Our Greater Green Goal

Our Pledge

We believe in preserving and nourishing the waters and soils so they can be passed down to future generations. That's why we created our Greater Green Goal. We pledge to eliminate 100 million pounds of nitrates, 25 million pounds of phosphates, and 100 million ounces of concentrated pesticides from entering the universe by Earth Day 2025.  

Where are we today?

Our Philosophy

We believe in doing good by being good. By crafting products that build soil health, Holganix Bio 800+ provides the agronomic results fertilizer users need in a way that is naturally sustainable. For lawn care companies and golf courses, Holganix Bio 800+ provides a solution to reduce the need for fertilizers and pesticides without sacrificing agronomic results. For farmers, Holganix Bio 800+ increases fertilizer uptake by the plant, builds dense root systems, and ultimately increases crop yield. All while charging soils with the soil microbes they need to be productive. 

Fertilizers are an integral part of how the green industry delivers results and feeds the world. By championing our Greater Green Goal we are seeking to deliver agronomic tools that allow fertilizers users to increase nutrient uptake and reduce their reliance on fertilizers. 

Depending on the plant type, for each gallon of Holganix Bio 800+ used, we eliminate about 18 pounds of nitrates, 4 pounds of phosphate and 17 ounces ounce concentrated pesticides. 

Why We Do It

In the summer, Holganix CEO Barrett Ersek would spend his weekends fishing for striped bass in the Chesapeake Bay. Each year there was more and more conversation about the effects fertilizers were having on the fish population and marine life in the Chesapeake. At the time, Barrett was running HappyLawn a regional lawn care provider that serviced the area surrounding the Chesapeake Bay. Homeowners - HappyLawn’s customers, began to ask questions, Was HappyLawn’s Service Chesapeake Bay Safe? 

Those questions inspired Barrett to begin looking for answers. How could fertilizer users grow healthy plants, turf, and crops using fewer fertilizers and pesticides? 

In 2010, Holganix LLC was born. Centered around our pioneering microbial product Bio 800+, Holganix harnesses the power of over 800 soil microbes to boost plant and soil health.
