Nitrogen is one of the most essential elements for plant growth. Nitrogen-based fertilizers are fragmented in terms of chemistry which means that there is more than just nitric acid added to the fertilizer. The application of nitrogenous fertilizer to crop plants usually shows better and faster growth, thus leading to high productivity and yield.

There is a high demand of nitrogen at the root initiation stage of planting crops. The application of nitrogenous fertilizers to crop plants shows a better color and texture of the produce. A deficiency of nitrogen in plants results in a slower growth rate and lack of color and texture. The incidence of diseases and pest attacks are usually seen in such types of crops. Due to all these reasons, nitrogenous fertilizer play a key role for the plant's health. The major nitrogenous fertilizers for plants are urea, ammonium nitrate, ammonium sulfate, calcium ammonium nitrate, and ammonia.

Extensive investments are made in research and development to come up with advanced products, so that the maximum market share can be occupied by introducing new and improved products to meet customers' demands. Yara International ASA (Norway), Agrium Inc., (Canada), Coromandel International Ltd. (India), Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan (Canada), KOCH Industries Inc.(U.S.), CVR Partners, L.P.(U.S.), Snifter Holdings Ltd. (China), Bunge Ltd. (U.S.), CF Industries Holdings Inc. (U.S.), and Euro hem (Russia) are key players in the nitrogenous fertilizer industry; their recent development strategies were studied. 

In 2012, the global consumption market was led by urea, both in terms of volume and value. The global nitrogenous fertilizer market by type was valued at $98,627.9 million in 2012. The ammonium nitrate fertilizer market is estimated to grow at the fastest CAGR through 2018. The U.S. is a key market in the North American region for nitrogenous fertilizers. Grains & oilseeds controlled the largest share of nitrogenous fertilizer by application in 2012. Asia-Pacific holds a major consumption of nitrogenous fertilizer of grains & oilseeds. China leads the market in terms of consumption with the largest share in the global market.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

This revolutionary approach streamlines app development, reduces endpoint-to-endpoint latency, and allows apps to better leverage the enormous scalability of PubNu...
I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
