FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What’s a bio fertilizer?
A bio fertilizer is a substance which contains living microorganisms which, when applied to seeds, plant surfaces, or soil, colonize the rhizosphere or the interior of the plant and promotes growth by increasing the supply or availability of primary nutrients (such as Nitrogen and Phosphorus) to the host plant.
What’s the difference between organic and bio-organic?
Regular organic fertilizer usually goes through a high temperature treatment during which all the microorganisms are killed. This severely limits the extent to which regular organic fertilizer can provide beneficial soil microbes. Our bio-organic fertilizer is manufactured with a different process in which beneficial microorganisms thrive and multiply. The end result is a solution that provides an abundance of soil microbes.
Organic fertilizer by drying, deodorizing effect of organic fertilizer is not ideal because of drying treatment. Once organic fertilizer is damp, stench is issued. Bio-organic fertilizer fundamentally eliminates the odor, because it can turn uric acid into the urine bacterial protein.
