Organic food scraps fertilizer approved
WISErg, a bioclean technology company, announced that its WISErganic All Purpose Organic Liquid Fertilizer passed inspection by the California Department of Food & Agriculture (CDFA) and is now approved for use by California organic growers. WISErganic is compliant with all CDFA regulations as well as the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Organic Program standards. With this certification, California's organic crop producers and environmentally conscious landscapers now have a natural alternative to fish fertilizer, one with no offensive odor and even higher levels of nitrogen and other nutrients required for healthy soil.
WISErganic is a premium organic liquid fertilizer that is derived from discarded food scraps using an innovative, low-impact technology process that rescues and reuses organic material before it begins to decompose. This is an important consideration given that food scraps account for more than 20 percent of all landfill methane emissions. With WISErganic, California based food growers -- from agribusinesses to backyard gardeners -- now have a pesticide-free product for replenishing soil nutrients that won't clog irrigation systems, leads to sustained crop performance and is produced in an environmentally sustainable way.
"We don't look at food scraps as waste, but as an untapped resource for a complete circle that takes us from grower to grocer and back to the grower," noted Larry LeSueur, CEO, WISErg. "By using the WISErg Harvester and our patent-pending conversion process, we can capture and stabilize food scraps at a retail, restaurant or campus facility before they decompose and become unusable. The process is completely natural, produces no harmful by-products or emissions and results in WISErganic, a nutrient-rich fertilizer for organic food production."
WISErganic is also certified and approved for use by organic growers by the Washington State Department of Agriculture's Organic Program.
