There is a complete line of Advanced Nutrients organic products. Some of them are certified by the California Department of Food & Agriculture (CDFA) as an Organic Input Material (OIM). “Organic Input Material” means any fertilising material, excluding pesticides, that is to be used in organic crop and food production and that complies with the requirements of the National Organic Program standards. However, the products with the OIM label are currently not available in Europe.
What Is The Difference Between Organic And Mineral Nutrients?
When talking about organic nutrients and fertilisers, it’s important to note what is the difference between organic and mineral nutrients.
In short, mineral nutrients are based on mineral elements and feed the plants directly. While organic nutrients are made from natural ingredients (usually derived from living organisms) and feed the substrate, then the substrate feeds the plants.
The Advanced Nutrients organic products’ formulas are made of natural ingredients such as kelp, alfalfa, yeast, freshwater liquid fish hydrolysate, earthworm castings, leonardite, and others. The Advanced Nutrients organic products have been designed in a way that they should be giving you the same results as their mineral-based predecessors. Growers might choose to grow with organic products instead of mineral nutrients if they don’t want to bother too much with pH levels and prefer a more organic taste of crops.
