Insect fertilizer
reinventing soil and plant nutrition

Our soils are one of our most precious yet underestimated resources. We rely on them:

  • for food and water – the UN estimates that 95% of our food stems from them
  • to preserve our ecosystems – the GIS Sol estimates that 1/4 of the world biodiversity resides within our soils
  • to fight against climate change: 1500 billion tons of organic carbon are stored into our soils which is 2 to 3 times more than in the atmosphere

Preserving them while ensuring sufficient productivity to feed the growing world population is a challenge we need to tackle. Organic fertilizers such as the frass – insects droppings – can be part of the solution by both boosting both soils agronomic performance and microbial activities.

A natural organic fertilizer

InnovaFeed has developed a natural and fully transparent organic fertilizer to be used in both conventional and organic crops. InnovaFeed’s fertilizer is a by-product of its insect farm that:

  • consists entirely in insect droppings of Hermetia Illucens phytophagous larvaes fed with a 100% vegetable and guaranteed GMO-free substrate
  • no solvent, no additives
  • Insect frass is 100% natural and transparent, made out of the droppings of .
  • displays a balanced N, P, K profile (3-4-3) making it fit for all crops (viticulture, cereals, arboriculture, vegetables)
  • is rich in organic matter (>75%) and beneficial bacteria to enhance the absorption of nutrients into our soils and boost microbial activity

Insect frass can be used in organic farming according to CE 834/2007 and benefits from a marketing authorization from local authorities.

The ability to regenerate soils

InnovaFeed’s organic fertilizer contains more than 75% organic matter that contributes to regenerate soils and improve fertility on the long run.

Its high concentration in organic matter:

  • enhances soils structure to facilitate development of a strong root system
  • improves water retention and reduces nutrients leaching
  • activates natural processes of degradation by the soil microbiome

Finally, for each ton of frass spread on lands, it’s 18kg of CO2 that is stored lastingly in the soils.
