Taking ornamental plant nutrition and nutrient release to a new level, ICL has announced the launch of its 5th generation Osmocote controlled release fertilizer.

Super-Efficient Nutrient Release

ICL’s Technical Manager, Andrew Wilson commented "These new Osmocote 5 products have been painstakingly designed and developed to overcome specific nutritional challenges faced by growers, who are using peat-reduced and peat-free growing media.”

“Extensively tested around the world, we are now looking for UK and Irish growers to work with to conduct nursery trials.”

Next Generation Osmocote

“Osmocote 5 features unique nutrient matching release technology and an improved Optimised Trace Element Availability (OTEA) system to match plants’ needs throughout the release programme: the result are improved plant colour, health and growth.”

“Put simply, Osmocote 5 safely delivers greater nutrient efficiency and effectiveness - which translates into improved quality plants as well as environmental benefits,” says Andrew. 

Full Product Launch

Growers interested in being among the first to try these innovative new 5th generation products, are encouraged to contact their local ICL Technical Area Sales Manager.

Following these trials, ICL is planning a full product launch in the UK and Ireland in autumn 2021.
