ICL Specialty Fertilizers intros Osmocote Iron

ICL Osmocote IronICL Specialty Fertilizers launched Osmocote Iron, a granular product for plants that require additional iron and sulfur to maintain healthy, attractive foliage. It’s available for landscape beds and turf.

“Osmocote Iron maximizes nutrient efficiency for plants that are iron deficient for a variety of reasons, including high iron demand, high root zone pH levels or highly alkaline irrigation water,” said Kurt Brace, ICL’s ornamental horticulture marketing manager for the Americas. “Simply by topdressing or mixing Osmocote Iron into growing media, you can supply these plants with the iron they need for three to four months.”

Osmocote Iron is Ferric-sulfate-coated with ICL’s E-Max Release Technology, a proprietary coating chemistry used on a variety of nutrient components that are incorporated into controlled-release fertilizer products. It delivers a sustained supply of controlled-release iron and sulfur in a safe and reliable manner, ICL said.

“Using Osmocote Iron allows for continuous iron release in plant root zones, allowing absorption of iron throughout the growth cycle,” Brace said. “Because it lasts for three to four months, growers, groundskeepers and lawn care professionals don’t have to reapply as often. That saves them time, labor and, ultimately, money.”
