APEX


A unique line of nursery fertilizers designed for the full of a season

BEST Color Logo


Nurseries require a variety of unique formulations to meet their specific growing needs. You need long-lasting, controlled-release fertilizers that reduce labor costs and offer the ultimate level of application safety. With APEX® fertilizers, you get what you need in plant nutrients and nutrition throughout the entire growing season in any growing condition. Running a nursery operation can be unpredictable, your fertilizer shouldn’t be.

The APEX® line of fertilizers feature application specific formulations that incorporate GAL-XeONE® controlled-release technology. The coating process of GAL-XeONE® enables consistent, predictable nutrient delivery for up to 18 months, and APEX® fertilizers eliminate the need for top dressing on most plants.

APEX® delivers plant nutrients through a solute concentration gradient permeation process that is unaffected by soil moisture, microbial activity, and pH levels which makes it more consistent and reliable.

FEATURED TECHNOLOGY

GAL-XeONE®

GAL-XeONE® is a technology incorporated in most of the APEX fertilizer products displayed here.

The patented GAL-XeONE® reactive layer coating was created with support from NASA. It allows water to seep into the prill and then carry the nutrients out through a semi-permeable membrane and into the soil.

Crops thrive best and remain healthiest when supplied with continuous nutrition. Simplot GAL-XeONE® is a controlled-release fertilizer with a new, advanced polymer coating technology. It delivers optimal nutrients to the plant at a daily rate that matches a plant’s uptake requirements.

Simplot GAL-XeONE® provides gradual daily release of effective plant nutrients to match a plant’s uptake pattern from 2 months to 12 months. It limits nutrient loss from volatilization and leaching, reduces labor and logistics costs from fewer applications, and provides incremental value from improved yields.
