Agrowave range of fertilizers are approved and certified for commercialization in Ghana and are among few fertilizers selected for the Planting for Food and Job (PFJ) programme in Ghana due to its exceptional quality and potential to increase crop yield in fulfillment of the attainment of food security in Ghana.

Agrowave fertilizers are enhanced efficiency granulated fertilizers uniquely formulated to control nutrient release or to alter reactions that lead to nutrient losses. The granules are coated with polymers that specifically prevent especially nitrogen (N) among other essential nutrients from volatilization, immobilization, denitrification and leaching when they are applied to the soil and exposed to high temperature, moisture and micro-organisms. Thus, the availability of essential nutrients is improved and efficiently used by the crops at every stage of their growth giving farmers value for money.

Support to farmers and sustaining agriculture 

Agrowave engages farmers in sensitization programmes where our renowed agronomists educate them on how to apply fertilizers, plant seeds, spacing mechanisms, mode of pests and disease control and advice on the weather conditions suitable to plant various crops etc. Our Agronomists embark on periodic visits to farmer fields to monitor the progress and evaluate the modalities taught during the sensitization programmes. Agrowave seeks to achieve a more viable approach to improve upon our traditional way of farming and attain a sustainable and productive farming culture to serve our beloved nation.
