Enhanced Efficiency Fertilizer Advantages:

Fewer Fertilizer Applications

  • Helps to reduce overall fertilizer expenses, by saving money on equipment costs
  • Eases the frustration of scheduling applications in high-use areas, and limits visibility when fertilizing those areas
  • Allows for optimized labor allocation
    • Less time fertilizing frees up crews to complete other value-added tasks
  • By applying controlled-release, slow-release and stabilized nitrogen enhanced efficiency fertilizers (EEFs), nitrogen (N) use can be reduced by up to 40% when compared to conventional fertilizers like urea and ammonium sulfate
    • Saves money and helps to efficiently manage the use of this valued fertilizer resource
  • Responsible N utilization helps to support environmental initiatives that may be in place


“Any time I can get better utilization of nitrogen and not allow it to become volatile or leach, that’s a good thing.”

Brad Johnson, Lawn America


Optimum Nutrient Plant Uptake

  • Minimizes growth flushes, reducing unplanned mowing and clippings/hardscape clean-up
  • Consistent and reliable nutrient delivery minimizes the feast/famine cycle that can cause stress; sports fields can be more tolerant to weeds and diseases, and recover more quickly from the wear and tear of ongoing activity
    • Efficiently works to promote sports field appearance and playability, while reducing the need for additional turfgrass maintenance products that may have to be purchased and applied
  • Coating, technology, longevity and SGN options enhance the ability to tailor fertilization programs that meet budget needs and specific turfgrass nutritional requirements
  • Environmentally responsible with low potential for nutrient leaching, denitrification, runoff or volatilization
