No, its not the same thing! A quick google revealed that ammoniacl nitrogen is NH3-N, as opposed to ammonium nitrate (common fertiliser) which is NH4-NO3

 

Happy gardening,

it`s usualy termed as a percentage, for instance Ammonium sulphate or phosphate will have X% of Ammoniacal nitrogen, it`s simply a way of stating what Form the Nitrogen is contained as.

If exactly half the total nitrogen is ammoniacal nitrogen then it's probably ammonium nitrate, for pure ammonium nitrate it would be 35% total nitrogen.

 

Chemhero,

Do you actually think "NH3-N" is a compuond?
