Like every Osmocote innovation, Osmocote 5 has undergone rigorous testing in various locations across the globe prior to its introduction. ICL conducted multiple field trials in Europe and even Australia. The trials were carried out in different ways, climatic conditions, using different crops, potting mixtures, longevities, application methods and rates. Independent European research stations and demo trials at growers have validated the results gathered in the trials at our own field-trial stations.

Everyone agrees: Osmocote 5 offers big impact!
