Biota NPK 4-2-8

Biota-NPK is unique because it is the highest concentration liquid biological single fertilizer on the market. Due to the unique production process, the nutrients are 100% present in solution and can therefore be taken up directly by the plant. The product is fully made from plant-based materials and certified for use in organic agri- and horticulture. The ingredients are partly sourced from agricultural waste. Due to the natural origin the nutrient content may vary.
