A brief review of slow-release fertilizer technology Slow-release nitrogen fertilizers can be separated into three broad categories. The first is “natural” organic fertilizer, with the N contained as a part of crop residue, animal waste, or other

floriculture crops by one of two methods. Many producers use a water-soluble fertilizer that provides macronutrients (N, P, and K) as well as all secondary nutrients (Ca, Mg, and S) and micronutrients. This fertilization method provides low concentrations of

Many commercial turfgrass fertilizers are referred to as specialty fertilizers. These products contain nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K), in addition to organic materials such as plant hormones, humic substances, amino acids (AAs), or

Nutrient use efficiency, particularly for nitrogen (N) fertilizer, is still low despite significant improvements in crop production over the last few decades. Development of slow-release fertilizer (SRF) evolved as a potential way to enhance
