Environmental sustainability is an integral part of our company mission at The Andersons. 

We understand our customers’ innate desire to have products which contain effective, natural, and above all, safe ingredients. We believe in creating beautiful outdoor living spaces while minimizing our impact on the planet. For those who would prefer a hybrid fertility approach, we also carry products containing both traditional and organic fertilizer sources. 

Why choose OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) Products? 

The OMRI Listed® Seal assures the suitability of products to be used for certified organic production, handling, and processing. For turfgrass managers and specialty crop growers who desire products which meet OMRI criteria, please see our designated line listings here


Biomend fertilizers feature all natural and organic nutrient sources and contain no biosolids, manure, or wastewater byproducts. These odorless products provide both quick greening and longer-term nitrogen feeding. 


7-1-2 INNOVA® 

This organic fertilizer source is derived as a byproduct of soybean feed processing and yields a fertilizer high in plantbased amino acids. It is a great alternative source of nitrogen and has an ideal NPK ratio for turfgrass.


HUMIC DG™ - 75 AND 240 SGN 

Humic DG is a dry humate granule featuring The Andersons’ Dispersing Granule (DG) Technology to ensure maximum particle dispersion upon watering. The addition of humates into your current fertility program can increase overall plant quality and hardiness.



Black Gypsum DG is a homogenous granular soil amendment containing gypsum, humate, and a humic acid precursor. Gypsum acts as a soil conditioner helping to ‘flocculate’ sodic soil particles while also flushing harmful salts and excess sodium buildup. Humates and humid acid precursor aid in stimulating soil microbiology populations. This product also features DG Technology, ensuring maximum particle dispersion upon watering.



Humic DG CharX is a 50/50 blend of humic acid and biochar in a dust free, spherical and dispersible granule. The Andersons Dispersible Granule (DG) technology provides hundreds of thousands of small particles of humic acid and biochar after being exposed to water. 


Phosphorus is a vital plant nutrient that is necessary for plant energy production (ATP) and root development. SmartPhos DG 0-20-0 is an OMRI Listed phosphorous fertilizer derived from rock phosphate. The addition of our patented dispersing granule (DG) carrier allows for quick product dispersion into the soil following irrigation or precipitation.  


Pelletized lime (calcitic limestone) provides quick pH adjustments in the soil compared to traditional dolomitic lime products. Soil pH adjustments to the 5-6 range are necessary to ensure good micronutrient availability in the soil.


Pelletized gypsum (calcium sulfate) supplies both calcium and sulfur to your plants. Gypsum also improves sodic soil structure and can aid in the flushing of harmful salt and sodium buildup.
