NP MIX is our latest introduction, and was very well received by nearly all who grew trials with it. It is similar to our LIGHT MIX in all but two ways: NP stands for "no phosphate" in the compost used as a plant food ingredient. The downside to not adding phosphate to the compost is that the loss of both nitrogen and carbon were significantly higher, resulting in the need for a nitrogenous additive. We add blood meal for this, and the result is actually better nitrogen feeding for seedling with a similar content in the mix. Phosphorous levels are lower, but not so as to affect even sensitive crops. This product meets the National Standards for "USDA ORGANIC" certified growers, as well as MOFGA and NOFA standards
