(AP) — A businessman has picked a southern Indiana site for a nitrogen fertilizer plant that's projected to cost about $950 million to build.
Suppress toadstools by applying a high nitrogen fertilizer to your lawn each fall and spring and keeping it very wet for 3-5 days.
"The intent of the new ordinance is to ensure that slow-release nitrogen is used and to exclude phosphorous from any lawn fertilizers , except under special conditions," Pedell said.
Ohio Valley Resources LLC (OVR) filed an air permit application with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management Sept 17, to construct a billion-dollar nitrogen fertilizer facility in Spencer County, Ind.
"We are excited that our new plant will help to stabilize the supply and price of nitrogen fertilizers to support the regional agricultural economy.".
Tentative plans call for the nitrogen fertilizer plant to be located on approximately 150 acres north of Rockport.

In science:

An interesting point is the production of primary nitrogen at very low metallicity.
Effects of rotation on the evolution of primordial stars
Nitrogen abundances have been derived from resolved lines of the CN red system assuming the C abundances derived from the [C I] feature.
Carbon Abundances of Three Carbon-Enhanced Metal-Poor Stars from High-Resolution Gemini-S/bHROS Spectra of the 8727A [C I] Line
Nitrogen abundances for CEMP stars have been largely derived from CN molecular bands at 3885 and 4215 ˚A via synthetic synthesis (e.g., Cohen et al. 2006; Aoki et al. 2007), so our analysis of individual CN lines of the red system provides an independent measurement of the N abundances of our sample.
Carbon Abundances of Three Carbon-Enhanced Metal-Poor Stars from High-Resolution Gemini-S/bHROS Spectra of the 8727A [C I] Line
Lodders & Fegley (1995) also modeled the effect of C/O and pressure on the condensation sequence in carbon stars, as well as the effect of s-process and nitrogen abundances.
