How Eko360 Smartfert Works
Smartfert is a NZ scientifically proven control release fertiliser
Smartfert uses biodegradable polymer coating technology to encapsulate a urea prill.
The nutrients are released over time to the soil through nano pores in the membrane ensuring their release is in line with the plant’s requirement for optimum growth.
Smartfert’s control release of nutrients ensures less opportunity for nutrient losses through volatilisation and leaching, increasing the nutrient use efficiency of the fertiliser.
Fertiliser nutrients are encapsulated in a thin polymer membrane that has been made using biodegradable technology.
Soil moisture is absorbed through the polymer membrane liquefying the encapsulated fertiliser nutrients.
The polymer membrane is broken down into soil particles after the release of the fertiliser nutrients.
Fertiliser nutrients slowly diffuse through nano pores in the polymer membrane, at a rate controlled by the thickness of the polymer membrane.
