Professional Grade
Suståne products are derived from biologically stable humus-rich compost and contain both water soluble nitrogen (WSN) and slow release nitrogen (SRN), beneficial microbiology, and all 17 elements essential for plant photosynthesis. Suståne will not cause seedling stress or plant fertilizer “burn”. Suståne products increase soil cation exchange capacity (CEC) by supplying humates and stable organic matter. Suståne’s organic and blended natural fertilizers provide all soil types with additional buffering capacity, allowing for more consistent and productive growth.

"We have chosen to use Suståne 10-1-4 as our early season start-up fertiliser for several years now, and the product has been extremely flexible, giving us consistent performance in varying weather conditions over the last few springs. It helps us to achieve a good balance of sward recovery, whilst also adding the organic base to stimulate soil health at a crucial time early season."
