Enhanced Efficiency Fertilizer Advantages:

Fewer Fertilizer Applications

  • Helps to reduce overall fertilizer expenses, by saving money on fuel and equipment upkeep costs
  • Allows for more efficient labor allocation
    • Less time fertilizing frees up crews to complete other value-added tasks
  • Applying controlled-release, slow-release and stabilized nitrogen enhanced efficiency fertilizers (EEFs), nitrogen (N) use can be reduced by up to 40% when compared to conventional fertilizers like urea and ammonium sulfate
    • Saves money and helps to efficiently manage the use of this valued fertilizer resource
  • Responsible N utilization helps to support environmental initiatives the institution may have in place
    • Making fewer fertilizer applications per year limits the disruption of maintenance crews and keeps green space healthy and available for use

Optimum Nutrient Plant Uptake

  • Minimizes growth flushes, reducing unplanned mowing and clippings/hardscape clean-up
  • Consistent and reliable nutrient delivery minimizes the feast/famine cycle that can cause stress; green spaces can be more tolerant to weeds and diseases
    • Efficiently works to promote green space appearance and vitality, while reducing the need for additional maintenance products that may have to be purchased and applied
  • EEF technology, longevity and SGN options enhance the ability to tailor fertilization programs that meet budget needs and specific green space nutritional requirements
  • Environmentally responsible with low potential for nutrient leaching, denitrification, runoff or volatilization
