Increasing Preference for Sustainable Agriculture to Boost Controlled Release Fertilizers Market in Asia Pacific

Controlled release fertilizers are granulated fertilizers and are responsible for releasing nutrients gradually into the soil. They are generally encapsulated or coated with organic or inorganic materials for regulating the pattern, duration, and rate of plant nutrient release. The most common polymer materials utilized for coating controlled release fertilizers include cellulose acetate (CA), polyacrylonitrile (PAN), and polysulfone (PSF). Controlled release fertilizers present numerous advantages over conventionally utilized fertilizers. These include reducing toxic gas emissions and enhancing agronomic safety, among others.
