At Ekompany we are committed to creating sustainable fertilization practices for the professional markets. Our eco-friendly and highly efficient line of Ekote controlled release fertilizers offers many specific solutions that help growers increase their production and profitability, while decreasing the impact on the environment.
Reducing nutrient loss
Using a Controlled Release mineral fertiliser (CRF) greatly reduces the environmental impact because the nutrients are slowly released in a specific time-pattern matching the exact crop needs. As a result, plants are able to uptake all released nutrients and any leaching or volatilization of minerals into the environment is practically avoided. Given the fact that on average up to 75% of the minerals can be lost during traditional fertilization, both the economical and ecological impacts of CRF plant nutrition are obvious.
All of our business processes have been established with a focus towards sustainability. We have developed a patented coating process that is safe, consistent, more energy efficient than those used to produce conventional coated fertilizers. The organic polymer coating that we use in our fertilizer is made from renewable sources. This greatly reduces the environmental impact of our production processes.
Reducing waste across the chain
We minimize our environmental impact across the value chain. From the energy we use during production to the type of packaging we select for our products and the methods of transportation we use. Compared to conventional fertilizers less volume of Ekote is needed to achieve the same or better results, which helps to reduce the CO2 footprint across the entire value chain.
