The biodegrading process takes place slowly as a result the nutrients can not be washed away by water. Thus, Monpellets® has a long-term effect more than 10 months.
Sheep wool consists of keratin. Keratin is the substance that forms the horny substance from which all animal and human horn and hair substances are made. The compound is rich in nitrogen, potassium, and sulfur, as well as other important phytonutrients.
The keratin from which the wool is made goes into a continuous decomposition process through soil biology after a week. The plant nutrients released are immediately absorbed by the plant and implemented in the growth process. The decomposition process of the pellets takes place slowly so that the majority of the plant nutrients remain in the bound form of the keratin at the roots and cannot be carried away by water. With other fertilizers, in which the nutrients are not in such a strong chemical bond, this depot effect does not exist and excess nutrients that the plant cannot absorb are washed out. Florapell thus achieves a long-term effect of more than 10 Months.
