Naturally Effective and Multi-Purpose
AGGRAND Liquid Natural Organic Fertilizer is a multi-purpose liquid product that is ideal for all-around use on flowers, vegetables, fruits, lawns, shrubs, trees and field crops. AGGRAND is perfect for houseplants as well.
It is blended from organic, all-natural ingredients, but it is NOT “Certified Organic”. If you need that certification, then you should consider our “Organic Series” Fertilizer, which is similar to this formulation but IS “Certified Organic”.
This cost-effective organic fertilizer provides a uniquely bio-available source of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (N-P-K) in a 4-3-3 ratio coupled with powerful micro-nutrient, plant hormone and soil microbe support. The combination of these essential components promotes vigorous growth, increased root development and improved disease and stress tolerance.
- Excellent Performance on Flowers, Fruits, Vegetables, Lawns, Trees and Crops: Use the very same mix and application for superior results on multiple different applications, saving time, effort and money.
- Demonstrated Performance in Commercial Fruit & Vegetable Market: Thousands of commercial farmers have used AGGRAND organic fertilizer over the past 15 years with bigger and better yield and reduced costs.
- Promotes Plant Vigor Which Contributes to Disease & Stress Resistance: Strong plants require far less water, pesticides, fungicides and less care, meaning less stress on you AND your pocketbook.
- Convenient Liquid Concentrate: Allows for easy application to the leaves and/or the soil, providing flexibility. Blend multiple AGGRAND products and apply at once to save time, effort and fuel expenses.

Organic Fertilizer Protects the Environment
Natural ingredients are released more slowly so there is less chance of environmental impact. Soil microbes fix the nutrients needed for plant growth and release them slowly as plants need them. On the other hand petro chemical fertilizers are often high in soluble salts that are detrimental to soil microbes and plants alike: They decrease microbial activity and plant nutrient uptake. Although these fertilizers are high analysis N-P-K, the plant-use efficiency is very low.
Kelp from Icy North Atlantic Waters
When used as a fertilizer, kelp makes plants more robust and healthy by enhancing their heat, drought and cold tolerance. It also supplies N-P-K, sulfur (S), magnesium(Mg), calcium (Ca), iron (Fe), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), manganese (Mn), boron (B),sodium (Na), carbohydrates and numerous amino acids.
Blended with Menhaden Fish Emulsion
Emulsified fish is extracted through low temperature processes from Menhaden fish which were used by Native Americans for centuries to grow their crops. Menhaden comes from the word “munna whaleaug” which means “that which manures.” Menhaden ocean fish feed on mineral rich plankton, which makes them full of essential nutrients. Caught in the coastal waters of Virginia and the Gulf of Mexico, Menhaden are not edible, but are commercially important for their high oil content. The fish are steamed slowly at 190° F, which preserves the amino acids, minerals and vitamins. The fish component in AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer supplies N-P-K and 10 micronutrients, as well as a number of vitamins and amino acids.
Bloodmeal and sulfate of potash are combined with the fish to boost the nutrient levels in AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer. Together, the kelp, fish, bloodmeal and sulfate of potash provide all of the elements needed to grow healthy, vigorous plants. In addition to these ingredients, a number of other natural additives are included that reduce transplant shock and chelate the nutrients. Chelated nutrients are protected against leaching into the groundwater and are readily available for plant uptake.
While menhaden fish emulsions, kelp, bloodmeal and sulfate of potash provide the basis for AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer, additional ingredients are added to achieve a balanced analysis.
- Molasses Sugar – Carbon source made from fresh cane that feeds soil biology and enhances foliar applications
- Natural Wintergreen Oil – Improves scent of AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer
- Fulvic Acid – Natural material derived from Leonardite shale enhances foliar applications and chelates minerals for increased plant availability
- Vitamin B1 – Natural vitamin supplement increases plant health
Increased Microbial Activity is Crucial
AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer increases bacterial activity in soil, leading to stronger, healthier plants. Aerobic microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi and protozoa feed on carbon sources, causing a process known as mineralization. Mineralization produces plant-available nitrogen and phosphorus that helps plants grow and develop.
To determine the amount of bacterial activity in soil, the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by microorganisms is measured. Higher levels indicate more bacterial activity, hence more potential nitrogen and phosphorus available to plants.
Although chemical-based fertilizers have high nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium levels, plant-use efficiency can be very low. In addition, they are often high in soluble salts that are toxic to soil bacteria and help create compaction and nitrification conditions, resulting in plant stress. Research shows soil treated with AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer demonstrates increased CO2 levels compared to a leading chemical fertilizer, meaning increased bacterial activity for healthier plants (see graph).
Applications and Rates
AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer 4-3-3 is recommended for, but not limited to, the following crops and applications, but is useful for virtually anything that’s “green & grows”.
• Bedding Plants
• Citrus Fruits
• Deep-Root Plants
• Field Tomatoes
• Golf Courses
• Greenhouse Tomatoes
• Hay and Pasture Fields
• Rice (Wetland)
• Wheat and Small
Application rates vary according to plant/crop type, soil condition and weather conditions, but, in some cases, as little as 1 gallon of 4-3-3 per acre (about 45,000 square feet) can have a tremendous result.
AGGRAND 4-3-3 fertilizer is a liquid concentrate. For most foliar (to the leaf) applications, expect to mix about 3-4 ounces of fertilizer to 1 gallon of water (about 1 gallon fertilizer to 30-40 gallons of water). However, for foliar hay and turf applications, you can mix as little as 15 gallons of water per gallon of fertilizer (although, ideally, more water would be better for best coverage).
For broadcast application to the soil, a 3% solution is fine, although less water would be OK if you’re not applying directly to new seed (in which case I’d stick to a 3% solution). Generally, anywhere from 3 ounces of fertilizer per 1/2 – 1 gallon of water (1 gallon fertilizer to 20-40 gallons of water) is fine for soil applications that are not being sprayed directly on new seed.
Our hose end sprayer will give you a mix of about 3%, which will work fine for pretty much any homeowner application (turf, garden, landscaping, etc.)
NOTE: AGGRAND corporate literature sometimes recommends considerably more water for best coverage, however, for most farmers, that amount of water is not feasible with the size of their spray tanks – it would require too many trips to refill the tank to cover much acreage. So, if you can use more water, that is best, but if it’s not really feasible or efficient for you to do so, the recommendations above will work fine and are a bit more reasonable.
Consult the AGGRAND Crop Guide (G2793) for additional application information.
