An accurate nutrition is essential for increased height and stem diameter of forest trees.
At planting time and during the initial year of the trees is even more so.
Haifa’s Multicote™ Agri is an advanced controlled release fertilizers, designed to feed forest trees over months, boosting growth and eliminating mortality of young plants. With maximum flexibility in nutritional composition and release profile, Multicote™ Agri is an ideal solution for any plantation. Based on Haifa’s polymer coating technology, Multicote™ Agri releases nutrients to the soil in a gradual manner, according to plant’s requirements. This prevents leaching of nutrients, thus improving nutrient use efficiency and allowing reduced application rates.

Application of Multicote™ Agri has become a common practice in forest trees nurseries and plantations worldwide, offering benefits of superior growth results and simple management:
only single application of Multicote™ Agri at planting is needed to feed the young plants continuously over months, enhancing establishment and considerably improving survival rates. As no repeated applications are needed, Multicote™ Agri helps overcoming the problem of manpower availability in the huge forest regions.
Haifa’s Multicote™ Agri offers a whole range of solutions to suit optimal nutrition for plants grown under diverse conditions. Our nutritional solutions ensure better growth, minimized environmental impact, convenience and cost-effectiveness.
