Yates Nutricote N13 Total + TE 270 Day – 13 : 4.8 : 9.1

$229.12 Inc. GST

Yates Nutricote N13 Total + TE 270 Day – 13 : 4.8 : 9.1

Yates Nutricote N13 Total + TE 270 Day is a controlled release fertiliser designed specifically for use on flowering trees and shrubs. It contains the highest quality NPK, with trace elements, in an advanced prill coating to provide superior control of nutrient release over 270 days at 25°C.

Yates Nutricote N13 Total + TE 270 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: Flowering trees and shrubs

Yates Nutricote N13 Total + TE 270 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.

Top Dressing

  • Evenly apply to the base of the plant, keeping fertiliser away from the main trunk or stem.
  • Water in well after application with a rose type spray to minimize water blast of prills from pot.


Mix well into the soil profile ensuring even application.


  • Release period is governed by soil temperature as shown below.
  • Nutricote should provide the entire requirements of nitrogen, potassium, and maintenance levels of phosphorus for the release period.
  • Use high rates for fast-draining soils or mixes of low fertility and for species that are fast-growing and watered frequently.
  • Use medium rates when:
    • Using on sensitive crops
    • Soil temperatures are very high
    • Liquid feeding two to three times per week

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.

  • Yates Nutricote N13 Total + TE 270 Day – 13 : 4.8 : 9.1 - 25kg
  • The release rate of Yates Nutricote N13 Total + TE 270 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 10°C 15°C 20°C 25°C 30°C 35°C
    Release Time (days) 800 600 400 270 180 125
