Biota NPK 5-2-5 Low Organic

Biota NPK 5-2-5 is a multinutrient fertilizer especially suitable for use during the middle part of the crop cycle. It is unique in that it is registered for use in organic farming, with a low content of organic matter, chlorine, sodium and sulfur. Due to the unique production process, the nutrients are present in solution and therefore directly available to the plant through foliar application as well as irrigation. The nutrients are sourced from plant-based materials, partly from agricultural residual streams.
