Holganix partners with Pearl Valley Farms on new granular fertilizer

April 1, 2015  - By

Holganix has announced a partnership with Illinois-based Pearl Valley Farms‘ Healthy Grow fertilizer line to produce an organic-based granular fertilizer: Holganix Granular with Healthy Grow.

Holganix manufactures a line of organic bionutritional products that contain living biology and other ingredients to promote plant, turf and tree health. Pearl Valley Farms is one of the country’s only self-sustaining egg farms, and a manufacturer of organic fertilizers.

Healthy Grow is a high quality organic fertilizer produced by Pearl Valley Farms. It is an aerobically composted poultry fertilizer (ACCM). Healthy Grow, in combination with Holganix’s living microbiology, provides organic matter that fuels the system supplying plants with balanced fertility.

“Ultimately, the organic matter contains rich carbon-sources, which act as a food source for the microorganisms,” says Robert Neidermyer, Ph.D., Holganix director of plant and soil science. “This allows the microbes to convert nitrogen and other nutrients locked in organic matter and elsewhere in the soil, to plant-useable forms.”

The presence of organic matter contained in both Healthy Grow and Holganix allows users to decrease synthetic inputs by more than 50 percent while still yielding a healthy green color, according to a news release from Holganix. The presence of organic matter and microbiology also helps the plant become more tolerant to stressful conditions like winter injury and drought.

“Pearl Valley is looking forward to producing granular products with Holganix. Our unique process combined with the added biological value of Holganix creates a whole new level of synergy between two great products,” says Dave Thompson, founder and president of Pearl Valley Farms.

“We’re very excited to be partnering with Pearl Valley Farms,” says Holganix CEO Barrett Ersek. “Holganix Granular with Healthy Grow will provide a sustainable, organic solution to turf, tree and plant health.”
