About Crystal Green®:
Sustainably produced by Ostara, Crystal Green® is the first fertilizer technology to provide a continuous release of phosphorus, along with nitrogen and magnesium, (5-28-0 with 10%Mg). Crystal Green is Root-Activated™ meaning it is citrate soluble and releases nutrients only in response to organic acids (citrates) produced by growing roots. As the roots produce citrates, Crystal Green responds with a healthy release of phosphorus nitrogen and magnesium, fertilizing plants on demand. Providing nutrients to roots on demand holds great benefits for the agriculture industry. For example, potato growers are able to minimize phosphorus tie-up and crop nutrition challenges by feeding potato plants all season-long with one application. Crystal Green is the best fertilizer for potato growers. It’s unique mode-of-action increases fertilizer efficiency and minimizes nutrient loss, thus reducing leaching and runoff which helps to protect local waterways from nutrient pollution. Crystal Green is distributed in the United States, Canada, and Europe through a global network of blenders and distributors to growers in the agriculture, horticulture and turf markets.
