Serving farmers for 30+ years

Quality nutrients spread accurately for sustainable food production.


The Fertmark programme was established to give New Zealand farmers confidence in the quality of their fertilisers and associated advertising. The Fertmark tick means the product has been independently audited to ensure that what’s on the label is what will be applied.


The Spreadmark scheme is a quality assurance programme that puts economic and environmental farmer / grower outcomes first by ensuring placement of fertilisers are in locations where they can deliver the best agricultural and environmental outcomes.

Fertiliser Quality Council

Set up by farmers for farmers, the Fertiliser Quality Council (FQC) is responsible for the Fertmark and Spreadmark programmes.

The council provides a forum for the discussion of issues facing the industry and serves the primary sector by ensuring fertiliser nutrients are independently verified as true to label and promoting and overseeing accurate fertiliser and nutrient placement. By using the Fertmark and Spreadmark schemes, the sector can be assured of the best agricultural, environmental and economic outcomes.
