Osmocote is a convenient, versatile, user-friendly fertiliser which promotes plant growth through a steady supply of essential nutrients, including nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Osmocote products are ideal for professional horticulturists and home gardeners seeking healthier plants and sustainable gardening practices.
Osmocote’s unique resin-coating technology creates granules that slowly release a balanced blend of essential nutrients. This unique composition gives plants a steady supply of nutrients, minimises waste, and reduces the frequency of fertiliser applications. The controlled release of trace elements extends nutrient availability and reduces nutrient loss.
The effectiveness of Osmocote’s protective resin coating depends on temperature, soil moisture, and microbial activity. Warmer temperatures cause the coating to expand and gradually release nutrients into the soil. As moisture increases, it acts as a catalyst to aid the release of nutrients. Microbial activity helps further break down the coating and ensure the nutrients are released optimally, in sync with the plant’s growth.
