Not All Fertilizers Are Created Equal
There are a lot of organic fertilizers on the market, so how do you choose? Take a closer look at the ingredients. Many fertilizers labeled “organic” use cheap chicken manure fillers that may contain GMO’s and pathogens. Dr. Earth dry fertilizers use only the finest ingredients derived from nutrient rich fish found naturally in land plants, ocean plants, fish, fish bones and mined minerals from the earth. This nutritionally balanced formula promotes very rich and healthy soil equipped to grow the healthiest plants. Healthy soils can grow the healthiest fruits, vegetables, trees and flowering plants in your home and garden.
Our base ingredients are “ocean-derived”, such as fish bone meal, an exotic ingredient used in high quality cat foods and other exotic fish foods. Fish meal, full of complex proteins that become soluble nitrogen as they are fully decomposed and digested by probiotics in the soil, also contains an abundance of micronutrients. Kelp meal, or our even more concentrated kelp flour is one of our favorites. Imagine the flour you bake with. This is how fine the particles are in our sea plant kelp flour which we use as the base ingredient to carry all of our biological inoculants. We add these custom, handmade ingredients to our blended fertilizer line. This is why our blends are incredibly diversified with a plethora of trace elements and micronutrients in a highly bioavailable form due to its micronized size.
Micronutrients are important in many different situations. Soil can be depleted from over gardening or over farming. Micronutrient replenishment with organic fertilizers increases crop production, quality of produce, and yields along with healthier fruits and vegetables. It also stimulates the viability of beneficial soil microbes and mycorrhizae. Micronutrient rich fertilizers can help you save money, reduce fertilizer costs, save on energy usage, and decrease your goal of lowering your carbon footprint.
Every bag of Dr. Earth dry fertilizer is packed with TruBiotic®, our unique blend of probiotics that are found only in Dr. Earth. Probiotics are beneficial soil microbes and mycorrhizae, utilizing “Nature’s Intelligence.” Healthy soil is full of beneficial bacteria and mycorrhizal fungi that can fight off pathogens that harm plants.
All organic materials must be digested through microbial digestive enzymes for nutrients to be available to the plant roots. Without microbes, organic nutrients would simply sit in the soil and add nothing to plants. Soil microbes also help physically change the soil structure. They bind soil particles to better facilitate water and air infiltration. Different microbes perform different tasks. They create the soil every gardener dreams of: easy to work with, dark in color, teeming with a wide variety of biological life and giving off that wonderful, distinctive earthy smell.
TruBiotic® ensures organic nutrients are thoroughly broken down and then released in the soil for plant roots to absorb them as they are needed, contributing to drought tolerance, enhanced nutrient availability and increased plant performance.
Dr. Earth fertilizers may not be the cheapest, but you get what you pay for. Our fertilizer meets the highest standard and is 100% organic and natural. We don’t cut corners with cheap fillers, synthetic ingredients or GMO infested chicken manure.
