Multicote™ Agri Junior Application Guidelines

The Multicote™ Agri Junior fertilizer granules should be placed in or right above the active root zone,

though avoiding direct contact with the young roots.


Planting of deciduous trees and grape vines

  1. Place the fertilizer granules on the bottom of planting hole
  2. Cover with 3-5 cm of soil
  3. Place the plant, cover and pack normally






  • Subtropical trees - after planting

  • Trees at 2nd and 3rd year

  1. Use a spade to make 2-4 slots around the tree,
    5-10 cm away from the stem, 5-10 cm deep.
    In hot climates, make the slots 10-25 cm deep
  2. Divide the fertilizer dose equally between the slots
  3. Cover the fertilizer granules with soil


To allow for continuous release, the granules should be placed within the zone wetted by irrigation.

 Sprinkler irrigation

♦ 2-4 slots will suit

♦ Make sure that fertilizer granules are applied in the wet zone

♦ At planting, fertilizer should be placed within the ridge

 Drip irrigation

♦ Make 2 slots next to the dripper line

♦ Place the fertilizer granules between the dripper and the stem, not directly under the dripper
