Osmocote® can help you grow bigger, greener, healthier plants.
Osmocote® controlled-release fertilizer is engineered to help deliver bigger, greener, highly-saleable and profitable plants, sooner. One application, either incorporated or top-dressed, will provide your plants with a steady, metering of N-P-K nutrients. This prolonged, controlled feeding, eliminates the feast or famine associated with conventional soluble fertilizers, and helps ensure an ideal level of nutrients for optimal plant growth.
Longevity is based on 70°F average soil temperature
Osmocote releases nutrients evenly, over the specified longevity, which is based on 70°F (21°C) average soil temperature. Shorter terms can be expected in warmer growing conditions, longer terms in cooler growing conditions.
How Osmocote® works:
- A. After application, water vapor from the soil penetrates the resin coating and dissolves the water soluble nutrients inside.
- B. The dissolved nutrients then gradually diffuse through the capsule into the soil depending on formulation and soil temperature.
The 3-1-2 ratio of N-P-K . 3 designed for longer term greenhouse and container stock, this formula is ideal for year-round feeding. It is also used for propagation and fall feeding.
