Functional Fertiliser | From the Ground Up.

Helping New Zealand farmers improve soil health and farm efficiency.

Functional Fertiliser is at the forefront of developing products that are beneficial to soil and crop requirements.

Regardless of what is grown, there is a dependency on soil – particularly the humus content, and humus is often referred to as the greatest storehouse of energy on our planet.

The more we can do to nourish and improve our soil, the longer we can farm profitably.

Supported by science.

Our pasture is doing really well as compared to when we moved here 4 yrs ago. It used to be the worst looking on the road now quite the opposite, a very rich green and all the stems standing up. All the bare patches have filled in and thatching all but disappeared.

Just a quick note to tell you the fertiliser I got off you has been AMAZING. I have the most wonderfully healthy and burgeoning gardens. And where I have used soil for potting mix, the results are spectacular.

This stuff is amazing. I have clover coming up where there was none before, thanks!!
