Optimal nutrient release for your nursery stock plants over 8 to 9 months
Osmocote® Exact Protect 8-9M is a programmed-release fertilizer for autumn/winter pottings and salt-sensitive crops. Plus, there’s no need re-fertilize in the spring if you apply at the full rate. You will benefit from this advantage during busy sales periods. Osmocote® Exact Protect 8-9M can be mixed in the potting substrate or dibbled in the plant hole. Dibbling is only recommended for well-rooted liners (P9). Only use fertilizer applicators which do not damage the coating.
Ideal for autumn/winter pottings and sensitive crops, with a slightly longer nutrient release period than Osmocote® Exact Protect 5-6M
Better growth thanks to delayed nutrient release
Save time and effort during busy sales periods
How to calculate the granules per pot or container at the application rates below:

Total = 15 g/pot
The rates are based on potting substrates with max. 0.5kg/m3 base fertilizer and are general recommendations. For most pottings, no base fertilizer is needed. For tailor-made advice, contact your ICL advisor.

Osmocote® Exact Protect is a 100% dual-coated fertilizer; the initial release of nutrients is postponed in the first 1.5 to 2 months. It is very important to apply Osmocote® Exact Protect in the correct potting period. Depending on your circumstances, it might be necessary to slightly re-fertilize in the main growing period. Contact your ICL advisor for tailor-made advice. Trial first on a small scale before changing the rate, application or any other variables. As circumstances can differ and as the application of our products is beyond our control, ICL cannot be held responsible for any adverse results.
