How does Osmocote differ from other slow-release plant foods?

Compared to the top selling brand of slow-release plant food, Osmocote contains almost 2X the amount of slow-release nitrogen per pound of product.

Osmocote granules are nearly perfect spheres and uniform in size. This ensures that nutrient release works the same way with each granule and contributes to the consistency of the nutrient release.
Osmocote has a resin coating, a characteristic that's somewhat elastic. This reduces the risk of the granules cracking and inadvertently releasing nutrients during the packaging process or when the product is in transit to the retail store.
