Advantages
  • Safety: highest possible safety, controlled release and high level of all essential trace elements. Color-coded for longevity to avoid mistakes.
  • Consistency: very consistent product, every bag of product gives identical results, excellent quality control exceeding all industry standards.
  • Patterned release: available in various release patterns exactly tailored to the crop requirements, to provide optimal plant growth. Very efficient and therefore environmentally friendly.
Directions for use

Osmocote Exact Lo.Start has been developed especially for slow-growing conifers and salt sensitive crops. Nutrient release with Osmocote Exact Lo.Start is relatively low at the start. It is ideal for situations where a slow start is required, such as slow rooting young plants and early potting in tunnels. Osmocote Exact Lo.Start 16-18 M is also suitable for warm climates.

The longevity of Osmocote Exact Lo.Start 16-18M is affected by temperature. (Product longevity is determined at 21ºC)

16ºC 21ºC 26ºC
20-22M 16-18M 12-14M

Store under dry conditions. Partly used or damaged bags should be closed well.

Attention

The above mentioned recommended rates are based on unfertilized substrates. Please be aware that these are general recommendations. Specific situations such as use in tunnels or greenhouses, autumn or winter pottings or specific climate conditions require adjustments. Contact your ICL Specialty Fertilizers advisor for more detailed advice.

Trial first on a small scale before rate, application or other changes in your cultural practices are implemented. As circumstances can differ and as the application of our products is beyond our control, ICL Specialty Fertilizers cannot be made responsible for any negative results.

Osmocote Exact, the 3rd generation of controlled release fertilizers, combines safety, consistency and patterned release. Different plants have different nutritional requirements and therefore need coated fertilizers who do not only guarantee longevity but also release pattern. Osmocote Exact closely follows plant growth, making the product not only very efficient but also very safe.
