1. A controlled release particulate fertilizer composition,said composition comprising particles having a specific gravity greater than 1.40,each of said particles containing a urea-formaldehyde condensation product as a nitrogen nutrient source in which the molar ratio of urea to formaldehyde in the condensation product is from 1.3:

  • 1 to 2.4;

    1, and at least one additional solid plant nutrient or pesticide trapped with each of said urea-formaldehyde particles,said particles being substantially uniform from particle to particle in both composition and size, the ratio of the largest to smallest of substantially all said particles being less than 3;

    1, and substantially no particles having a size of smaller than 30 mesh,said composition characterized in that the initial releaseof nutrient occurs quickly and extends for a period of at least six weeks.
