Entec Special is a compound fertiliser in the form of a granular product with a mean particle diameter between 2.0 - 4.8mm.
Although Entec Special is a very stable product that can be mixed with most other fertilisers, it is not compatiblewith Magnesium Oxide. Entec Special can be compatible with Dry Lime, but may also give off ammonia gas.
Segregation may occur when mixed with product with differences of particle size.
Refer to Compatibility chart.
Entec’s action is not dependent on weather conditions as it secures nitrogen supply whatever the weather.
Entec reduces nitrogen leaching and significantly cuts ammonia volatilisation losses.
Entec improves root efficiency and secures yields.
Used extensively to help limit nitrogen losses and assist crops to use nitrogen more efficiently.
Contains only potassium sulphate so it can be used on chloride sensitive crops.
Has a near neutral effect on the soil pH, which is important when banding the product.
Contains both forms of nitrogen; nitrate nitrogen and ammonium nitrogen.
Contains a full range of trace elements as well as magnesium and calcium.
Entec Special is a compound fertiliser meaning it has the same chemical composition of high-grade plant available nutrients in every granule. This ensures there is no nutrient segregation which produces a more even crop with better yields. All the potassium is in the form of potassium sulphate, enabling it to be used on chloride sensitive plants.
Entec Special contains both forms of nitrogen; nitrate nitrogen (5.0%) and ammonium nitrogen (7.0%).
As well as NPKS, Entec Special contains a full range of trace elements (Iron 500ppm, Boron 200ppm, Zinc 100ppm, Manganese 70 ppm & Copper 10 ppm) plus calcium and magnesium to provide a complete feed in every granule.
Entec Special has a near neutral effect on the soil pH which is particularly important when banding fertilisers.
Entec Special gives crops a more continuous supply of nitrogen and reduces nitrate flushes for more consistent quality produce. It is used extensively for market gardening, avocado, grapes, lettuces, melons, cucumbers and peppers.
Actual spreading rates will vary according to farm type, climate, productivity, soil type and crop type. Soil testing and fertiliser plans are available to ensure you use the right product at the correct rate. Call our Customer Centre for information.
As with most solid fertilisers, Entec Special can be stored over a season as long as it is kept in a cool, dry, well ventilated area. Store bags in a dry place ensuring they are tightly sealed.
