How does Osmocote®Plant Food work?

Each granule consists of a homogenous nutrient prill coated with a semi-permeable resin derived from linseed oil.

Moisture in the soil penetrates the coating and dissolves the nutrients in the granule.

Using the natural principle of osmosis, nutrients are released at the same rate the plant’s root system takes-up nutrients.
