Organic fertilizers are fertilizers that are naturally produced. Fertilizers are materials that can be added to soil or plants, in order to provide nutrients and sustain growth. Typical organic fertilizers include all animal waste including meat processing waste, manure, slurry, and guano; plus plant based fertilizers such as compost and biosolids.

Organic fertilizers are naturally available mineral sources that contain moderate amount of plant essential nutrients. They gradually release nutrients into the soil solution and maintain nutrient balance for healthy growth of crop plants. They also act as an effective energy source of soil microbes which in turn improve soil structure and crop growth. Organic fertilizers are generally thought to be slow releasing fertilizers and they contain many trace elements.

Soils with large amounts of the organic matter remain loose and light, retain more water and nutrients and promote the growth of soil microorganisms, thereby improving plant health and root development.

Organic fertilizers are widely used for vegetables (tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber), fruits (strawberries, grapes, citrus), Cash crops (grass, flowers, cannabis)




Phosphate is essential to all forms of life and needs replenishing in cultivated land where soils become depleted. 90% of phosphate consumption is in agriculture with 40% of world food production linked directly to fertilizer use.

There is no substitute for phosphate in agriculture. It is essential to improving crop yields to meet food demands for the world’s growing population.

Phosphate is a basic ingredient for some proteins and is important in the development of bones and teeth. It is also essential in the growth of plants. Phosphate is one of three essential nutrients (Nitrogen-Phosphorus and Potassium) in the production of fertilizer. This has made phosphate a sought after commodity over the recent years as population growth and climate change accelerate the need to sustain the world’s food supply.
