Prolong 18-6-18+TE is a fertiliser which will release over a 6 month period. Allowing the plant to draw on available nitrogen over several month period is far more efficent & reduces the amount of nitrogen lost to the atmosphere. By releasing slowly over a long period it reduces the sudden surge of top growth usually associated with high nitrogen products.

If you require a product which doesnt release for quite as long, consider 18-3-8 Slow Release

Understanding Fertiliser Analysis

Under the metric system the unit of measurement is a kg

Recommendations are given in kg/ha

A fertiliser with the analysis 18:6:18 contains:-

18% Nitrogen 6% Phosphate 18% Potash

So in a 20kg bag:-

18% of the 25kg is Nitrogen i.e. 9.2kg N

6% of the 25kg is Phosphate i.e. 0kg P

18% of the 25kg is Potassium i.e. 0kg K
