Gal-XeONE™ and Nutricote® Controlled Release Fertilizer

Gal-XeONE™ was originally developed with the help of NASA and their Space Alliance Technology Outreach Program. NASA needed an environmentally friendly fertilizer that could be used to grow plants in space. Florikan had already worked with a timed-release fertilizer technology called Nutricote, which acted as a precursor to Gal-XeONE™. This fertilizer now comes in a variety of release periods ranging from 2–18 months. This allows growers to relax, knowing that their plants are getting the exact amount of nutrition they require with no need to reapply nutrients to the soil.
