Nutrients PLUS, LLC, headquartered in Virginia Beach, Virginia, announces that it is the first in the US to register algae based fertilizer and to market it as a beneficial natural ingredient in the company’s fertilizer. The company applied for registration of algae and is now approved for the sale of this source of plant food nutrients; it’s a first in the country. This has significance, as the company discovered, because it is the first such application and approval in the United States.
The immediate agronomic benefit is soil health and productivity. This discovery is part of a larger break-through – being the first to market a biomass-energy algae fertilizer by-product. Demonstrating enhanced efficiency from conventional fertilizer by utilizing natural ingredients in their formulation (in this case, algae) for agriculture is obviously important.
