With years of research, testing, and technical expertise, we have developed unique plant fertilizer that suppresses disease, pests, and weeds. Our fertilizer products work exclusively within a supported ecological model to grow plants as nature intended—with minimal intervention.
Earth-Care Organic Fertilizer™ is a natural organic fertilizer, crafted with several species of beneficial probiotics that help to keep plants safe and healthy by maintaining a balanced and a vibrant soil eco-system.
We market our products as a method of growing plants that will minimize the use of pesticides and eliminate nitrate, phosphate and other possible chemical fertilizer run-offs and rejuvenate the soil fertility.
1st Choice Fertilizer, Inc. was founded on the principle of providing commercial and residential customers with safe and effective fertilizer options that can be used as an alternative and/or a beneficial addition to genetic engineering, pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.
1st Choice Fertilizer, Inc. promotes the concept of balance and a rooted belief that our products have an ecological and environmental impact.
1st Choice fertilizer technology is modeled on the well-established work of Elaine Ingham, a microbiologist at Oregon State University, who identified a “food web” ecosystem. In a natural food web, plants rely on indigenous microorganisms and food cycling systems.
Our flagship product, Earth-Care Organic Fertilizer™, is a natural, organic fertilizer which is crafted with several species of probiotics. These beneficial organisms help to keep plants safe and healthy by maintaining a balanced and vibrant soil ecosystem. The beneficial microbes in Earth-Care products enter the soil to assist with nutrient breakdown, allowing nutrients to be more easily absorbed by plants.
Our formulas keep microbes in a dormant state until applied. When the microbes come into contact with water they become active. This prevents the microbes from dying off before they have reached the area of application. Unlike laboratory cultures, our wild microbes enter the soil at a peak point in their life cycle which makes them capable of reproducing and thriving in the natural environment.
At 1st Choice Fertilizer,Inc we believe that human intervention is the clearest pathway to restoring equilibrium. Therefore, it is our goal to combine our Scientific Analysis with your Practical Knowledge and empower you as the, “Keeper of Balance,” restoring Mother Nature to equilibrium and optimizing whatever you choose to grow.
Biological presence in soil is a significant occurrence when examined. Soil should be examined to determine whether it consist of living biological matter. Soil is balanced when it has a living biological presence and it is out of equalization when not present. We will be investigating the various components that can cause imbalance.
The compelling force of Mother Nature causes an unevenness in the soil through debasement, draining, disintegration, vanishing, and the like. These elements must be addressed to create balance in the soil that will prove fruitful in the cultivating or farming industries.
Our Earth-Care Technology is an important factor in soil prescription. When Earth-Care Technology is applied to the soil, it aids the soil against pests, debasement, draining, disintegration, vanishing, and other sources of destruction. NKP chemical fertilizers are great but they don’t have the same capacity as that of organic fertilizers. Earth-Care heals the soil and fortifies it against the various stressors—thereby helping it to perform.
Earth-Care fertilizer generates a more productive soil which delivers more plant nutrients for vitality.
Does your soil need balance? Does your soil need relief? Are you hoping to have a great yield this year? Then please try one of our products! 1st Choice Fertilizer will help balance your soil and help you to create healthier crops and plants.
The Theoretical Basics of our technology is well-founded on and have specific references, such as Field and Laboratory Data, which are available upon request.
It describes a complex living system in the soil and how it interacts with the environment, plants, and animals. Food webs describe the transfer of energy between species in an ecosystem. … Heterotrophs are consumers that cannot make their own food. Why is the soil food web important?
In turn, soil organisms support plant health as they decompose organic matter, cycle nutrients, enhance soil structure, and control the populations of soil organisms including crop pests.
Bacteria perform many important ecosystem services in the soil including improved soil structure and soilaggregation, recycling of soil nutrients, and water recycling. … Bacteria perform important functions in the soil, decomposing organic residues from enzymes released into the soil.
Organic and Biodynamic are very similar; both are grown without chemicals and GMOs. … The main difference between organic and biodynamic is that biodynamic farming uses different principles that add vitality to the plant, soil and/or livestock, whereas traditional farming typically deteriorates the soil.
It means that the food was grown and processed in accordance with Demeter Biodynamic standards, which promote ecologically sustainable farming practices and prohibit synthetic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, antibiotics (except to treat sick animals), genetically engineered seeds, sewage sludge as a fertilizer.
Biodynamic plants are grown in the ground in living soil, which provides a quality of health and nutrition not possible with chemical fertilizers or hydroponic growing. Biodynamic farms aspire to generate their own soil fertility through composting, integrating animals, cover cropping, and crop rotation.
In contrast, crop rotation and an assortment of animal life are an important part of sustainable agriculture. The practice of rotating crops from field to field and raising varied animal species, along with cover crops and green manures, encourage healthy soil, reduces parasites and controls weeds and pests.
1st Choice Fertilizer’s goal is to create very high quality products, through innovative processes of research and development. we believe successful research and development are essential condition to achieving innovative products for sustainable future.
1st Choice fertilizer philosophy is based on two principles: to produce quality and safer products.
Every formula is formulated to assure sustainable environment and safe food nutrition, also with the awareness of the necessity to promote more sustainable agriculture.
In order to ensure the highest product quality and efficiency standards, 1st Choice Fertilizer collaborates with research institutions, test facilities, universities, cooperatives and farms, in addition to an intense internal research activity aimed at introducing sustainable solutions.
An essential element of 1st Choice Fertilizer success is our meticulous selection of very high quality raw materials, when purchasing is made with total respect of a rigid code concerning their origin and processing.
It can be deduced then, that the plant has different levels of existence, i.e., the plant can be very vigorous to a level of being barely surviving and other levels in between with the final level being dead. This same premise would be true for all living organisms. It is well known in the microorganism world that if the stresses placed on an organism becomes greater and greater, the organism will eventually go to sleep to protect itself and as long as the stresses are not severe enough to kill the organism, the organism will stay in this sleep state until the stresses are relieved and conditions become favorable for the organism to reawaken. So, let us say, that as the stresses on the world increase, no matter what stresses there may be, the world is gradually going into a sleep state.
Hopefully, the stresses will subside before everything in the world is killed. If this hypothesis is accepted, we are now somewhere on this exponential curve where the world is somewhere between being a very vigorous place and a place being asleep. Why is this important? Well, the more vigorous the world is, the more efficient transfer of carbon from the atmosphere as carbon dioxide to the soil via photosynthesis will occur. Then, the proposed solution to reducing the increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is to reinvigorate the world. 1st Choice Fertilizer, Inc. has invented a process referred to as “Earth-Care Organic Fertilizer™ ” that does exactly that. The implementation of this technology to grow plants greatly and increases their vigor greatly, which improves the transfer of carbon from the air to the soil both by increasing the carbon sequestering nature of the plant and the carbon sequestering nature of the soil.
