A blend of nutricote controlled release fertilizer with minor nutrients for nursery and greenhouse uses. Every particle is homogenous, meaning N, P, K and minor nutrients are contained in each individual prill. Nutricote's coating is a pliable resin that provides very predictable release rates.
The release is based on the duration of Nitrogen release and is specified by «TYPE».
Each type of product carries a number representing duration of release in days. Product Types 100, 140, and 180 represent respectively 80% of the nitrogen contained in the product which will be released uniformly over a period of approximately 100, 140, and 180 days at a constant temperature of 25°C. Warmer temperatures will shorten release time and cooler temperatures will extend release time.
TEMPERATURE AFFECTS THE RATE OF RELEASE:
The rate of release of Nutricote is modified by temperature, a higher release rate under higher temperatures coinciding with the plant's rate of growth. Nutrient release of Nutricote is not significantly affected by soil moisture, soil type, soil pH or microbial activity in the soil.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Nutricote should be applied according to soil or growing media conditions and the specific nutrient requirements of the crop being grown. If the growing media is sandy, loose with good drainage (Low Cation Exchange Capacity), a higher rate of the product should be used. For heavier, clay type soils (High Cation Exchange Capacity), a lower rate of Nutricote should be used.

ADDITIONAL NUTRIENTS REQUIREMENTS:
Nutricote contains essential elements for plant growth in each fertilizer granule. The requirement for additional nutrients should be determined by soil and plant tissue analysis. For crops which require a quick initial source of fertilizer for rapid take·off, ii is recommended to add a portion of Nutricote Type 70 or a pre-mix of superphosphate, calcium nitrate and potassium nitrate.
Nutricote must be applied after the media is pasteurized by steam.
STORAGE OF GROWING MIXES:
Growing mixes which have Nutricote incorporated can be stored up to one month if temperatures are maintained below 10°C. Otherwise, mixes with Nutricote incorporated should be used immediately after mixing.
