Abstract: Nitricity has developed a technology that produces nitrogen fertilizer on-farm using air, water, and renewable electricity and will test this technology with the Center for Irrigation Technology (CIT). This project coupled Nitricity’s solar-based nitrogen fertilizer system with a Center for Irrigation Technology (CIT) irrigation system to evaluate if it would be possible to supply sufficient nitrogen for a small crop of processing tomatoes. Crops grown using the Nitricity fertilizer treatment were compared to crops grown using conventional fertilizer.
