By definition, all enhanced efficiency fertilizers (EEFs) provide increased nutrient uptake, while reducing potential losses to the environment. How they achieve those benefits, however, varies by technology. Investing time to understand these differences will help you to select the EEF products that will best meet your fertilization needs.
Only fertilizers that exhibit distinct performance characteristics can be classified as an EFF.
Environmental factors contribute to how EEFs release nutrients and the rate of that release.
Not only do EEFs more effectively deliver nutrition, they help improve the bottom line.
Under the EEF umbrella are controlled-release, slow-release and stabilized nitrogen technologies.
Studies show EEFs are more effective in optimizing plant nutrient uptake when compared to non-EEF sources.
Optimizing plant uptake reduces potential losses to the environment through leaching, denitrification, runoff and volatilization.
