Specialty fertilizers offer a number of advantages over conventional fertilizers. This includes higher efficiency, less labor intensive, and provide constant nutrients to plants. The nutrients provided by specialty fertilizers are completely utilized as they are released only in small amounts that can be easily absorbed by plants.

Specialty fertilizers are granular shaped that are used to provide nutrients to the soil. It is either applied as a coating to seeds or is mixed with soil prior to sowing. Specialty fertilizers control the amount of moisture contact with soil, and release nutrients that decrease the rate of uptake of moisture by soil as well as reduces nutrient loss to the environment. Moreover, specialty fertilizers also help reduce harm to crops due to ionic concentration. Further, specialty fertilizers are used as an adhesive to augment pesticide intake and are used as binding agents to prevent leaching of pesticides from crops.
