The Basacote® Technology ■ Each fertilizer prill is evenly coated with an elastic polymer that controls water penetration and thus the dissolution of nutrients inside the coating. ■ After application, moisture slowly penetrates through the pores of the coating, dissolving the nutrients which then dissipate into the soil by osmosis and diffusion. The coating thickness determines the rate at which water can absorb into the granule, and the rate at which nutrients can diffuse out. ■ The coating ensures a controlled nutrient release over 3, 6, 9, 12 or 16 months. ■ All micronutrients (B, Cu, Fe, Mn, Mo, Zn) are supplied in every granule, mainly placed directly under coating layer.
