The ‘marks’ may only be used by Fertmark or Spreadmark approved companies.
Only companies whose fertiliser and nutrient products have been independently audited, and approved, may display the Fertmark tick on their packaging.
Farmers can be confident that fertilisers supplied by Fertmark registered companies are reliable and, if used properly, do not pose hazards to food safety, the environment or animal welfare.

The proper and even placement of fertilisers is of considerable agronomic benefit to farmers and growers. Accurate distribution will also help protect the environment from undesirable ‘off target’ waste.
