LONDON, Sept. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Controlled release fertilizers are part of enhanced efficiency fertilizers. These are granulated fertilizers that release nutrients gradually into the soil. Controlled release fertilizers are usually coated or encapsulated with inorganic or organic materials that regulate the rate, pattern, and duration of plant nutrient release. Common polymer materials used for coating are polysulfone (PSF), cellulose acetate (CA), and polyacrylonitrile (PAN). Most controlled release fertilizers are used in agriculture and horticulture applications. Controlled release fertilizers are employed in the cultivation of cereals & grains, oilseeds & pulses, and fruits & vegetables. Furthermore, they are used in the cultivation of turfs, lawns, and ornamental plants. Growth in the global population coupled with the shift toward sustainable agriculture is expected to drive the controlled release fertilizer market during the forecast period.
