Aug 3, 2022

Emerald Harvest Selects Hydrofarm as its New US Distributor for Professional Hydroponic Fertilizers News, Top News SANTA ROSA, Calif.—Aug 1, 2022—Award-winning fertilizer manufacturer Emerald Harvest has chosen industry veteran Hydrofarm to distribute its professional-grade hydroponic nutrients to retail stores within the United States. “I expect this will be a strong distribution partnership,” Emerald Harvest CEO Rob Higgins said. “We know Hydrofarm brings a lot of value to the industry, particularly through their wide net of distribution centers and experts in all facets of the market.” Petaluma, Calif.-based Hydrofarm ( hydrofarm.com ) has been a strong player in the nutrient industry for more than four decades. Its mission to “empower growers” lines up perfectly with Emerald Harvest’s promise to bring simple, easy success to hydroponic growers large and small. “This is a partnership that’s going to serve us, them—and, best of all, the community,” Higgins said. Emerald Harvest, founded in Santa Rosa, Calif., in 2015, is now widely known as the professional choice for hydroponic growers due to its best-in-class results in the grow room. Emerald Harvest base nutrients and supplements are sold in North America, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Europe, with its brand reaching number-one best-seller status in hundreds of stores in the USA. Recognized for its distinctive branding, swag and industry support, Emerald Harvest is the recipient of seven straight awards as the Best Nutrient Company from DOPE Magazine.
