How are Gaia Green Organic Fertilizers Different from Convetional Fertilizers?

High N-P-K synthetic soluble fertilizers are typically designed to feed plants directly. Although this method provides desirable plant growth, these salt based fertilizers may by-pass the living organisms in the soil, and can be toxic to them. Under certain conditions, up to 70% of some soluble synthetic fertilizers can be leached from the root zone or evaporate from the soil surface rendering them ineffective. Gaia Green Premium Organic Fertilizers do not leach from the root zone, with close to 100% becoming slowly available to the plants. Our organic fertilizers feed the soil and the organisms living in it. These soil organisms process, cycle and re-cycle nutrients creating a natural "slow release" which helps to build essential soil organic matter and improve the soil food web. HEALTHY SOIL PRODUCES HEALTHY PLANTS.
