Biota NPK 5-2-2

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.  It can be used as a quick source of nitrogen, during maximum vegetative development and to recover from nitrogen deficiency. 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.

Use as a supplement to nitrogen in the soil or as a replacement when the soil has at least 3% organic matter content. Repeated applications of Azotobacter nitrogen fixating bacteria can be reduced by using Biota NPK 5-2-2.
