Duratec® and Basacote® fertilizers are the most efficient fertilizers in the world

COMPO EXPERT has proven once again that using our enhanced efficiency fertilizers, are not only good for the environment (with less leaching and resulting pollution), but also increases yield and assist farmers to be more sustainable. Following is some results obtained using our Novatec® and Novatec® Solub range (stabilized Nitrogen; i.e. slow release) and NutriTrace foliar micro nutrient products.

With demands from consumers to be more environmentally conscious and with less land and water to produce more, can you still afford not to use our enhanced efficiency fertilizers?

Duratec® – Stabilised Nitrogen (slow release) and Controlled Release granular fertilizers:

DuraTec® is a combination of a controlled-release fertilizer with nitrification inhibitor DMPP (3,4-dimethylpyrazolphosphate). It is SOP-based and excellent for application in vegtables, fruits, nursery, landscape and intensive horticultural cropping systems. Thanks to DuraTec® innovative controlled-release technology, it has positive influences of enviromental benefits, e.g., lower emission of greenhouse gases and huge reduction of nitrogen leaching losses. On the other hand, the unique double N technology (nitrification inhibitor + coating) increases the nutrient efficacy, which leads to higher yields.


  • Unique double N technology – Stabilised-N and controlled release
  • Immediate and long-term effect of up to 3 months
  • Delays the nitrification of ammonium (NH4+) to nitrate (NO3)
  • Leads to a more efficient NH4+-based N nutrition
  • Environmental friendly: Lower emission of greenhouse gases and reduction of nitrogen leachinG
  • Energy savings by ammonium N nutrition

Basacote® Controlled Release Fertilizers

Basacote® is an advanced controlled release fertilizer technology for nurseries, special crops such as berries, fruit and nut trees and forestry. 

COMPO EXPERT has a unique and sophisticated coating technology where each fertilizer prill is evenly coated with an elastic polymer that controls water penetration and thus the dissolution of nutrients inside the coating. It is designed to ensure a long-term and consistent nutrient supply for up to 16 months. The Climate Adapted Release (C-A-R) Technology is linked to ambient temperature and guarantees nutrient availability according to individual plant requirements. The coating and release rates are not affected by soil properties such as pH, microbial activity, salinity etc. 

These characteristics prevent nutrient dumping and associated seedling mortality that is often experienced when fertilizers with inferior and brittle coatings are used.

From the above results it is clear that applying fertilizers with a higher nutrient use efficiency, is not only good for the environment, it also help the producer increase plant growth (and yield) while using even less fertilizer.

COMPO EXPERT is the logical choice in fertilizer to increase yield and profit without any detrimental effect on the environment. Call us today to carry you plant nutrient program into the 21st century.
