The problem

Farm Star-branded products address a variety of problems facing farmers today.

Maintaining healthy soil is critical to ensuring healthy crops and high yields. However, most soil in Kenya is deplete of core nutrients due to poor farming practices. To improve soil health, we need to add organic matter to the land. Most farmers use manure to address this issue. Evergrow Organic Fertilizer is an upgrade to the traditional practice of manure application.

What is Evergrow?

Evergrow is a high-quality, fully decomposed organic fertilizer that adds soil nutrients, improves soil structure, and increases the effect of chemical fertilizers. Apply Evergrow to your farm to see healthier crops and 30% higher yields this season.

Is Evergrow safe?

Evergrow is a high-quality and safe organic input for your farm. Plant material, minerals, and treated biosolids are combined and composted to create Evergrow. The heat generated in our thermophyllic aerobic digestion process eliminates harmful pathogens to make the product safe to use. After the processing period, the fertilizer cures and stabilizes and is then screened to produce the finished product. Finally, the quality and safety of our fertilizer is tested by independent laboratories using ISO certified processes, so you know you can rely on a consistently safe and good product.

This fertilizer from Farm Star has worked really well for me. I have used it on my peas and it has helped with the disease that caused my peas to dry up–now they don’t dry up! It has also helped increase flowering in my plants and increased my yield by a lot.
