Yates Nutricote N12 Micro + TE 70 Day – 12 : 4.4 : 8.3

Yates Nutricote N12 Micro + TE 70 Day is a controlled release fertiliser designed specifically for use in propagation including cell, plug and tube production. It contains the highest quality NPK for plant growth, with trace elements, in an advanced prill coating to provide superior control of nutrient release over 70 days at 25°C.

Yates Nutricote N12 Micro + TE 70 Day matches nutrient release with plant growth and growing conditions. During warmer periods nutrient release increases to support accelerated plant growth. In winter when temperatures fall, and the slower plant growth results in a decreased nutrient demand, the prill release rate also slows down. This facilitates a more cost-effective nutritional programme and also minimises nutrient loss through leaching.

Suitable for: Propagation including cell, plug and tube production

12.0 : 4.4 : 8.3

Yates Nutricote N12 Micro + TE 70 Day consists of small prills which combine NPK and trace elements. Advanced coating technology is applied to each prill that then controls the rate at which nutrients are released to match the physiological growth stages of the plant. It enables growers to produce the highest quality plants with minimised nutrient stress, dumping or root and foliage burn.

Once prills have been applied to the potting mix or soil, moisture starts to penetrate into the polymer coating. This causes the nutrients inside to dissolve and creates osmotic pressure within each prill. It’s this pressure that drives the gradual and controlled release of the nutrients. The rate of release is even and determined by soil temperature. Increased soil temperatures will result in increased nutrient release as plant growth and nutrient needs increase.

Yates Nutricote Micro can be applied in 2 ways:

  1. Incorporation through potting mix or soil, before planting;
  2. Topdressing, whereby fertiliser is applied around the plant on the surface of the potting mix or soil, at any time of the life of the crop.

Application rates can vary from 1g/l up to 3-4g/l of growing media. The application rate is determined by the longevity of the product used, container and plant size, planting time, the growing season of the crop and even the application method. Always refer to Yates Nutricote label recommendations before use.

Not suitable for plant species which are highly sensitive to phosphorus (P). For these plants we recommend Yates Nutricote Standard Purple (100 day), Pink (180 day) or the N18.7 Total range (Note that these alternatives are only available in a standard prill size).

  • Yates Nutricote N12 Micro + TE 70 Day – 12 : 4.4 : 8.3 - 25kg
  • The release rate of Yates Nutricote N12 Micro + TE 70 Day is based on an average day/night soil temperature of 25°C. The release rate at other temperatures is entirely predictable and is shown below:

    Soil Temperature (°C) 10°C 15°C 20°C 25°C 30°C 35°C
    Release Time (days) 145 110 90 70 55 45
