What Investors Should Know About Organic Fertilizer Stocks

On Dec. 9, the CDFA (California Department of Food & Agriculture) put a stop use notice on one particular type of organic fertilizer. The brand is called Agro Gold WS. 

Agro Gold WS has been contaminated by conventional and non-organic herbicides. As a result, the product doesn’t comply with the USDA National Organic Program. While Agro Gold WS is just one type of organic fertilizer, it’s a great example of what the industry is up against. Whether or not you should bite on organic fertilizer stocks depends on your time horizon, risk tolerance, and other factors.
