Plantacote Pluss 8m
Plantacote pluss is a coated controlled release fertiliser which, in addition to nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, contains magnesium and trace elements in every granule. This ensures an even supply of major nutrients and trace elements over the desired release time.
The high iron content of Plantacote pluss is crucial to good performance. Iron is essential for the formation of chlorophyll and is therefore vital for good foliage colour and healthy growth. To ensure high availability, 50% Security3 = Formula of success of the iron in Plantacote pluss is chelated as Fe-EDTA.
The nutrients of Plantacote pluss are released by a natural membrane process which is controlled by soil temperature. Declared release times refer to an average soil temperature of 210C. Higher temperatures accelerate the nutrient release, lower temperatures slow it down. The release time is unaffected by substrata type, pH, micro-organisms or level of irrigation. The reliable basis for growing high quality plants
Plantacote pluss starts to release after 2 - 3 weeks. Due to this specific mechanism the product is very safe to crops; there is no risk of salt stress, even after storage of premixed growing media for up to 2 - 3 weeks. Complete nutrient supply throughout the growing season
Release of nutrients from Plcntacote pluss is attuned to the physiological requirements of the crop. Thus, release of nitrogen is most pronounced during crop establishment and release of potassium is more pronounced during the later stages.
