Macracote Fertiliser


Controlled Release Fertiliser Macracote® is a coated controlled release compound fertiliser, with trace elements included. The coating of biodegradable wax is tough and flexible, totally dependable under conditions of temperature stress and osmotic pressure.
• The unique coating results in high performance release characteristics at both low and high temperatures.
• The coated fertiliser releases Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium & trace elements in close proportion to their ratios in the granule.
• Uniform nutrient uptake results in a more vigorous plant with enhanced disease resistance, improved stem rigidity and longer vase life in the case of cut flower production.
• Can be incorporated into soil mixes or used as top dress or broadcast applications.
• Release rates are not affected by leaching, pH, soil moisture, soil texture, organic matter, oxidation/reduction potentials or by the ionic strength of soil solution.
• All Macracote® formulations contain trace elements.
• A range of 4 to 14 month release products are available as well as low Phosphorus formulations for use on sensitive plant species.
