimeTM ensures highly reactive calcium application when applied to the soil due to micro-fine particle size, high neutralization capability and high-specific mass. Therefore, soil pH will increase in the immediate surrounds and plant nutrition will be optimized. TRIOMF Liquid LimeTM is very smooth, easy to handle and suspends well in water meaning it is well suited as a foliar application for calcium nutrition. From a plant nutrition point of view, TRIOMF Liquid LimeTM hits the target.

As the biggest and most experienced team of its kind in Africa, they have raised the bar and continue to maintain a standard of excellence. One needs to look no further than their track record which speaks for itself and boasts of numerous successfully completed projects in several countries spread throughout the continent like:

  • Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Congo
  • Zambia
  • Malawi
  • Swaziland
  • Cameroon
  • South Africa
  • Sierra Leone
  • Mozambique

The Parc Agro initiative at Bukanga-Lonzo, a first-of-its-kind in the DRC and one of the TRIOMF AgriXcellence Teams' biggest and most recent projects, is essentially a concept of agricultural land development with the implementation of the necessary infrastructure to support a self-sustained economic unit.


  • Soil classification
  • Soil chemical grids
  • Soil moisture management
  • Crop monitoring and production
  • Data processing

As the above suggests, TRIOMF has taken the lead when it comes to precision farming through the efforts of their qualified team who are passionate and purposeful in assisting the food producer in obtaining optimum yields for maximum profits. Farmers are familiar with chemical grid analysis, but by joining forces with the TRIOMF Agri Xcellence team, the producer has access to a complete, integrated picture. Integrated soil classification and soil chemical analysis together with yield information explain abnormalities found in cultivated fields.

With the completion of the TRIOMF "Accurate-Agri" cycle, the farmer is able to make informed management decisions according to his farm's strengths and limitations. Through these expert recommendations the producer can be confident in receiving the best return on his investment.


  • TRIOMF Accurate-Agri enables farmland to be analysed in order to achieve the optimum yield per hectare and to determine the potential for the season
  • With this information, the correct lime and plant nutrition can be administrated at the right time and place
  • Without TRIOMF Accurate-Agri, under or over-fertilization can affect profitability (Many farmers are likely to cultivate fields and even entire farmlands in the same way – areas vary and so would the cultivation thereof)
  • More than just mere soil mapping is considered when developing and planting grids and maps which can vary according to grain rotation
  • If appropriate implements and tillage for a specific farmland are used, fuel can be saved and yields increased
  • Risks and uncertainties relating to farming can be reduced
  • TRIOMF Accurate-Agri offers complete grain recommendations and solutions
  • TRIOMF Accurate-Agri takes the first step when new / existing areas of farmland are being developed by doing a full risk and profitability evaluation to determine the characteristics and values of the soil
  • TRIOMF Accurate-Agri provides practical charts of zones set out on the farmland which identify the necessary management required
