Osmocote Exact Standard
Osmocote Exact Standard combines safety, consistency, longevity and patterned release. This 3rd generation of controlled release fertilizers allows real control over the nutrient supply to the plant as the release of nutrients is matched by the plant’s needs due to patterned release.
Osmocote Exact Standard is the best choice for plants that have equal nutrient demands throughout the entire growing cycle. The target crops are evergreens and deciduous shrubs. It is also ideal when no more than one release pattern can be applied.
- Safety: highest possible safety, controlled release and high level of all essential trace elements. Color-coded for longevity to avoid mistakes.
- Consistency: very consistent product, every bag of product gives identical results, excellent quality control exceeding all industry standards.
- Patterned release: available in various release patterns exactly tailored to crop requirements, to provide optimal plant growth. Very efficient and therefore environmentally friendly.
Osmocote Exact Standard with its regular and continuous release is the best product for almost all circumstances, making it the preferred product in the market.
Its regular release pattern is ideal for fast-growing conifers and evergreens. Osmocote Exact Standard is especially suitable for late pottings with good growing plant material and short crop cycles.
The longevity of Osmocote Exact Standard is affected by temperature. (Product longevity is determined at 21ºC)
