Hendrikus Organic Fertilizers
100% Organic and USDA Approved for Organic Crop Production
We love soil! And we understand soil. We understand the soil’s microbial community, and the importance of supplying the right food sources to restore, enliven and support the life in our soils so that it will perform to its optimum.
There is more to knowing soil and its complexities than organic farming alone will provide. Although our early origins started with traditional European organic farming, which strongly relates to an intuitive and learned understanding of soil, we also have decades of working with every type of soil in myriad situations where soils have eroded, slid, failed, been neglected, over-chemicalized, saturated, you name it, we’ve worked with it. We’ve turned those soils around, regenerating them, to become fertile, living, high performance soils that bring vitality and provide dynamic health to plants and turf.
Your soil’s food source is key to its health and that of the microbial community, and it is from this extensive knowledge that we have created our high-performance Organic Fertilizers.
Every nutrient plays a critical role in the vitality of the soil. And so, we choose our ingredients and blend our formulas very carefully.
Soil nutrients are more than just the N-P-K (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium). The calcium and magnesium balance is critical to the soil, as are the other micro-nutrients, trace elements and minerals, humic acids, proteins, amino acids, carbohydrates, vitamins and enzymes. Every organic and mineral input to the soil creates a reaction within the microbial community that works to build our soils and provide nutrition to our plants… and in turn us.
Knowing this, we formulate our ingredients based on a comprehensive nutritional balance to meet the needs of both the soil and plants, enhance the microbial activity, and provide short and long-term results for optimum plant vitality, sustainability and disease resistance.
We choose ingredients with the lowest heavy metal contents, striving to be below background standards for soil and environmental health. We do not use animal manures to avoid odor, pathogens and the additional processing needed for safety and to avoid nutrient spiking. All of our products have the added benefit of beneficial bacteria, trichoderma protective fungi and mycorrhizae for easier and quicker availability of nutrients to the plants.
Even our binding agent for our granulation adds benefit to your soils and the quality of our product. Ingredient source and formulation, how and with what they are blended, makes a difference to your soil. Our formulations are time tested with ingredients that produce outstanding results, no matter your soil type.
