Scotts Introduces Four Controlled-Release Fertilizers
Scotts has added four new Osmocote Pro formulations to its controlled-release fertilizer portfolio.
August 5, 2009
The new formulations are:
- Osmocote Pro 17-5-11 (three to four months)
- Osmocote Pro 17-5-11 (five to six months)
- Osmocote Pro 17-5-11 (eight to nine months)
- Osmocote Pro 17-5-11 (12 to 14 months)
Scotts says the coated, homogeneous N-P-K prills deliver a more consistent, steady and sustained release than growers would expect from a blended product containing uncoated nutrients.
The formulations are available in a broad range of longevities, from three to 14 months, and the four offer the highest iron levels within Scotts' Osmocote Pro portfolio.
"These new formulations do not contain urea nitrogen, so it is possible to use them in covered operations as well as the more typical nursery, foliage and landscape applications," says Chris Buchheit, marketing manager for Scotts Professional's ornamental horticulture fertilizers.
