Jun 27, 2018Two micronutrient fertilizers by Alltech get organic certification
Lexington, Kentucky-based Alltech Crop Science, the agronomic division of Alltech, has attained organic certification in North America for two of its naturally based products: Grain-Set and Agro-Mos. The two micronutrient fertilizers, which are based on amino acid and fermentation technology, join the company’s other Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI)-certified products, including Soil-Set, Crop-Set and Galvanize Contact, increasing options for organic growers to meet the nutritional needs of their crops.
“Consumers are demanding more natural products that are sustainable and traceable, and we’re excited to be able to offer an expanded organically certified line to our growers who are looking to meet those demands,” said Dr. Steven Borst, Alltech Crop Science general manager.
Borst also noted that the company now offers a certified organic product for every stage of a plant’s growth cycle.
Borst said the certification further solidifies Alltech Crop Science’s commitment to Alltech’s founding ACE principle, the promise that in doing business, the company has a positive impact on agriculture, the consumer and the environment.
