This product for woody ornamentals, flowering trees, shrubs, vines and perennials is intended as a topdress but can also be incorporated into the soil for woody ornamentals, trees and perennials. Contains only ammoniacal and nitrate nitrogen. Contains NO urea. Product is 81% polymer coated and contains 90% of the nitrogen as polymer coated nitrogen. Includes micro nutrients. 19% uncoated fertilizer for quick growth and greenup. Florikote is a high-performance, polymer coated, fertilizer technology activated by moisture. The speed of release is only affected by soil temperature. After application, these Controlled Release Fertilizers release the nutrients they need when they need them. They will outperform other controlled release fertilizers both in consistency and longevity without dumping, because of its unique polymer coating. Nutrient release is not affected by media type or pH. Florikote Controlled Release Fertilizer has a patented dual reactive layer polymer coating process developed in 2004 in conjunction with the Space Alliance Outreach Program administered by NASA. A smooth exterior coating with no breaks or fissures insures a predictable release. Florikote fertilizers have a release period that is benchmarked to 77° F average soil temperatures so they can maintain their integrity and last the stated period of release, even in climates of extreme heat and rainfall. Plants and turf are healthier when they receive a consistent source of nutrient. Florikote breaks the feast or famine cycle of other conventional and inferior slow release technologies, ensuring that nutrients remain available to your plants and are not leached into the environment. Ideal for incorporation with growing media or as a topdressing. All products listed are calibrated for the Midwest.
