AGGRAND Natural Based Fertilizer 4-3-3 (NOF) is a multipurpose liquid concentrate formulated to promote vigorous growth,
increased root development and improved stress and disease tolerance on flowers, vegetables, fruits, shrubs, trees, field crops and houseplants.
In addition to stimulating microbial activity in the soil, it provides nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) in a ratio of 4-3-3. AGGRAND Natural Based Fertilizer is
the ideal product for those seeking a Natural Based Fertilizer that demonstrates superior results.
All-Natural Sea Kelp
AGGRAND Natural Based Fertilizer uses kelp concentrate from the icy waters of the North Atlantic Ocean.
Kelp accumulates high levels of potassium. When used as a fertilizer,
it increases plant health by enhancing heat, drought and cold tolerance properties.
Organic Nitrogen Source
AGGRAND Natural Based Fertilizer is made from oceangoing menhaden fish that feed on mineral-rich plankton.
Though not considered edible for humans, Native Americans have used menhaden for centuries as a Natural Based Fertilizer, calling it “munna whaleaug,”
or “that which manures.” Menhaden provides nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, essential micronutrients and numerous vitamins and amino acids.
Menhaden fish emulsions represent the primary source of nitrogen in AGGRAND Natural Based Fertilizer.
- Multi-purpose – excellent results on flowers, fruits, vegetables, trees, crops and houseplants
- Formulated for foliar feed or soil application
- Promotes enhanced plant vigor, contributing to disease and stress resistance
- Convenient liquid concentrate
- Can be mixed with other AGGRAND products for easy application
While menhaden fish emulsions and kelp provide the basis for AGGRAND Natural Based Fertilizer, additional ingredients are added to achieve a balanced analysis.
- Sulfate of Potash - Extremely fine-grade natural mineral derived from the Great Salt Lake increases potassium levels
- Bloodmeal - Boosts availability of nitrogen in slow-release form to provide this vital nutrient as the plant requires it
- Natural Wintergreen Oil - Improves scent of AGGRAND Natural Based Fertilizer
Increased Microbial Activity
AGGRAND Natural Based Fertilizer increases bacterial activity in
soil, leading to stronger, healthier plants. Aerobic microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi and protozoa feed on
carbon sources, causing a process known as mineralization. Mineralization produces plant-available nitrogen and phosphorus that helps plants grow and develop.
To determine the amount of bacterial activity in soil, the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by microorganisms is measured.
Higher levels indicate more bacterial activity, hence more potential nitrogen and phosphorus available to plants.
Although chemical-based fertilizers have high nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium levels, plant-use efficiency can
be very low. In addition, they are often high in soluble salts that are toxic to soil bacteria and help create compaction
and nitrification conditions, resulting in plant stress. Research shows soil treated with AGGRAND Natural Based Fertilizer
demonstrates increased CO2 levels compared to a leading chemical fertilizer, meaning increased bacterial activity for healthier plants (see graph).
AGGRAND Natural Based Fertilizer 4-3-3 is recommended for, but not limited to, the following crops:
• Bedding Plants
