This partner can help with the Right Place, Right Rate, Right Source, Right Time,

Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technologies, Inc., is a clean water company that designs, builds and markets a proprietary nutrient recovery technology that sustainably transforms phosphorus and nitrogen recovered from municipal and industrial water treatment facilities into a high-value, eco-friendly fertilizer, sold and marketed by Ostara as Crystal Green®. Crystal Green enhanced efficiency fertilizer offers plant-available, slow-release nutrients, sustainably made from a renewable source of phosphorus. Formulated as 5-28-0 + 10% magnesium, Crystal Green offers consistent, plant-available nutrients resulting in greater fertilizer efficiency, lower application rates, and reduced nutrient loss. Due to its low-water soluble/highly-citrate soluble formulation and crystalline compound, Crystal Green’s season-long release of plant-available nutrients reduce the risk of leaching and runoff, and minimizes environmental damage, protecting sensitive regional waterways. Crystal Green can be combined with other fertilizer inputs to create a complete blend and is used by an established network of blenders and distributors throughout the US and in parts of Europe through-out the agriculture, turf, and nursery markets. Ostara currently operates seven nutrient recovery facilities in North America and Europe that produce Crystal Green with several more in development. Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, Ostara is the recipient of numerous awards including the 2011 Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum, and being named to the Global Cleantech 100 for the past five years.

Our mission as a clean water company is not only about producing a premium eco-friendly fertilizer, it is about finding solutions for phosphorus sustainability, improved water quality, fertilizer runoff, nutrient stewardship, and higher yielding, healthier, crop growth.  We understand that 4R Nutrient Stewardship involves best management practices that enhance environmental protection, expand production, increase farmer profitability, and improve sustainability and we believe 4R Nutrient Stewardship is important to our business because it supports and aligns with our goals to minimize environmental damage from fertilizer run-off, while supporting sustainable farming practices that effectively maximize efficiency and productivity. Nutrient stewardship supports using the right fertilizer source, at the right rate, at the right time with the right placement.  As a renewable source of plant-activated, eco-friendly phosphorus, plus nitrogen and magnesium, Crystal Green reduces the risk of leaching and run-off, reduces in season applications, improves premium yields, and helps make practicing nutrient stewardship easier than ever by remaining plant-available all season-long.  We believe that when farmers and growers have the support and technology they need to manage inputs and maximize production and profitability sustainably everybody wins.  4R Nutrient stewardship incorporates best management practices that are effective, ethical, economical and environmentally friendly, supporting the goals of Ostara, and the performance of Crystal Green.

Crystal Green® enhanced efficiency fertilizer is Ostara’s signature fertilizer.  It provides a right fertilizer source for farmers, and due to it’s unique performance supports all of the 4R’s in Nutrient Stewardship.
