An all-natural homemade blend of about 80 different vitamins and trace elements dubbed Agromarin has produced astonishing results for planter Thorbjørn Kristensen. He can still eat the carrots grown with it – that he harvested in September 2002.

According to newspaper Aftenposten, Kristensen’s invention has been approved by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority and Debio, the national organic board. Agromarin is currently produced by Norsk Naturgjødsel (Norwegian Natural Fertiliser) but is still undergoing the patenting process.

Kristensen has been testing his mix since 1996 on a variety of food plants, with remarkable results. The 17-month old carrots resisted exposure to rot and fungus and still retain their smell and flavour, though they have dried out slightly.

The Agromarin carrots also have higher carbohydrate, beta-carotene, calcium and vitamin E levels than ‘normal’ carrots.

Kristensen admitted that he was not a professional researcher and was glad that his results were now being documented by a plant research station in Kvithamar.
