Major Uses

For ammonia (USEPA/OPP Pesticide Code: 005302) ACTIVE products with label matches. /SRP: Registered for use in the U.S. but approved pesticide uses may change periodically and so federal, state and local authorities must be consulted for currently approved uses./
/Ammonia/ is used in the production of ammonium sulfate and ammonium nitrate for fertilizers; and in the manufacture of nitric acid, soda, synthetic urea, synthetic fibers, dyes, and plastics.
Fertilizer, corrosion inhibitor, purification of water supplies, component of household cleaners, as refrigerant. Manufacture of nitric acid, explosives, synthetic fibers. In pulp and paper, metallurgy, rubber, food and beverage, textile and leather industries.
Preharvest cotton defoliant /Former/
Used in the manufacture of hydrazine, pesticides, and detergents
Ammonia, or dissociated ammonia, is used in such metal treating operations as nitriding, carbo-nitriding, bright annealing, furnace brazing, sintering, sodium hydride descaling, atomic hydrogen welding, and other applications where protective atmospheres are required.
Dissociated ammonia is used as a convenient source of hydrogen for the hydrogenation of fats and oils. Through the controlled combustion of dissociated ammonia in air, a source of pure nitrogen is achieved.
The petroleum industry utilizes anhydrous ammonia in neutralizing the acid constituents of crude oil and in protecting equipment such as bubble plate towers, heat exchangers, condensers, and storage tanks from corrosion.
Ammonia is used in the rubber industry for stabilization of raw latex to prevent coagulation during transportation and storage.
Ammonia is used as a catalyst in the phenol-formaldehyde condensation and also in the urea-formaldehyde condensation to make synthetic resin.
Used ... on grapefruit, lemons, and oranges to control fungal growth during warehousing. USDA has now requested that ammonia used as preservative in high moisture corn be exempted from requirement of a tolerance. /Former/
