Abstract: An encapsulated particle includes a core particle. The core particle includes a fertilizer selected from the group of nitrogen, phosphate, potash, and sulfur, and combinations thereof. The core particle may also include herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides. The encapsulated particle also includes a polyurethane layer disposed about the core particle. The polyurethane layer includes the reaction product of an aromatic isocyanate component and a polyol that is reactive with the aromatic isocyanate component.
