Meth-Ex 40 and MESA Time Release Nitrogen in Greenview Fairway Formula Fertilizers
Together with IBDU, Meth-Ex 40 and Greenview's Mesa are time release nitrogen technologies and are the primary components of Greenview Fairway Formula Fertilizers.
Meth-Ex is made up of 4 types of nitrogen:
MESA — proprietary ammonium sulfate and methylene urea
For years, attempts have been made to control the release of fertilizer nutrients by coating them with inert plastic coatings. Unfortunately, these coatings add no agronomic value to the soil and are still widely used by other brands of fertilizer. Greenview Fairway Formula Fertilizers contain Mesa, which is a unique, patented nitrogen source that combines the color response benefits of ammonium sulfate with the staying power of Meth-Ex 40 methylene urea complex in a single homogenous granule.
On the guaranteed analysis nutrient source listing, MESA is listed as ammonium sulfate, urea, and methylene urea.
How it works
The ammonium sulfate is resinated with superior high-activity Meth-Ex® 40 Methylene Urea. As a result, the release of ammonium sulfate is effectively and efficiently controlled. This provides a consistent, brilliant appearance with virtually no burn potential. So you’re assured great looking lawn. And because there is no artificial or sulfur coating, the granule breaks down completely leaving no residual behind. MESA is the only nitrogen source that offers the synergy of ammonium sulfate and methylene urea in a single particle.
