AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer Gains Certification into USDA BioPreferred Program

AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer (NOF) has gained certification into the USDA BioPreferred Program. Under the program, products are considered biobased if they are composed wholly or significantly of biological ingredients — renewable plant, animal, marine or forestry materials.

Products certified in the program carry an easily recognized label icon to help consumers make informed choices. Claims about the presence and amount of biobased ingredients are third-party certified and strictly monitored by the USDA.

The “USDA certified biobased product” icon will soon appear on AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer marketing material. AGGRAND Natural Fertilizer will also be listed among products that meet the USDA requirements on the agency’s website at http://www.biopreferred.gov/.
