What is Nitrosol?
Nitrosol is a biological liquid suspension
fertiliser, made from good old organic blood and bone, sourced from
sheep processing abattoirs or fish processing operations.
Nitrosol is designed as a total replacement,
one-step fertiliser containing:
|| A balanced supply of the major nutrients N. P. and K. (8.3.6.)
- all readily
plant available to feed through BOTH the foliage and roots
|| The organic matter from blood and bone includes amino acids,
globulin, cholesterol, humates and protein, the building blocks
|| A carefully balanced formulation of all the essential trace
|| Two naturally occurring growth
Manufactured from ovine (sheep) blood and bone, Nitrosol
Original has earned an enviable reputation based upon over thirty
years widespread use among farmers and growers for producing outstanding
results in virtually any plant growing situation in New Zealand and
many countries around the world. Nitrosol
aids plant growth and development and helps plants to grow and produce
closer to their genetic potential.
Primarily used by horticultural growers, so many of whom have great
respect for ‘good old blood and bone’ and have found that
gives them similar benefits plus many more besides a far quicker uptake.
Manufactured from blood and bone sourced from deep sea fish processing
operations. Nitrosol Oceanic was originally
developed to meet the requirements of European importation of blood
and bone products in the early 1990's, and is for use on pasture or
crops grazed by ruminant animals and also helps farmers to comply
with New Zealand MAF Regulations promulgated to ensure grazing
animals do not eat animal sourced protein.
Nitrosol Organic is a liquid fertiliser
made from fish from fish waste sourced from fish processing operations.
Carefully manufactured according to strict criteria permissible for
the production of certified organic inputs, Nitrosol organic is certified
by AsureQuality New Zealand and is approved for use by certified organic
Nitrosol Organic has been formulated with
a focus on increasing the humus and organic activity within the soil.
The organic material is there to nurture and stimulate the biological
activity and in particular the earthworms, as this in turn leads to
improved soil structure and the release of locked up nutrients.
Nitrosol Organic results include aiding
with recovery after a stress event such as adverse weather conditions
or transplanting and helping the availability of nutrients to plants
so that they may produce closer to their genetic potential. For organic
pastoral farmers the result is a more balanced nutrient and trace
element rich herbage, to help improve animal health and productivity.

Nitrosol is a Balanced Fertiliser
The real key here is balanced. Most scientists recognise that a balance
of all elements in the soil is absolutely crucial to obtain healthy
It's just not good enough to apply large doses of one or two elements
- as this will tend to 'lock up' many others. Excessive phosphorus
can for example 'lock up' zinc, copper, calcium and iron and application
of bulk potassium can render magnesium unavailable and cause all sorts
of animal health problems.
Years of research and practical testing of the original formula, developed
by highly respected Australian veterinary scientist, the late Dr G
P Kauzal well over 30 years ago, have produced a totally balanced
Nitrosol also contains two naturally occurring
growth promotants. The first is an incredibly powerful stimulant extracted from certain waxes
and selected plant foliage that helps plants to absorb and use the
nutrients we include as well as those in the surrounding soil. It stimulates
the process of photosynthesis literally within minutes of its application.
This promotant is also responsible for boosting the 'sugars' in plants that
aids the sweetness and taste in fruit and palatability in animal feed.
Higher sugars means higher levels of all the micro-nutrients, trace
elements, energy and vitamins so important for animal/human health
The second naturally occurring promotant is responsible for cell elongation and Triacontanol
acts to stimulate cell division. Together these two growth promotants
act as an aid to help plants take up and use all the available nutrients,
those in the soil as well as those in Nitrosol
What is the Payback?
More and more farmers are demanding fertilisers that really perform.
Therefore, the most important question is, just how can you expect
to truly benefit from using Nitrosol?
Nitrosol produces fantastic results all
over New Zealand and around the world. Whether your situation is pastoral,
horticultural, cropping, nursery, recreational turf or even just in
the vegie garden you can expect:
Productivity, Yield, Health and Quality
|| A soil structure that is more aerated and friable, so it
can hold more moisture, and also improve drainage
|| Higher yields from hardy, robust, healthier plants, then
become more resistant to attack from insect pests and disease
|| More organic activity in soil leads to an increase in earthworm
numbers and beneficial soil organisms
||Boosts plant recovery after a stress event such as transplanting
or an adverse weather occurrence
||Eliminates leaching or runoff and contamination of groundwater,
rivers and lakes due to its organic nature and being a suspension
||Higher metabolisable energy, leads to improved palatability
and nutrient value of grazing pasture for animals and crops
for human or animal consumption
||Improved stock health with lower animal health costs that
leads to greater productivity and more profit
|| Increases dry matter production and accelerates breakdown
of thatch and dead plant material
Nitrosol is also extremely cost efficient
- because it's a liquid and because it's packed full of active ingredients.
We only use the highest quality blood and bone with strict minimum
quality levels. Then, after all the trace elements, minerals and growth
promotants are thoroughly mixed, the product is passed through a special
grinding mill system and then a screening process to ensure that the
maximum possible particle size is 250microns or 0.25mm so it can be
sprayed through conventional spraying systems.
|| In such a concentrated form, Nitrosol
is very cost efficient to transport
|| Nitrosol can be applied with normal
ground or airborne spray equipment - at the same time as
your regular spray programme if you wish
|| It acts as a sticker/spreader for herbicides, pesticides
and fungicides. Farmers and growers often find they use less
chemical with the same or even better results
|| The nutrients are very plant available and the organic material
decomposes slowly to provide extended growth over a longer period
