The Fertmark programme was established in 1996 to give New Zealand farmers confidence in the quality of fertilisers and the associated advertising. Members of the Fertmark scheme must observe the Fertmark Code of Practice.
Should a company wish to have a product added to the Fertmark register, it must formally apply to the Fertmark authority. The company has to provide a list of declared values for specified nutrients (and forms of nutrients) in the product. The company's own testing programme and the Fertmark audit programme are used to ensure product compliance with these values.
