As eager as we are to see growers reduce their reliance on synthetic inputs, we recognize that transition will not happen overnight.  Commercial fertilizers wouldn’t be so prevalent if they weren’t effective, but the problem is they have been and continue to be OVER-applied.  This results in a compromise of the complex biological ecosystem that exists within our soils upon which those fertilizers are reliant in order to be effective.  Hence, we have a law of diminishing returns:   over-apply fertilizer -> compromise your soil health -> those fertilizers become less effective.

Penny Newman has a robust network of logistical infrastructure and a team of supply chain experts that can procure and distribute commercial fertilizers at competitive prices.  We offer these products not just to serve existing market demand but as a means to introduce complementary products and methods that increase nutrient efficiency and uptake.

Take Aqua Yield’s Nano Technology as an example.  Simply blending this product with any traditional fertilizer product will increase its efficiency by 30-50%.  Growers have the option to cut back significantly on applied units or leverage the unique delivery mechanism this product provides to optimize nutrient availability to the plant with immediately measurable results.  To learn more about Aqua Yield’s products visit their landing page here.

“We started using FULL SPECTRUM C+P three years ago when our orchard was 13 years old. At the time, California was in the third year of a very dry period of hydrology statewide and our irrigation district was extremely reliant on well water for the second year in a row. The water was adding to the overall salinity of the soil and the effects were more pronounced in our trees because of their age relative to other orchards in our area. Leaf tip burn, trees completely drying up and late season leaf defoliation were some of the negative effects. Our Monterey variety was so stressed from the salty well water that some actually went into a second bloom after harvest. For the first time since planting the trees in 2003, my dad and I began to discuss whether or not we will be able to get 20+ years of production from the trees or if we should begin preparing for removal and replant. As it turned out that wasn’t necessary. In the first year of applying FULL SPECTRUM C+P we noticed immediate improvement in water penetration that led to larger moisture zones. Areas that would have standing water for up to 4 days after irrigations suddenly were reduced to nothing more than wet soil after 24 hours.
