Jun 2021. Controlled-release (CRF) and slow-release (SRF) fertilizers belong to the larger group of enhanced-efficiency fertilizers, which also include nitrogen stabilizers, nitrification inhibitors, urease inhibitors, and stabilized fertilizers. Controlled-release fertilizers are generally coated products. Slow-release fertilizers are noncoated products in which the nutrient release is uncontrolled but slow; these are mainly urea-aldehyde reaction products but also include other slowly soluble products such as fertilizer spikes and ion exchange resin fertilizers. Whereas the bulk of the market belongs to the stabilizers and inhibitors categories, CRFs and SRFs are used in much smaller volumes and therefore might be considered specialties.

 Although controlled- and slow-release fertilizers have been shown to have efficacy, their use is still relatively limited as they are much more expensive than the commercial fertilizers in the market. For this reason, they are used primarily in niche markets such as golf courses, landscaping, and nurseries and greenhouses. However, the advent of less-expensive polymer coating technology has led to increased consumption of CRFs in commodity (big-acreage) agriculture, especially in North America (the United States and Canada) and mainland China.
