Having pioneered the controlled release fertilizer 50 years ago, our world leading Osmocote range of products are still evolving thanks to innovative new technologies. The most significant difference between then and now is the level of applied scientific horticultural knowledge. No matter which Osmocote Controlled Release Fertilizer product is selected, growers can rest assured the highest quality and return on investment will be delivered.
Osmocote is different to granular fertilisers and liquid fertilisers. Rather than releasing a quick rush of nutrients, it’s nutrients are released slowly over a longer period of time. Osmocote controlled release fertilizers play a key role in improving yield, reducing nutrient losses and simplifying fertilizer application.
Basically it means maximum results with minimal effort.
