Enhanced Efficiency Fertilizer Advantages:

Fewer Fertilizer Applications

  • Helps to reduce overall fertilizer expenses, by saving money on fuel and equipment upkeep costs
  • Allows for more efficient labor allocation
    • Less time fertilizing frees up crews to complete other value-added tasks
  • 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 the institution may have in place
    • Making fewer fertilizer applications per year limits the disruption of maintenance crews and keeps green space healthy and available for use


“It comes down to the fact that enhanced efficiency fertilizers allow you to do more with less.”

Richard Bevilacqua, Eastern Land Management


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; green spaces can be more tolerant to weeds and diseases
    • Efficiently works to promote green space appearance and vitality, while reducing the need for additional maintenance products that may have to be purchased and applied
  • EEF technology, longevity and SGN options enhance the ability to tailor fertilization programs that meet budget needs and specific green space nutritional requirements
  • Environmentally responsible with low potential for nutrient leaching, denitrification, runoff or volatilization
