You could sure make a lot of root tabs with a 5 lb bag of Osmocote and some gelatin capsules. Sounds very profitable.

That is essentially the same guaranteed analysis of osmocote plus. I'm pretty sure you can get them here for much cheaper, many people sell them here, including myself, pm me if interested.
