The organic liquids are plant-based and vegan, and the organic granulated line is devoid of animal manure and sediment, resulting in the absence of foul odors; particular products from both lines are suitable for use in bio-cultivated crops. As of 2023, Mivena CRF brands will be manufactured using "Durable CRF," a reintroduced, one-of-a-kind low-start and high-end release technology. Biodegradable and the most robust CRF (Controlled Release Fertilizer) technology, this Durable CRF technology has been validated in international trials. Durable® CRF Technology, the next iteration of CRF, offers the following benefits: a biodegradable coating and a distinctive low-start and high-end release mechanism. Due to the absence of edema and granule leakage (the most robust CRF), release is determined solely by temperature. At elevated temperatures, exponential release does not occur.
