Recorded at Hort Science Live in 2022, Andrew Wilson - ICL’s technical manager for UK professional horticulture- explains how Osmocote 5 products deliver super-efficient and effective nutrient release.  

Osmocote 5 has been painstakingly designed and developed to overcome specific nutritional challenges faced by growers using peat-reduced and peat-free growing media.  Click on the link to find out how Osmocote 5 features unique nutrient matching release technology and an improved Optimised Trace Element Availability (OTEA) system to match plants’ needs throughout the release programme; the result are improved plant colour, health and growth as seen in our trials.  

In January 2023 we switched over to the Osmocote 5 range, which is now fully available to growers in Ireland.
