The Osmocote Advantage
Scotts’ patented Osmocote technology is the difference.
Scotts’ patented release technologies provide plants with steady nutrition they need for vigorous, even growth, beautiful color and optimum health throughout the growth cycle. Osmocote consists of a patented biodegradable resin-coating technology that ensures the controlled release of the encapsulated fertilizers. Each prill contains a complete balance of nitrogen-phosphorous-potassium nutrition.
Osmocote is formulated to deliver consistency.
Each Osmocote prill is homogeneous, which facilitates uniform, consistent feeding to your plants. Osmocote will help you get healthy, even results. When water penetrates the Osmocote coating, the nutrients dissolve inside the prill, and are then released through the coating for a controlled delivery of nutrition that promotes healthy plant growth. Plus, since one application will last an entire season, using Osmocote will save you time and money.
Scotts is the pioneer in the development of controlled, coated and patterned release fertilizers.
Scotts has decades of rigorous field testing to prove the effectiveness of Osmocote nutrition. Scotts researchers have proven this with thousands of plant species in various climates around the world. Research has shown that temperature most closely correlates to plant growth. Therefore, using Osmocote controls nutrient release rates with minimal waste. When temperatures cool, minimal plant growth corresponds to minimal Osmocote release. As temperatures warm, the plant growth increases, as does the Osmocote release. This process allows the plant to utilize the majority of the nutrients, leaving little, if any, waste.
