Controlled release fertilizers

The most reliable and effective way to make the availability of nutrients coincide with plant requirements is by controlling their release into the soil solution, using controlled release fertilizers.
This is accomplished by encapsulating fertilizer granules in a polymeric coating, employing Haifa’s Multicote technology.

When the controlled release fertilizers granules are applied to the soil, the coating acts as a semi-permeable barrier that allows continuous release of nutrients to the root zone.


Multicote technology, implemented in our controlled release fertilizers, offers:

  • Continuous release of nutrients to the root zone throughout the growth season.
  • Optimized nutrition in a single easy application.
  • Nutrient availability that matches plant requirements, with no hazardous excesses or damaging deficiencies.
  • Outstanding efficiency of nutrient use.
  • Reduced application rates.
  • Minimized fertilizer losses by leaching that also helps to comply with environmental regulations.
  • No contamination of groundwater.
  • No dependence on irrigation.
