Growcentia aims to help growers maximize the health of their soils or growth media to enhance plant health and yields, while minimizing environmental impacts of agriculture.  MAMMOTH P, Growcentia’s first product, is a university tested, patented microbial biostumulant that naturally elevates phosphorus and micronutrient availability to support healthy virgorous plant growth. It is used during vegetative and flowering stages in all media – from hydroponics to organic potting mixtures to soils.

How an Idea
Became a Company


Growcentia was founded by a team of three CSU soil microbiologists with PhD degrees that share a passion for enhancing soil health and promoting sustainable agriculture. Using innovative proprietary technology, this team developed an approach to identify and apply nature’s very best microbes to improve nutrient availability to plants.
