Controlled release fertilisers (CRFs) for turf are designed to release nutrients over a longer period of time, which allows for a more targeted and precise application of nutrients to turfgrass. This technology is achieved through an innovative coating process that helps to regulate the release of nutrients. This ensures that the turf receives all the nutrients it requires, at the right time, and in the right amounts, throughout the entire growth cycle.
One of the main advantages of CRFs is that they require fewer applications compared to conventional fertilisers. This is because the nutrients are released gradually over a longer period of time, providing sustained nutrition to the turfgrass. In contrast, conventional fertilisers often require multiple applications to ensure that the turf receives adequate nutrients throughout the growing season. This reduces the time and labour required for fertiliser application, making it more convenient and cost-effective for turf managers.
Another important benefit of CRFs is that they reduce the risk of nutrient leaching into the soil and groundwater. Conventional fertilisers often result in an excess of nutrients in the soil, which can lead to environmental problems such as water pollution and algal blooms. However, CRFs release nutrients slowly and steadily, which minimises the risk of nutrient loss and leaching, and reduces the potential environmental impact.
Moreover, the use of CRFs has a lower environmental footprint compared to conventional fertilisers. This is because they require less application, which results in less fertiliser being used and fewer transport costs associated with it. Furthermore, the lower risk of nutrient leaching means that less fertiliser is lost to the environment, which reduces the potential for environmental damage.
In summary, the use of CRFs is a precision technology that can provide numerous environmental and practical benefits for turfgrass management. The technology allows for targeted and precise nutrient application, reduces the need for multiple applications, and minimizes the risk of nutrient leaching and environmental impact.
