Product Description

PurKote is a broad line of Enhanced Efficiency Fertilizers (EEF) for turf and ornamentals that consists of a substrate (e.g. urea, MAP, potash, NPK, SOP, etc.) with a proprietary next generation polymer coating developed by Pursell Agri-Tech.

Analysis:  Varies according to substrate and coating thickness. For example, PurKote Urea with a 30 day release (at 30ºF/86ºC)  has an analysis of 45-0-0.


  • The coating is typically purple.
  • Release rate is driven by soil temperature.
  • SGN is suited to turf and ornamental plants, as well as some horticultural applications.


  • The polymer coating slows the natural processes of nitrogen conversion and volatilization, making nutrients available to plants over a longer portion of the growing season, which improves uptake efficiency (greater synchronization with the needs of the growing crop/plant) and reduces nutrient loss/waste.
  • Harmonious with 4R Nutrient Stewardship practices (rate source at the right rate, in the rate place at the right time).
  • Available in different release durations according to the coating thickness.
  • Different coating thicknesses can be blended together at desired ratios to further tailor the release curve to crop requirements.
  • The proprietary coating is thinner and more pliable than most other competing EEFs, and can effectively cover a wide range of shapes and sizes of prills/granules.
  • The coating is applied at lower temperatures than competing EEFs, allowing for the potential inclusion of biologicals and micronutrients during the production process.

Application methods:

  • Suitable for blending and all application methods utilized for standard urea.
