Fertilisers, the independent company supplying fertilisers
and crop protection to the market, claims to be the first company
to provide a comprehensive and integrated range of fertiliser and
crop protection products certified for use in organic production.
They are actively seeking independent distributors for their products
in countries outside the UK and point out that supermarkets in the
UK are keen for overseas growers to use well-known and certified
products on their crops.
Mark Law, Managing Director of Law Fertilisers, explains that the
company has been inspected and has satisfied the requirements of
the Soil Association standards for certified products. “Our
certificate of registration was issued recently and adds to certification
already attained from other Organic associations such as Organic
Farmers and Growers. This means that organic and indeed conventional
farmers can use this range of fertilisers and crop protection products
with the confidence that they are of renewable, natural origin and
are formulated to a very high standard for optimal availability
to the crop and easy and accurate application. We feel that we have
broken through the technical barrier when it comes to organic crop
inputs and this has now been recognised by the various certifying
Recently Soil Association certification for eleven fertiliser and
trace element products, including Laws High K, Laws High N, Laws
High P, Laws Calcium, Laws High P Plus and Laws Foliar N, as well
as boron, copper, iron, manganese and zinc has been granted. “We
also have two traditional and effective crop protection products
: Wetcol 3, a broad-spectrum copper-based fungicide for use in a
wide range of vegetable and fruit crops and Derris, an effective
broad-spectrum insecticide developed from the plant extracts of
Ruba-root (Derris elliptica) and containing rotenone.”
“Wetcol is a blend of purely naturally occurring ingredients
including copper as a tetracopper tricalcium sulphate and soluble
calcium, formulated as a stable dispersion. It contains its own
naturally-based spreaders and stickers which add to its effective
coverage, whilst maintaining its organic position. The product has
a very fine particle size of just 2 microns, resulting in better
leaf coverage and rainfastness, important in a mainly protectant-acting
fungicide,” explains Mark.
“Derris is an effective broad-spectrum, non selective insecticide
which offers good control of winged and biting insects including
aphids (both greenfly and blackfly), beetles, sawflies plus a bonus
effect on caterpillars, red spider mites and thrips. It shows low
risk of resistance build-up which is an increasing problem in many
crops and is non toxic to humans with a one day harvest interval,”
Mark points out that Laws’ product range is consistent and
effective as well as natural and safe to the operator, the environment
and the food being grown. “The natural components of our fertilisers
are also more readily available and more easily taken up by the
plant than synthetic equivalents, the slower release reduces leaching
and matches crop requirements.”
“The organic market is increasing both in the UK and abroad
and specialist growers are expected to produce crops of high quality
and yield, just like their conventional counterparts. UK growers
have been able to benefit from the use of our products and we would
like to offer this opportunity to organic growers abroad in Europe,
Africa, China, New Zealand and other countries. We are pro-actively
seeking business partners in these countries who can help distribute
and support our unique range of products to growers and would invite
any interested party to contact us directly to discuss ways of moving
forward,” says Mark.
