Research Driven Results
Suståne Natural Fertilizer separates from all other organic fertilizers. Since 1980 Suståne has compiled over 500 independent research studies to create the most effective and user friendly fertilizers available. Suståne consistently demonstrates superior results through growth studies conducted by scientists at many universities and independent research facilities around the world.
Renewable Agricultural Resources
Suståne utilizes renewable agricultural resources to create a unique base of products through aerobic composting. The end result is a stable and safe, highly concentrated compost with low odor that is easy to handle and predictable every time. It's because of the composting process that Suståne fertilizers do not attract insects, decomposers, pets and other critters. The food value has been changed to humus and is of no use or benefit to higher life forms. When applied to soil or growing media, soil organisms easily convert Suståne organic nutrients into plant available fertilizer. Because this process has been completed, Suståne fertilizers will not consume oxygen in your soils.
Provides TOTAL Plant Nutrition
Suståne contains all 17 nutrients know to be essential for plant photosynthesis.
Feeds Plants Over Time…
Without burn or loss to the environment.
With a 5:1 C:N [carbon to nitrogen ratio] Suståne fertilizers go right to work supplying slow release nutrients to the soil and plants. The Suståne composting process converts raw organic matter into valuable humus, the organic matter will not immobilize other forms of nitrogen in the soil. Nitrogen immobilization renders free nitrogen unavailable for plant uptake. Slow Release Nitrogen is also less likely to leach or escape and serves to feed growing plants, as they require it over a longer period of time. Organically bound, slow release nitrogen is nature’s most efficient form of plant food. Soluble nitrogen has shifted to slow release organic nitrogen.
A Fertilizer AND a Soil Builder
Suståne Strengthens and Restores all Soil Types. Suståne fertilizers are made from stabilized organic matter (humus) that improves the soils capacity to store and exchange nutrients. Humus improves the water holding capacity of soils and improves water infiltration by increasing pore space.
Improves Soil and Plant Biological Activity
Communities of beneficial microorganisms evolve during the composting process. The compost is then dehydrated at temperatures similar to the compost rows allowing the beneficial microorganisms to survive and go dormant in the dehydrated product. he microbial communities have evolved into what are known as the beneficial microorganisms; These bugs go to work in the soil supplying plants with nutrients and providing diverse populations of beneficial soil biology thus creating resource competition for some plant pathogens.
Fights Soil and Plant Diseases
Suståne is proven to be effective in helping fight plant disease caused by soil borne pathogens. Suståne has been tested for its capacity to reduce plant injury and help plants recover from disease-causing organisms by enhancing beneficial soil biological activity without pesticide use.
Rich in Humic Acids
Rich humic and fulvic substances evolve during the Suståne process. These humic substances have achieved biological maturity beyond raw organic matter and peat moss but are younger and more soluble than inert and insoluble carbon coal phase commonly associated with soft shale and Leonardite humate fractions. Humic substances are important components of soil that affect physical and chemical properties and improve soil fertility.
Safe, Sustainable and Easy to Use
Suståne products are biologically stable so there is no offensive odor and no harmful bacteria. Uniform granulation eliminates dust and provides consistent, precise coverage. Our products are ecologically sound and simple to use.
Used by Professional Growers around the World
Suståne is used by professional growers in over 60 different countries. Suståne serves all green industries including Agriculture, Landscape, Home Gardens, Erosion Control Revegetation, Nursery and Greenhouse Production and Turfgrass.
