  • Growcentia manufactures organically-derived plant biostimulants
  • The company is developing premier probiotic products for agriculture
  • Growcentia’s market-leading organic brand is Mammoth Microbes

Headquartered in Fort Collins, Colorado, Growcentia focuses on enhancing plant growth and minimizing the environmental impacts of agriculture. The company increases crop yields by enhancing nutrient use efficiency with advanced microbial probiotics (live microbes). Growcentia employs a proprietary method developed by a team of PhD soil microbiologists. This innovative method creates a consortia of bacteria that have synergistic qualities for vital nutrient cycling functions in the growing cycle and are highly effective. Therefore, Growcentia is able to combine the most functionally effective species to deliver innovative solutions to growers.

Fundamentally, Growcentia targets naturally occurring soil microbes that perform a specific nutrient cycling function; it then creates and manufactures organically-derived plant biostimulants, providing a solution for that function. Its products work to help growers and farmers maximize the health of their soils or growth media and increases nutrient uptake. The company’s emphasis is on boosting plant health, quality and yields, while at the same time decreasing fertilizer runoff.

Microbes colonize the soil and release enzymes. They are used by plants to increase nutrient uptake and promote strong growth. Growcentia notes that “functionally targeted microbials can greatly enhance the bio-availability of nutrients, boost disease resistance, inhibit the growth of parasites, and enhance drought tolerance”. The company’s manufacturing process utilizes plant extracts as a foundation for microbial growth in commercial-sized bio-reactors.

Danfeng Song, Salam Ibrahim and Saeed Hayek, in the book Recent Application of Probiotics in Food and Agricultural Science (, stated, “The plant probiotic bacteria have been isolated and commercially developed for use in the biological control of plant diseases or biofertilization. These microorganisms have fulfilled important functions for plant[s] as they antagonize various plant pathogens, induce immunity, or promote growth.”

Growcentia is concentrating on further developing first-rate biostimulant products for the high value specialty crop agricultural industry. Its main microbial brand is Mammoth, and its market-leading phosphorous solubilizing technology product is Mammoth P. The Mammoth brand is focused on delivering innovative solutions to the cannabis and hemp industry, and it is seeing great adoption with both indoor and in-field cultivators. The company’s P technology is university-tested by scientists at Colorado State University and is a patented, OMRI-certified natural product.

The company’s Mammoth P (phosphorous) for maximizing yield and quality was the first functionally-targeted, organically-derived microbial inoculant for the cannabis and hemp industry. It is a liquid formula of beneficial bacteria. Mammoth P can be applied directly to soil, coco or other growth media, as well as recirculating hydroponic systems. It is scientifically proven to grow bigger buds ( Mammoth P is proven to increase dry weight yields by, on average, 16 percent across all management practices and nutrient lines. The beneficial bacteria in Mammoth P are akin to enzyme factories. They continually make enzymes in the growth media and root zone to assist in delivering nutrients to plants.

Growcentia, with its unique products and dedication to better and sustainable agriculture, is moving forward with advanced microbial additives. With its commitment to quality, the company extensively tests all of its products in the laboratory, greenhouse and field to guarantee effectiveness. Growcentia’s goal is to develop and market premier agricultural products and practices that benefit farmers and consumers alike.
