German term or phrase: Sofortdünger
In a brochure about the manufacture of agricultural chemicals:

Aber auch angepasste Mischungen bzw. Formulierungen sind gebräuchlich, welche sich in ihrer Zusammensetzung hinsichtlich primärer Nähr- und Spurenelemente unterscheiden. Dabei müssen die benötigten Elemente im Dünger in einer bioverfügbaren Form vorliegen. Je nach Formulierung gibt es lösliche Sofortdünger, Langzeitdünger und Depotdünger.

Can anyone help with the correct term, please?
