NutriGrow is a soil solutions company built on a commitment to responsible biosolids management in local communities.
Biosolids are an endlessly renewable resource. Working with landowners, governments, biosolids producers, and other stakeholders, NutriGrow identifies innovative ways throughout the supply chain to put biosolids to good use.
Environmental Sustainability in Action
Every municipality has to manage the biosolids generated in their community. When you send biosolids to a landfill or incinerate them, you lose an opportunity to use them for something good. The sustainable way to handle the waste our communities produce is to recycle it into something we can use again. Soils enhanced with biosolids are safe, socially responsible, and environmentally sound, and are used around the world to reclaim disturbed areas, develop land, and improve nutrient-poor soil.
Customized Solutions to Meet Client, Partner, and Community Needs
It delivers a full suite of macro and micronutrients, making it a superior source of plant food over synthetic fertilizers. It has slow release elements that distribute the nutrients over time, limiting the need for future fertilization. Studies have shown that biosolids have beneficially distributed valuable nutrients over three years and in some cases up to five. It has a proven ability to improve soil structure thereby reducing runoff and erosion. NutriGrow’s water retention qualities enable water to be stored in the soil, reducing the impacts of water runoff and limits costly irrigation.
Improving the Land Organically
We manufacture soils enhanced with biosolids—an endlessly renewable resource—because they restore nutrient-rich organic matter back the land for the benefit of plants, people, and the environment. The nutrients and organic matter found in composted biosolids and amended soils feed our land, improving its stability, health, and fertility over time. Adding biosolids to our soils helps reduce runoff and soil erosion, boosts plant growth, and limits the need for chemical fertilizers and irrigation water.

NutriGrow and its parent company, Arrow, have safely and successfully handled biosolids in communities across British Columbia for more than 20 years.
