Nitrification is the process by which ammonia is converted into nitrates, a process that occurs naturally in the environment.
As part of the nitrification process, bacteria normally present in soils oxidize ammonium ions from fertilizer to form nitrates, which can be taken up by plants, but are also readily leached from soil.
Electrical Nitrogen Stabilization inhibits this nitrification process, so that nitrogen is not converted into a form that can be easily lost from the soil, leaving more of the nitrogen that is applied available for the crop to use. This type of practice can help farmers extend the life of their fertilizer, ensuring that their crops will achieve higher yields without the waste of over-applying fertilizers.
Master switches allow the power to be turned on and off from the safety of the cab or the control box.
Whisker switches on the Bolt ensure that power flows only while it's in the ground, not when it's lifted.
Speed sensors apply power only when the tractor is moving. This assures that no electricity will flow while the implement is standing still.
Large orange safety lights automatically activate when the Bolt is running.
