Plantacote® is developed and still manufactured in Germany. The state-of-the art product sets new quality standards in controlled release fertilizers. This is valid for the nutrient composition, the nutrient release and the coating quality.

To ensure the crop safety, our products are subjected to the strictest quality controls. Plantacote® is manufactured from selected and high-quality raw materials. The raw granule is subjected to strict chemical and physical controls before being released for coating.

Each Plantacote® fertilizer granule contains all of the essential nutrients for optimal plant growth. This ensures a homogenous distribution of all nutrients in the growing media.

The coating process is computer-monitored and any irregularities are reported if the strictly set limits are exceeded. Before a batch (approx. 500 kg of the coated product) is released for bag-filling, it goes through an extensive control test in the laboratory. Using a specially developed method the ‘Hot water test’ (European standard), the coating quality of each batch is tested and compared with the quality requirements. Within only 20 hours in boiling water, the rapid lab test provides a distinct assessment of the release characteristic. The diagram shows the narrow release limits (coloured areas) of selected longevities of Plantacote®.

In addition to testing in our own laboratories, the Plantacote® products are also tested by the federal Institute for Materials Testing (BAM) for their hazardous substance potential. All Plantacote® products are classified as type CIII fertilizers and are therefore not hazardous substances. This quality feature means problem-free transport and storage of Plantacote® for distributors and users.
