Sustainable Farming, the key mission behind Katek Fertilizers
Katek Fertilizers Australia is a business based on family. Owners David & Lexe Ernst took over Katek in 2008 and have watched son Nathanael and wife Kristin grow the business from a small factory producing four core products into a large scale operation producing an expanded product range for the Australian & International markets.
Katek’s signature fertilisers are based on fully composted, biologically activated poultry manure using a unique process to ensure this rich biodiversity is maintained in each and every pellet.
Sustainable farming is the key mission behind Katek Fertilizers, a desire to offer alternatives to chemical fertilisers with products that restore soil health, stimulate biology, increase plant availability of nutrients and build carbon content without compromising on yield or profit.
Katek supplies a wide range of industries, from home gardeners and landscapers to hobby farmers and commercial growers of all sizes. Katek Fertilizers are distributed all over Australia.
Celebrating 15 years of managing Katek’s operations, Nathanael looks after every stage of the production process, ensuring the perfect fertiliser goes out to our customers.
