Everything we do is grounded in...
Science & Technology
We apply food science, microbiology, biochemistry, and fermentation technologies as the main tools to perfect our Progressive Digestion Process.
We partner with local colleges, universities, USDA extension programs, and our growers to continually study the nutritional, biological and environmental effects of AgroThrive on local crops. This enables the perfecting and expanding of the science behind PDP.
Our scientists use Respirometry, Genetic Analysis, Scanning Electron Microscopy, Statistical Analysis, and more to study, record, and interpret the effects of our organic fertilizers on crops. The practical result of this is our uncompromising dedication to science and innovation to provide the best products and services to our customers.
Other driving influences include applying soil science, greenhouse technologies, field trial planning and execution to collect data.
Stimulating Root Growth
Under a microscope one can witness the magic of AgroThrive. Comparing our General Purpose (left) with a chemical fertilizer (right), it is clear that AgroThrive increased the density and length of root hairs on this 6 week old cauliflower rootlet for better water and nutrient absorption.
This cross section shows a significant increase in microbial activity inside the phloem cells (AgroThrive, left) compared to the chemical fertilizer (right). Microbes help with plant protection, nutrient conversion, and corresponding nutrient absorption by plants.
The result of increased microbial activity in young plants is vigorous root growth that leads to bigger foliage, followed by improved disease resistance, and better yields. Mature plants benefit from AgroThrive's increased nutrient release resulting in better tasting and looking fruits, flowers, & veggies.
