Ferticell Explorer 16-0-0 is a technologically advanced plant-derived organic nitrogen that is the purest form of soy protein nitrogen available on the market today. Our one source manufacturing process in Malaga, Spain is very controlled, unlike other manufacturers. The strict control helps maintain quality and consistency while we are continually improving the manufacturing process to achieve the purest form of plant-derived soy protein nitrogen available. Ferticell Explorer 16-0-0 is a minimum of 98.6% pure with the remaining "impurities" being moisture content, there is not another product on the market today that compares! Compared to competitors' soy protein nitrogen goods, Ferticell Explorer 16-0-0 has a much higher carbon content, giving Explorer a much richer, darker color. Carbon is important for plants, soil, and soil microorganisms, and is a fundamental component of life. "Healthy Microorganisms = Healthy Soil = Healthy Plants = Greater Yields" has been said and the chain that forms the bridge between each of these is carbon. Explorer 16-0-0, our soy protein nitrogen, has an additional carbon portion to carry nutrients to soil microbes and the plants themselves. Our carbon-complexed hydrolysate nutrients are taken in quicker and more efficiently than other protein fertilizers since plants and microbes are, basically, carbon processors. Explorer products contain a special and patented ratio of balanced cell extracts that are essential to the 98.6 percent amino acid content. Ferticell Explorer 10-0-0 Liquid is derived from utilizing 7 lbs. Ferticell Explorer 16-0-0 per gallon of water.


In 2011, Ferticell was the first fertilizer company to record soy protein nitrogen on the organic fertilizer sector. Introducing Ferticell Explorer Plant Protein Nitrogen 13-0-0 to the market has revolutionized the organic fertilizer industry, enabling farmers to quickly raise N without the risks associated with inputs from animals and manure. In addition to carbon and amino acids, the nitrogen content is 15% higher for organic nitrogen and 51% higher for nitrate-nitrogen, ensuring the rapid, highly effective release of nutrients to plant and soil microbes and increasing the efficiency of plant production. Unlike Ferticell®, our rivals are not single-sourced or own their facilities, they have numerous brokerage methods that do not secure or guarantee consistency, leading to impurities of the actual product, less refinement.  Ferticell Explorer Liquid 10-0-0 is the highest liquid protein nitrogen accessible in the United States and approved for organic use. When crunching numbers, you can see that Ferticell Explorer technology does not cost, it pays, in terms of consistency, purity, and efficiency.

Why Use Plant Derived Protein Nitrogen

Do you use all four sources of nitrogen in your existing fertility program? Most everyone understands that the first three sources of nitrogen are nitrate, ammonia, and urea. The most misunderstood form of Nitrogen and the most vital is soy protein hydrolysate. It is necessary to rotate or balance all four sources of nitrogen in an effective fertility program.

Incorporation of protein nitrogen during high-stress times is the best way to maintain healthy crop development, even during stressful times for the crop. Protein Nitrogen can never build up or become harmful to soils as synthetic nitrogen has done in the past. It will also not leach from your soils, which has created issues with groundwater pollution that we are seeing today. With soy protein nitrogen, even in cool periods and warm periods, the release curve remains predictable. Ammonia forms of nitrogen become fairly risky during high temperatures, and nitrate forms of nitrogen become unreliable in their conversion during cool temperatures. Protein Nitrogen does not contain any of the risks or limiting factors typically associated with conventional forms of nitrogen.

Application Uses 

Explorer can be blended with conventional nitrogen to lower total N requirements or used as a stand-alone product for use under high temperatures and environmental stress. This revolutionary technology reduces the demand for fossil fuel produced fertilizers and supports environmentally sound statements all while reducing requirements for additional plant stimulants or hormones. 

Media Uses

Explorer may be used with all soil and soilless media, including Coco Coir, and is compatible with all nutrient programs. Always check for pH and CF levels.

Application Rates 

Store in a cool, dry place. Do not store in direct sunlight.

Container Application: 1-2 tablespoons per 1-gallon of water as a soil/root drench or foliar spray to give a boost of N.

I have a greenhouse that unfortunately does not get the ideal sunlight due to its location on the north side of my home. I have been using Rocky Mountain BioAg’s Quantum Growth Organic Total for over a year and have seen a dramatic increase in plant growth and vegetable yield compared to past years. Highly recommend the product.
