Sustainability

For Today & Tomorrow

We are Anuvia Plant Nutrients, the catalyst that helps agriculture fulfill its promise to become more sustainable, while at the same time, more productive. We are focused on the unique operations of commercial farms, enabling them to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and nutrient loss while improving yield and soil health. Because we work within current farming practices, processes and machinery, sustainability is virtually plug and play. Using our products, farms enjoy up to a five-times return on investment through increased yield, ensuring our technology is as effective for the farmer as it is for the planet.

Our technology was developed from decades of hard-won experience in agriculture, applied knowingly to the most challenging sustainability issues in modern farming’s complex operation chain. As a result, our solutions work within current agricultural processes, protocols, machinery and technologies, making it easy for some of the world’s largest and most sophisticated industry players to jump on board.

Management Team

Be it municipal organic resource processing, granular plant nutrient manufacturing and marketing, project development or finance, our team is highly experienced in all the areas critical to our present and future success.
