How do we get Nutrients in these forms?

We at Gro-Mor believe that by using the proper high quality raw materials in a monitored production process we can produce a special product, which results in a high percentage of readily available nutrients that the plant can immediately use for absorption, feeding, and growth. Our nitrogen sources include granular urea, and ammonium hydroxide. Our phosphorus source is phosphoric acid which is a very highly concentrated form of ortho-phosphate molecules. Yes, that's right!! The same kind that plant roots take in!! Potassium comes from potassium hydroxide; a clear, colorless liquid which has a high concentration of recoverable potassium molecules.

Industrial By-Products in GRO-MOR'S Fertilizers?

No!! Gro-Mor does not use industrial by-products in manufacturing fertilizer, unless they have been proven by laboratory testing to be of absolute high purity and extremely low metal content. Although we are bombarded by requests from manufacturers to utilize their by-products (at a fraction of the cost that we pay for high quality virgin raw materials) we do not stoop to pay the low prices that these manufacturers are requiring, because we do not want to pass the impurities in their products on to you, the farmer, thereby potentially contaminating your soil. Recent publications have pinpointed the dangers of using some of these fertilizers.
