Osmocote Coated Fertilizers

ICL’s Osmocote coated fertilizers have pioneered the ornamental horticulture market over 50 years ago. The organic resin-coated granules enable the controlled release of nutrients over time.

Plant protection & control

Plant protection products are preparations intended to protect plants from pests, diseases, and to destroy undesirable plants. ICL provides solutions for most customers’ needs, whether by formulating new compositions, active-ingredient releases, or integrated crop management programs.

Nutrient tablets

In ornamental horticulture crops, the use of resin-coated fertilizer tablets is a highly convenient and effective way to deliver nitrogen, phosphorous, potash, magnesium, sulfur, and micronutrients to the root, which ensures the regular blooming and flower formation for plants. ICL’s unique coating, made from plant resins, releases nutrients with an even pattern over prolonged periods of time.

Surfactants

In horticulture and gardening, surfactants act as ornamental plants wetting agents helping to uniform moisture distribution which allows a more even distribution of solutions applied to the pot. They also help pesticides stick to plants, making them more effective.
