Controlled release fertilizers

The key to Precision Nutrition

Controlled release fertilizers (CRF) play a key role in improving yield, reducing nutrient losses and simplifying fertilizer application.

These products help to optimize the nutrient levels through the entire plant’s growth cycle. Younger plants are not harmed or stressed from excess salt levels, while mature plants have enough nutrition to last until the end of the growth cycle. A simple one-time application of ICL Speciality Fertilizers’ CRF delivers targeted nutrition that leads to uniform growth, optimum yield and resistant plants: maximum results with minimal effort.

The benefits of ICL’s CRF at a glance:

  • Higher nutrient efficiency through reduced losses
  • Higher or equal yield with less mineral input due to continual feeding
  • Less applications = less costs
  • Better for the environment due to reduced leaching
  • Enhanced crop uniformity thanks to controlled nutrition
  • Greater protection against early season “salt stress”
  • Enhanced crop uniformity thanks to controlled nutrition


Agrocote Max

Coating Technology: E-Max Release Technology™ is a reacted polymer coating for use on macronutrients and micronutrients to improve nutrient efficiency and plant utilization. The release of nutrition is based upon moisture and temperature, offering predictable longevities, even under the warmest conditions.

Agrocote S

Coating Technology: Agrocote® S controlled release fertilizers feature Poly-S®, a dual-acting coating technology that limits the solubility of urea and minimizes nitrogen exposure to the soil environment at the same time. When activated by water, this dual action begins metering nutrition as needed to optimize crop uptake and utilization during growth.

Coating Technology: The controlled release of nutrition through the protective resin coating is initiated and regulated by soil temperature. This precise metering of nutrition optimizes crop uptake and utilization. The amount of inefficient nutrition that escapes into the atmosphere or by leaching, is significantly reduced, minimizing the environmental impact.
