Give Nutrient Efficiency a Big-Time Boost
Formulated with dicyandiamide (DCD) infused stabilized nitrogen to reduce leaching and denitrification, LESCO® NOS (Nitrogen Optimization System) infused stabilized nitrogen allows you to get the most nutritional value from every application. With consistent, lasting performance tailored to those on a regular application schedule, NOS puts more green in your applications—and your wallet.
Increased Nutrient Uptake and Efficiency
By reducing nitrogen loss, nutrients are more readily available for uptake, delivering more nutritional value to your plants.
Improved Greening Longevity
Less leaching and denitrification leads to longer-lasting performance from the nutrients you put down.
Compared with other stabilized nitrogen products, NOS nitrogen stabilization system is fully incorporated to ensure every dollar you invest in nutrition is maximized. That’s why we say the secret to NOS is "Science from the Inside Out."
How it Works
DCD, a nitrification inhibitor, is fully infused into the urea while in molten phase prior to the granulation process. In the soil, this homogeneous infusion of nitrogen stabilizer slows the nitrogen conversion from ammonium to nitrate.
Since ammonium is positively charged and soil is negatively charged, this compound bonds to soil longer and releases nutrients at a rate that matches the uptake of plants. By keeping nitrogen in the ammonium state longer, it reduces the potential for nitrate to be lost through leaching and denitrification.

Consistent Nitrogen Delivery
Compared to fertilizer blends with standard urea, NOS delivers a quick release of nitrogen for fast greening while holding improved nitrogen delivery throughout the duration of the application—over 70 days.
Improved Nitrogen Uptake
By reducing nitrogen loss for up to 72 days, NOS delivers a 60% increase in nitrogen uptake by the turf.
