Made with animal matter, manure, and vegetable matter, organic fertilizer is a big business in the United States now that’s approaching $1 billion in annual sales. Due to lockdowns across North America, we anticipate swifter growth of sales to support home gardens than previous projections over the next two years.

With some fertilizers being made from such as animal wastes including meat processing, peat, manure, slurry, and guano, the selection available is wide ranging and covers every niche need for commercial and home gardeners.

Valued at $952 million dollars in 2019 in the United States, the natural fertilizer remains an emerging growth sector. According to reports, China is the number one producer of fertilizer with nearly one third of global fertilizer being produced in the country. This could also create an opportunity for producers in the United States to create an All-American branded product.

If you’re struggling to identify a brand name for your fertilizer or compost business, look no further. We’ve organized some of the best available name ideas in this industry below.

Ways to Differentiate Your Brand

You might think all fertilizer is pretty much the same. But that’s not the case at all. One of the easiest ways to get recognized in a market is to provide something a little bit different than the competition. This means niching down and finding a subset of customers that truly love using your product.

The worst thing you could do while entering this market is to start an all-purpose fertilizer company. One major competitor is Potash Corporation (POT). This company does billions in sales every year and has a broad transportation and logistics network. This is not someone you want to go head to head with.

Instead, consider modeling your enterprise after Moo Doo, a compost and cow manure blend that’s made in Vermont. This product is sold at independent home gardening centers and online. This company has been able to create a superior small-batch product that’s used by serious home gardeners. The fact that the company brands themselves and local and uses a unique blend of fertilizer ingredients is an approach that you can model too.

Here are a few ways to make a unique fertilizer product: 

  • Find a unique source of fertilizer. Cow manure is a well-known ingredient, but lesser known sources like chicken litter could also be tested. As an example, researchers discovered poultry waste produces higher yields for cotton crops. Exploring ways other animal waste could be utilized to grow certain crops.
  • Highlight specific nutrients. Different nutrients will benefit certain plants more than others. As an example, flowers require more phosphorus and potassium to grow. By making a fertilizer that’s high in these nutrients you could create a specialty fertilize that serves this subset of the market.
  • Test unique blends. In many markets, you don’t need to create something that’s 100% unique. Instead you could develop compost and fertilizer blends that aren’t widely available in stores.
  • Support local. An increasing number of consumers want to support local companies and families instead of massive corporations. One of the easiest ways to differentiate a company would be to call it North Dakota Fertilizer Co. as an example. This also makes that product appear more high-end and small-batch. Both of these are appealing elements that will allow you to charge more than competitors for a similar product.

We hope this article has provided some food for thought with your agriculture business. What type of fertilizer are you planning to produce and how much? We’d love to learn what you’re planning in the comments below.
