Controlled Release Fertiliser

For substrate mixtures, horticulture, tree nurseries and plant hole fertilisation

The Basacote Technology:

  • Each fertilizer prill is evenly coated with an elastic polymer that controls water penetration and thus the dissolution of nutrients inside the coating.

  • After application, moisture slowly penetrates through the pores of the coating, dissolving the nutrients which then dissipate into the soil by osmosis and diffusion. The coating thickness determines the rate at which water can absorb into the granule, and the rate at which nutrients can diffuse out.

  • The coating ensures a controlled nutrient release over 3, 6, 9, 12 or 16 months.

  • All micronutrients (B, Cu, Fe, Mn, Mo, Zn) are supplied in every granule, mainly placed directly under coating layer.

Key Benefits of Basacote:

  • Uniform (screened) granule size

  • Nutrient release is dependent on ambient temperature (CAR-Technology)

  • Frost resistant polymer coating material

  • Minimal risk of nutrient toxicity and plant burning

  • Supports the formation of well-developed root systems

  • Flexible elastic coating material
