Applications

 

Agriculture

Phosphorus from Multiform™ Nutrients optimizes crop performance by providing plants with a more effective and efficient source of nutrients than conventional phosphate fertilizers.

Struvite’s nutrient analysis is 6-29-0, meaning it delivers 5 times as much phosphorus per unit as typical organic fertilizers, plus a healthy shot of nitrogen. Struvite is also 10% magnesium, the central element in chlorophyll that promotes a strong green color.

High value applications for Multiform™ Nutrients include vegetables, strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, melons, citrus, almonds, apples, berries, grapes, seedling trees and aquaculture.

 

Turf

Fertilizer usage for professional turf represents approximately 50% of the total U.S. consumption of manufactured slow-release fertilizers in the non-agricultural market.

Turf fertilizers are applied every 2 to 3 months at rates of 1.0 to 1.5 pounds of nitrogen per 1000 sq. ft. of turf area. Half of the total nitrogen is derived from a slow release source. 

Multiform™ Nutrients promote vibrant turf that withstands the wear and tear of daily use by promoting:

  • Rapid green-up

  • Deeper roots and improved root systems

  • Improved recovery and regeneration

  • Reduced runoff and nutrient loss

 

Nurseries, Horticulture, Landscape

Soils used in container-grown nurseries and greenhouses are designed to drain quickly and maintain maximum air porosity in order to avoid plant damage or loss due to water-logged conditions after heavy rains. These soils are synthetic growing medias comprised of composted bark, sand, fibrous peat, perlite, rice hulls, etc. They are low in nutrient content and have little capacity for nutrient retention.

Multiform Harvest is the perfect slow-release fertilizer to incorporate into growing media at time of planting; this provides a base line fertility during the initial 3 to 4 month establishment period.

The use of slow-release fertilizers in the landscape market is often limited to the incorporation of tablets, spikes and briquettes placed near the plant at time of installation. Their function is to enhance establishment during the initial 3 to 4 months following project completion.
