EuroChem’s partnership with Florikan helps to fulfill its desire to grow EuroChem’s portfolio of enhanced efficiency fertilizers. As such, Florikan will exclusively coat EuroChem suNkiss Balance™ 21-0-21 premium fertilizer, producing the world’s first homogenous high-analysis potassium and nitrogen controlled-released fertilizer for broad scale agriculture.
