Organic Fertiliser Range

ORGANIC PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Did you know that the world needs topsoil to grow 95% of its food?

However, based on some recent reports, nearly half of the most productive soil has disappeared in the world in the last 150 years. If this keeps up, we could lose our ability to grow enough nutritious food to feed the planet’s population.

But that is not the only problem. Being the foundation of basic ecosystem function, soil acts as a water filter and a growing medium which is very critical for life as it provides the habitat for billions of organisms, in order to maintain biodiversity, needed for the yield increase in different crops within a rotation program as well as supplying most of the antibiotics used to fight diseases.

People in the world of farming and agriculture

are looking to increase yields and grow more without damaging soil health and of course without impacting the environment. There is therefore an increased demand for environmentally friendly approaches to growing and maintaining soil or turf. With that in mind, we believe that our organic fertilisers are the answer to that demand.

 

Here’s What You Should Know about Organic Fertilisers…

Organic fertilisers are primarily derived from organic sources, such as animal by-products and/orb waste, plant and mineral sources. They are biodegradable, renewable and eco-friendly. What makes it different from inorganic fertilisers. In simple explanation, organic fertilisers works not only with the soil but also with the existing microbial population to feed your plants, while inorganic or synthetic fertilisers instantly feed your plants.

Since organic fertilisers are made from natural sources, it provides slow-released and consistent nourishment which can improve soil and turf health and boost yield increase, avoiding the environmental hazards of nutrients (e.g. nitrates, etc) leaching and contamination of aquifers. GrowGreen’s line of certified organic products offers sustainable input options to improve soil and turf quality and production while minimizing environmental impacts.

The Benefits of Using GrowGreen Organic Products

Our Organic Products; AminoOrganic™ Premium, AminoKelp Premium, Microbe Plus Kelp Premium and Xtend™ are all organically certified (ACO allowed input 4014). We use no hazardous chemicals and no high temperatures on our Organic products during the manufacturing process. The benefits of using GrowGreen Organic Products include:

  • Boost nutrient efficiency that is vital to building microbial activity which can increase the amount of nutrients for your plants
  • Preserve the soil with organic matter so that you can reduce its dependency on chemical inputs
  • Improve the quality of yields
  • Restore and maintain soil fertility to nurture plant growth
  • Improve the soil’s organic matter content to make crop more resistant to erosion
  • Help to make resource use more efficient by making use of natural raw materials
  • Reduce the risk of pesticides and minimise leaching

Case Study

How GrowGreen Organic Fertilisers Help Plants againts Drought?

A natural hazard like drought is caused by negative effects of the climatic change. Water is obviously a crucial and highly variable abiotic factor for every living organism including plants. Therefore, water scarcity in plants can cause major abiotic stresses which then results in a decrease in yield.

The application of bio stimulants like Amino Acid amino acids can help plants resist drought stress. One of our Organic Products; AminoKelp has a broad spectrum of all of the amino acids involved in protein formation, digested kelp and a broad spectrum of macro and micro nutrients that includes silica which can help mitigate against many forms of biotic and abiotic stress like insect attack and drought respectively.

A study in maize demonstrated up to a 30% yield increase (mass/1000 grains) when plants were sprayed with exogenous amino acids under drought conditions; spraying amino acids before water stress was experienced was up to 20% more effective than spraying once plants are stressed (Kasraie, 2012). Research conducted by Azimi et al. (2013) showed applicated of amino acids at a concentration of 1 mL/L reduced damage due to stress by 70% in wheat.
