Directions for use

For application in existing cultures, tablets should be pushed completely into the growing media. In hanging baskets place the tablets in the growing media in a circle around the plants. When drip irrigation is used, push the tablet in the growing media right under the dripper. After application and watering, the water soluble adhesive dissolves and the tablets fall apart.

Important to note
Osmocote Exact Tablets are built with an environmentally friendly adhesive which is water soluble. After watering the plants the tablets fall apart and are locked within the growing medium. This system prevents the roots from pushing the tablet out of the pot. Osmocote Exact Tablets are often applied into container plants and hanging baskets right before delivery in order to ensure there is proper nutrition for the consumer.

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 Tablets offer you the chance to give very accurate doses of nutrients in a simple fashion. Due to its cone-like shape, the tablet can be pushed down easily into growing medium. The tablets are available in 5 gram and 7.5 gram.
