3D Basacote Starter 6M

Basacote® Starter 6M 16-25-6(+2)

Controlled-release NPK complex fertilizer, fully coated, with an emphasis on phosphorus and an optimal set of trace elements. For depot fertilization of potting soil, substrate mixtures or top dress and plant hole fertilization and forestry.
  • Controlled nutrient release for 6 months
  • Frost-resistant and elastic polymer coating material
  • Climate-adapted nutrient release – ideal for plant needs
  • High P content for a quick growth start and soils which are poor in P
  • Homogenous supply of macro- and micronutrients
  • Screened granule size of 2,5–3,5 mm for even distribution in the soil
  • Effectively avoids nutrient fixation in soils
  • Less leaching and low salinity
  • Supports the formation of a good root system


Basacote® Starter 6M is a controlled-release NPK complex fertilizer fully coated. For depot fertilization of crops with high P demand such as forestry plants (eucalyptus, pinus, …). The elastic polymer coating ensures an even nutrient release for 6 months. The climate-adapted release (CAR) technology is linked to ambient temperature and guarantees nutrient availability according to individual plant requirements. The coating and release rates are not affected by soil properties such as pH, microbial activity or salinity.
Mixing into substrate is recommended directly before use (maximum storage time: 10 days). The product lasts 6 months under temperate conditions and constant temperature of 21 °C.
