Do fertilizer spreaders damage the ESN coating?

ESN is designed to be applied using the same application equipment that is used for other dry fertilizers, including both spinner and air-flow type applicators.  While some effect of handling and spreading is unavoidable, granules can be damaged by improper handling, proper procedures and adjustment of spreaders will assure damage is minimized, and ESN retains its protective coating and performs as it should.  Where possible, air-flow spreaders should be adjusted to use slower air speeds, to minimize impact on ESN. 

Please consult ESN Handling Recommendations for guidelines on proper handling and application procedures.
