HAZLET, N.J. -- For the first time ever, turf professionals can now purchase fertilizer pre-blended with NutriSmart granular humate soil amendment.

Performance Nutrition, of Hazlet, New Jersey, has entered into an exclusive agreement with EC Grow, of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, to produce and market a fertilizer in 23 states that is pre-blended with NutriSmart eco-fertilizer humate soil amendment. It will be sold under EC Grow’s Award Turf fertilizer brand for the turf and ornamental market.

A patented, environmentally friendly granular eco-fertilizer humate soil amendment, NutriSmart contains beneficial microbes that fix nitrogen from the atmosphere, solubilize phosphate and unlock potassium from the soil. Its ‘smart technology’ creates a balance of nutrients that make applied fertilizer more efficient and can replace up to 30% of soil applied N, P and K.

“We are seeing more states regulate the amount of nitrogen they will allow per application. By adding NutriSmart to our Award Turf Fertilizer blend, we can reduce the amount of nitrogen by up to 30% and our customers will achieve similar quality and color response,” said Chris Bluemke, marketing manager for EC Grow. “We are always looking for value-added products to bring to the T&O market. NutriSmart is a good fit for us because it is clean, consistent and easy to work with. Our customers benefit from healthier soil and better nutrient uptake.”

“Now that NutriSmart is available as a fertilizer blend under the Award Turf brand, turf professionals have a convenient way to apply NutriSmart with their fertilizer application without having to blend it themselves,” said Don Pucillo, president of Performance Nutrition. “EC Grow has an excellent reputation for producing high-quality fertilizers. We are thrilled to have fertilizers enhanced with NutriSmart available through EC Grow.”
