What's a Pre-Digested Organic Fertilizer?

Traditional organic fertilizers are simply blends of organic nutrients. When applied to soil, the plants rely on soil microbes to break down those nutrients to a simple form that the plants can eventually absorb.

AgroThrive is the only organic fertilizer on the market that had already gone through this digestion process before going into the soil, which is why users can see results in less than a week!
