Who is Nitricity?

Creating a better, more efficient way to produce fertilizer is no easy task, but it’s exactly what brought Nitricity together. Our company was founded from a desire to tackle GHG emissions and create products that are better for fields, farmers, and the environment.  


The goal is simple — let’s fix the way we fix nitrogen.  

Dr. Joshua McEnaney
