Advanced Nutrients products have been specially engineered for hydroponics growing. Nevertheless, tens of thousands of growers around the world are using Advanced Nutrients for soil growing with great success.
Some of Advanced Nutrients products are approved for organic gardening and are certified by California’s Organic Input Material (OIM) Program.
