Growers know that they can depend on Drexel for consistent quality at an affordable price. As the best value in the market, Drexel delivers maximum yield at a minimal cost.
Drexel Product Lines
Drexel products fall into the following categories:
Drexel Product Formulations
Drexel has positioned itself as a leader in product formulation development. Thus, we provide the above-mentioned products, in the following formulations:
Aqueous Liquids-These formulations are true solutions, whereas the active ingredients are totally dissolved to maximum concentrations in water. Since the active ingredient is already dissolved as a concentrate in water, mixing at field rates is problem-free. Drexel’s aqueous concentrates also contain wetting agents that promote coverage and penetration.
Liquid Flowable Formulations-Flowable formulations are finely ground so that products remain suspended during storage, allowing maximum active ingredient levels to be incorporated into the formulation. Careful design and control of the suspension and dispersion agents in the formulations promote stability and trouble-free spray solutions when mixed at field dilution rates.
Water Dispersible Granules-Dry flowable granules are comprised of finely ground particles in order to achieve maximum dispersion, suspension, and coverage. Drexel’s water-dispersible granules are properly sized for coarse and fine fractions in order to minimize dust and efficient handling and mixing of the product. Our water-dispersible granules contain the highest achievable active ingredient levels obtainable in a water-dispersible granule formulation.
Wettable Powders-Utilizing our unique milling process, Drexel offers a line of wettable-powder formulations that are ground for the lowest achievable particle size for maximum coverage, suspension, and dispersion as a spraying material.
Emulsifiable Concentrates-Drexel’s product line of emulsifiable concentrates are made from very pure organic solvent carriers, which allow maximum active ingredient concentrations to be formulated. Since these are true solutions, no insoluble materials are present, which could result in plugging of nozzles. Careful control of the emulsifier and surfactant properties allow for easy mixing and dispersion of the products in water.

First established in Hollywood, California in 1918 by William H. Atwill as National Chemical NACCO, as a distributor for Mallinkrodt reagent chemicals and Eastman Kodak company. A few years later in1921 the company began to supply its own proprietary photographic chemicals to the growing Hollywood movie industry and also developed chemical specialty products for the metal, automobile and cleaning applications.
Prior to World War II the company’s sales focus was the southern California area. However in 1944 John F. Atwill, succeeded his father and moved the Company to downtown Los Angeles in the early 1950’s rapidly expanded and diversified the product line to include marine and petroleum chemical specialties, industrial, aircraft and water treatment chemicals.
As the Company continued to expand it moved to a new 5 acre manufacturing facility in 1956 and Incorporated as National Research & Chemical Company.
Sales’ offices were located in the metropolitan cities of Hamburg, Munich, Tokyo, Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Sydney, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Sunnyvale, California. Satellite manufacturing facilities were located in Tokyo, Hamburg, New York, Mexico City and Sunnyvale.
The early 1970’s opened an opportunity to produce electronic printed circuit board chemicals and marked the beginning of Grow More fertilizers and Micronutrients for agriculture and horticulture.
The development of agricultural chelated micronutrients derived from knowledge gained in the formulation of boiler, power generating and water treatment chemicals.
In the 1980’s was a time of rapid expansion for agricultural, horticultural, animal health products, retail small packages for the lawn and garden markets. This time period also marked a decline in market share for electronics, water treatment and industrial chemicals.
The 1980’s also marks the time of a Company name change transition from NACCO (National Research and Chemical Company) to Grow More, Inc. Today our products are distributed worldwide and throughout the Western United States through a dealer/distributor network.
World headquarters are located in Gardena, California, an industrial manufacturing area located Midway between the port of Los Angeles and Los Angeles City, twenty minutes from the Los Angeles International Airport and ten minutes away from the port of Los Angeles. Corporate Headquarters lodge manufacturing facilities and research laboratories, making the company basically self-sufficient in the total implementation of product quality control and most new projects.
Two manufacturing facilities with one served by rail road that includes 5 powder production units with an annual capacity of 60 million pounds, with capacities to spray dry, vacuum dry and centrifuge.
The liquid production facility capabilities include exothermic and endothermic reactors, evaporation, extraction, emulsification, ammonation, esterification and reduction reaction (acid, alkaline) with a annual capacity exceeding 3.5 million gallons.
Over the last seven decades Grow More has evolved to its present status as a company, which solves problems through applied research. The strength created by the company results from the application of scientific methology. Constant achievement through applied research describes in brief the total commitment provided by Grow More products and personnel. This happens through quantitative analysis, and quality control. The high degree of professionalism, which exists at Grow More is prominent among the many reasons why customers continue to rely on the firm.
Huma Gro Turf is a line of products developed and manufactured by Bio Huma Netics, Inc. of Gilbert, Arizona. Bio Huma Netics started developing high efficiency liquid soil health and plant nutrition products in 1973. The Micro Carbon Technology® (MCT) that we use as the base of all our ingredients is proven to be many times more efficient than conventional fertilizers; several times more efficient than granular fertilizers and a few times more efficient than the highest quality chelates. The extremely small molecule size in our MCT makes the difference.
Bio Huma Netics, Inc. was founded in 1973 by scientists Dr. Jordan Smith and Mr. Don Organ when they made the first agricultural application of a unique humate material from a mine in the Northwestern United States. This material, rich in organic acids, and minerals laid down over time in fresh water, when applied to farm soils improved soil conditions, increased the mineral content of plants and accelerated nutrient uptake.
By 1981, Dr. Smith and Mr. Organ had developed the proprietary technology to extract organic acids, soluble minerals and other beneficial organic components from this unique material. This extract contains Bio Huma Netics’ Micro Carbon Technology® and is the foundation ingredient used in all HUMA GRO®, HUMA GRO® TURF, and Probiotic Solution® products. Micro Carbon Technology® is combined with other beneficial components to create over 70 products the company produces to improve soils, improve plant nutrition, and water treatment. The company has expanded under a manufacturing focus. Bio Huma Netics, Inc. today is an exciting dynamic growing company.
The two most important components of your soil are a high-energy organic material and a balanced, active microbial population. Feed this soil with low-salt, natural nutrients and you have an efficient, effective, and eco-friendly growing environment. These are the products that Humate International produces and sells. Our granular and liquid HUMATEs are the highest energy organics commercially available and our BIOSYST microbial inoculants and support materials were the first to identify and fill the need for a broad-based and effective microbial soil environment.
The unique characteristics and benefits of our HUMATE and BIOSYST products are many, but the most significant are that they:
Complex nutrients and trace minerals to release them from the soil colloid.
Improve the uptake of nutrients through plant roots and leaves.
Build soil structure to eliminate layering and improve air and water movement.
Reduce the pressure from pathogens and insects.
Stimulate microbial activity to create a more active, “living” soil.
Cleanse the soil of toxins, both natural and man-made.
Eliminate the extremes of too much or too little soil moisture.
The HUMATE organics and BIOSYST microbial products from Humate International provide efficient nutrients in both granular and liquid forms and a broad spectrum of active and effective microorganisms. The results are a properly balanced soil, deep and massive root systems, and healthy, stress-resistant plants with the correct balance of nutrients and trace minerals. These plants have an increased resistance to external stresses from pathogens and insects, require less nutrient inputs and water, and grow faster to a marketable size.

“It is estimated that one-sixth of the world’s soils have already been degraded by water and wind erosion. Land-use change is a direct and immediate cause of erosion: most changes of land use unfortunately increase the risk of erosion.”
Erosion control is a growing problem.
Today’s erosion control industry evolved out of the simple idea that mitigating erosion and sedimentation is mostly a physical/mechanical problem. That is, if you can stop rain or wind from detaching dirt and carrying it downstream to deposit somewhere unintended, you have achieved erosion control. This kind of thinking has generated a myriad of products and solutions that all have one thing in common… they are designed to hold soil in place and they are designed to last… Granted, this is a good thing in some applications where natural vegetation is not an option, but in the vast majority of land reclamation applications, the goal is to get the land back to a natural state at some point.
In 2010, a soil scientist and an engineer from the industry decided to take a different point of view… What if erosion control really is a Growing Problem? That is… what if you could boost the ecosystem and rapidly grow vegetation on the site before significant erosion occurred? There would be no need for durable, persistent (and expensive) erosion control solutions. You could get all the erosion control benefits of natural vegetation along with the aesthetic value of a natural looking landscape. Countless agronomic studies over the last 30 years have cited sustained vegetation as the best long term erosion control solution. But barren soil (typical site subsoil) alone does not support good vegetation growth. Plants need a full topsoil ecosystem to flourish. So how do you get from barren subsoil to vegetated topsoil quickly and economically?
The answer is in soil science and natural soil building cycle. Topsoil in the environment builds naturally at a rate controlled by a number of well-studied variables in the ecosystem. Under normal conditions, topsoil can take from a year to hundreds of years to develop naturally. Under the right conditions, you can accelerate the rate of topsoil development dramatically by tweaking the right variables. This concept is the basis for our company and our products.
Organic Earth Industries, Inc. formed in 2012 with the goal of applying soil science and agronomic methods to the problem of erosion control. Part of the solution is in optimizing the soil chemistry to provide the right levels of mineral macronutrients. Part of the solution is in designing the optimal organic growth medium and plant meals to drive germination. Part of the solution is in creating the optimal biological culture including beneficial bacteria and fungi to jumpstart root growth and the decomposition of organic material into micronutrients. Part of the solution is in designing the matrix of mulching fibers and bonding agents to provide the temporary erosion, temperature, and moisture control. The final part of the solution is in designing the system of all of these components to work together and decompose at appropriate rates to provide plant available micronutrients as they are needed. That’s it.
Our research and field applications experience over the last 3 years has led us to develop of a line of hydraulically applied HGM2 (hydraulic growth medium + erosion control mulch) products for a myriad of different applications from steep slope work in land reclamation projects to residential lawn work in new housing construction.
We’re proud of our products and our approach. Our best advertisement is to put these products on the dirt and see for yourself.
Established in 1922, Plant Marvel Laboratories pioneered and popularized the use of water soluble fertilizers. We introduced our original 12-31-14 General Purpose Hi Phosphate formulation over 90 years ago helping to fuel the growth of soilless growing and hydroponics. Some years later we found a way to incorporate soluble forms of minor and trace elements into our expanding line of soluble N-P-K fertilizers. This became the first commercial fertilizer to deliver a total nutrient feed to crops without fear of burning and with unparalleled ease of application. It provided almost instant response because all nutrients were in a form the plants could utilize immediately. We called it Nutriculture.
Over the years, we helped pioneer the concept of foliar feeding and widespread use of water solubles in the commercial market. But our most important innovation has been the incorporation of all necessary trace elements into every N-P-K formula we manufacture. Today this practice is becoming standard with all fertilizer manufacturers.
Throughout the years Plant Marvel Laboratories has grown with the industry it services. We began by selling our fertilizers to florists and growers. Today the number of fertilizer formulas we stock is over fifty, and we have developed another 200 or more special non-stock formulas. Each of these was designed to promote or overcome a specific growth characteristic.

As a superintendent or a distributor to golf courses you know the demand for superior results on every tee, every green, and every fairway. Progressive Turf has the sustainable solution for you!
We offer proprietary organically based, technologically advanced, liquid foliar fertilizers designed to improve turf grass color without promoting excessive top growth.
Progressive Turf started out in the golf course fertilizer industry and specifically tailored our Turf Foundation TM (10-3-5) and Greater Green TM (5-0-7) to meet the needs of high caliber courses situated in the most demanding climates. Our proprietary organic compound approach reduces the dependence on N-P-K as the primary source of nutrition and minerals unlike traditional fertilizers. Our products also contain all major, secondary, and minor mineral elements available in chelated form, a balanced nitrogen complex, and high levels of soluble carbohydrates, to enrich the soil profile and encourage microbe based mineral nutrient availability and uptake.
Our product offering decreases the heavy carbohydrate demand by turf grass to support top growth, which allows for the allocation of the carbohydrate reserve to encourage lateral growth, tillering, and other processes that contribute to improved color density, vigor, and improved root system development – even during cooler growing conditions.
Progressive Turf fertilizer can be mixed with other technical materials so that you can spray less often, and save time, labor and fuel. Progressive Turf’s superior formulations offer focused delivery of nutrients, and dramatically reduces leaching, volatilization, and other waste.

Solutions 4 Earth® is a soil and environmental science company. We specialize in next-generation, non-toxic nutrients to maximize yield and quality, and we do it in an environmentally responsible way.
The Soul of Agriculture
We’re different from ‘fertilizer’ companies. We work with the soil, one of earth’s most valuable resources, the ‘soul of agriculture’. Soil is the original recycler, using minerals, water, nutrients and organic matter to nurture life. Our products feed your soil microbes as well as your plants, a combination that helps root growth, contributing to increased yields and quality.
We also work with microbes and bacteria to digest animal, food processing, and municipal waste. The resulting effluent can be nutritional for crops and safer for the environment.
The Soul’s Secret
Plant life depends upon soil. Working with soil microbes and soil chemistry helps improve water and nutrient uptake, germination, emergence, and greater root mass.
Leading growers use soil management strategies – nutrient management, reduced tillage, cover crops – in their efforts to improve fertility, maximize yield, and reduce ecological impact. We agree with that effort, offering products that help create balanced and sustainable agricultural environments.
Sustainability: a Competitive Advantage
If you care for the soil, it will continue to produce for you for years to come. Neglect your soil, and you will need ever increasing inputs for gradually decreasing results.
Our passion for sustainable agriculture, gardening and for producing beautiful turf. We love the great outdoors and share a growing world-wide commitment to a sustainable world. We view organic gardening as recreational therapy and appreciate that sustainable farming is one of life’s greatest treasures.
Food is a ‘language’ spoken in every culture. Making this language organic allows for an important cultural revolution. We need to take a stand and promote diversity and biodiversity instead of chemical toxins and environmental waste. In the short term organic farming may be more complex and labor-intensive but ultimately it is the wiser choice for health, flavor, society and for our environment. Celebrate the culture at your table.

At TerraMax, research is the backbone of our business.
Founded in 1998 by 2 scientists
Develops and distributes natural microbial products
Products designed to increase yields of agricultural crops, improve root structure and improve appearance of turf
Our inoculants minimize the use of petrochemical and mined fertilizers
Through scientifically developed technologies backed by years of research, TerraMax creates and produces innovative natural products that enhance productivity and benefit producers, consumers and the environment.
Relying chiefly on the bacteria Azospirillum, TerraMax’s family of products is applied either as a powder or a liquid to seeds, crops, lawns and turf to naturally promote plant growth by capturing nitrogen.
Why Azospirillum? Azospirillum is a naturally occurring, plant growth-promoting microbe (bacterium) that works as a nitrogen fixer — harvesting nitrogen from the air and soil and delivering it to root systems. However, it wasn’t until TerraMax developed an industry-first formulation to keep the bacteria viable and stable that the growing community really learned what this bacteria could do.
Azospirillum is scientifically proven to improve root structure year after year — creating plants that can stand up to changing weather conditions and other challenges growers’ face. Whether it’s greener, hardier turf or increased crop yields, Azospirillum is proven to work.
Turf Fuel is a line of unique products designed to enhance plant strength and prepare intensely managed turf for extreme growing conditions. Just as an endurance athlete needs the right fuel to compete, your turf needs the right fuel to endure the rigors of summer stress. Energy conservation is the key to survival so we’ve designed our products to aid plant energy and protein production. Every ingredient in a Turf Fuel product is there for a reason and added at an agronomically beneficial value. That means we don’t just put a small quantity in so we can claim it on the label. Our philosophy is simple, give plants the nutrients and stress fighting components they need, in the best raw material forms possible, and create really strong plants. We know a lot is riding on your turf’s quality and condition. Our goal is to give turf managers the nutritional tools they need to make their turf the best it can possibly be. We are passionate about providing the most effective products for the challenges facing today’s turf managers.
