Gelatin in Fertilisers

Due to its adhesive effect and reduction of surface tension the technical gelatine hydrolysate (GELITA TEC) manufactured by the GELITA Group is used extensively as leaf fertilizer. Due to the slow degra-dation of amino acids, the precisely adjusted nitrogen concentration is made available over a longer period of time; this favors the metabolism of the plants treated. Specially selected gelatines and gelatine hydrolysates are also used a biologically degradable binding agents in the manufacture of fertilizer pellets.
