Controlled release fertilisers

Basacote®

Basacote®, the marathon CRFs, is a controlled release fertiliser for plant hole application. It is ideally suited for use
in forestry.

Download the technical sheet.

Basacote® is a controlled-release fertiliser for plant hole application. Each prill is evenly coated with an elastic polymer that controls water penetration. The coating thickness determines the rate of diffusion of the nutrients stored into the prill, ensuring a controlled nutrient release over 3, 6, 9 or 12 months.

CAR-Technology

  • Climate Adapted Release Technology ensures nutrient release in controlled by ambient temperature only, which
    guarantees nutrient availability according to individual plant requirements.
  • Release rates are not affected by soil properties such as pH, microbial activity, salinity, etc.
  • Prevents nutrient dumping and associated seedling mortality, often experienced with inferior and brittle coatings.

Basatop® Sport Mini

A mini granule controlled release fertiliser with good levels of Nitrogen.

Basatop® Sport Mini is a controlled-release fertiliser with good levels of nitrogen, in the form of mini granules (1 .0–1 .8 mm).

Download the technical sheet.

Basatop® Sport Mini is suitable for:

  • Sports fields & lawns
  • Golf tees & green surrounds
  • Recreational turf areas
  • Potting mixes—incorporation as a "starter" fertiliser and top feeding.

Main benefits

  • Two step fertilisation
    1 - Immediately available nutrients to provide a quick start with moisture influence.
    2- Controlled-release nutrients via coated granules, influenced by moisture and temperature.
  • Feeds for 8–1 2 weeks
  • High Nitrogen and I ron for quick "green-up"
  • Balanced Potassium & Magnesium for quality turf
  • Sulphur and Micronutrients.

Slow release fertilisers

Triabon®

Triabon® is a cutting edge compoud fertiliser that contains Crotodur®, a slow release nitrogen source which is broken down by soil microbes into plant-available nitrogen. Triabon® is ideal for incorporation in potting media, as a top dressing of containers or broadcast on crops / gardens and around plants, which makes it the first choice option for potting mix manufacturers and nurseries. It is the perfect match for Nutricote® as Nutricote® will keep feeding when Triabon®'s supply runs out.
