While most agribusinesses have pursued the holy grail of maximum yield for decades, sustainable plant nutrition product manufacturer Nature’s Source has a different message to propagate: The pursuit for greater productivity reducing dependency on chemical or petroleum-based commodity fertilizers will create healthy soils while improving our crops and the environment.
As one of the marvels of the industrial revolution, commodity fertilizers can increase plant growth to bolster global food security. However, they are high in salts, and decades of over-use will diminish soil health. To fulfill our food needs and preserve our farmlands for future generations, we need organic carbon as part of sustainable crop fertility solutions— precisely what Nature’s Source brings to the table.
Since 1994, Nature’s Source has been a trusted name in agriculture, horticulture, and the home gardening space, delivering easy-to-use, convenient, and high-efficiency plant and soil nutrition products. All of its BioNutrition liquid plant food solutions contain uniquely balanced low-salt formulations that are derived from oilseed extract, a renewable source of plant nutrition.
A high-potency microbial complex, Nature’s Source’s plant probiotics ensure effective mineral digestion and prepare unavailable nutrients for plant absorption, enhancing overall nutrient efficiency. They balance complex L-amino acids content and concentrations to provide efficiency and effectiveness in delivering the greater ability for mineral chelation and plant absorption of all essential plant minerals. These low-salt, high-soluble organic solutions also aid the mitigation of salt-laden soil and feed the microbiome naturally, returning it to a natural balance. They ensure total reductions of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium typically applied while improving crop quality and yields.
Our unique seed extract technology induces soluble amino acids, making our products a rich source of nitrogen with the whole gamut of macro and micronutrients
“All our nutritional values are derived from the proprietary blend of seed extracts, a valued byproduct of wet seed milling,” says Chance Finch, president of Nature’s Source. “Our unique seed extract technology induces soluble amino acids, making our products a rich source of nitrogen with the whole gamut of macro and micronutrients.”
Nature’s Source’s blended seed extracts are rich in organic/L-amino acids, vitamins, and proteins that make its plant food solutions ideal for enhancing plant health and crop production. Derived from oil seeds, it can deliver additional natural nutrition, such as natural organisms, cytokines, and gibberellins, which support overall plant development and health. It also serves as a natural source of carbon, feeding the soil to create a healthy environment for promoting and spawning natural organisms typically depleted by other nutrition technology, such as synthetic fertilizers. By extracting the oil phase of the seed, the company delivers natural wetting agents that are reflected in its product’s characteristics—easily disperses in water and quickly spread/stick/penetrate when applied as a foliar spray.
With this perfect line of capabilities, Nature’s Source solutions are ideally suited for efficiently delivering balanced nutrition to everything grown on the earth and for soil and foliar applications. While soil benefits from soluble carbon and a higher digestion rate, plants gain a healthier root structure with improved mineral uptake. In essence, the company’s products are proved to be value-based alternatives for commodity fertilizers, ensuring high efficiency and binding better to soil structures, resulting in less environmental impact.
Committed to serving as a go-to solution for a wide range of crops grown in different topography and climatic conditions, Nature’s Source goes the extra mile to develop unique formulations tailored to specifically address plant and soil health. The company also designs various crop programs, where it uses a composite of synergistic solutions to solve plant and soil nutrient issues. Needless to say, Nature’s Source Crop Programs are focused on meeting growers' varying needs, regardless of where they are in their practices.
