Basacote® Plus 6M 16-8-12(+2+TE) Controlled Release Fertilizer

Basacote® Plus 6M 16-8-12(+2+TE)

Basacote®Plus 6M is a fully coated controlled-release NPK complex fertilizer. The elastic polymer coating ensures an even nutrient release for 6 months. The climate-adapted release (CAR) technology is linked to ambient temperature and guarantees nutrient availability according to individual plant requirements. The coating and release rates are not affected by soil properties such as pH, microbial activity or salinity. Basacote® Plus 6M contains all nutrients required for healthy growth of plants. It is ideal for depot fertilization of substrate mixtures and top dress of bedding & balcony plants and other crops with short to medium cultivation periods. Mixing into substrate is recommended directly before use (maximum storage time: 10 days). The product lasts 6 months under temperate conditions and constant temperature of 21 °C.
