Nutrients that feed the Soil & Plant Biology
Step 2 of BioNutrition
SouthWest Agronomy advise on fertiliser programmes to achieve desired outcomes, using nutrients that are harvested from sustainable resources and put Sustainable Turfgrass Management into practice.
The owner of South West Agronomy, Andrew Turnbull, has spent many years investigating plant derived compounds such as, carbohydrates, natural auxins, amino acids, gibberellins, alginic acid, and seaweed, and combining them with mineral nutrients. An example is Andrew's study at the University of Nottingham, for his Master of Research degree, of a specific plant extract that increases photosynthesis. This would be extremely useful for turfgrass areas grown in shade, and also for use during the lower light of the winter months.

Middle: measuring the rate of photosynthesis. Right: germination of seed in shade, L-Active treated pots top left & bottom right.
Super concentrated organic fish hydrolysate
All the nutrients and elements required for life on earth are found in the sea, and the South West of England has a long and rich history of harvesting from the sea to produce healthy and vigorous crops.
AnMor (from the Cornish "from the sea", relfecting the sustainable sourcing of this SouthWest resource) is made from whole fish and has been designed to complement applied fertiliser to quickly return your rootzone to its natural microbial state, resulting in enhanced root penetration for optimum plant health and vigour. AnMor supplies micronutrients, proteins, peptides and amino acids vital for optimum plant health on sand-based rootzones. The probiotics in AnMor stimulate beneficial microbes resulting in greater nutrient uptake by plants and enhanced natural pest & disease control. This professional formulation can be applied in low volumes for an economic liquid treatment for great playing surfaces. Read more...
AnMor is proving popular with home gardeners. See our Garden Saver website here for more information on how to use on outdoor and indoor plants.
