Howard has deep roots in agriculture. We started our business in 1932, providing fertilizers to Florida citrus growers. From there, we branched out to serve vegetable growers, and we continued to develop new products to meet the industry's latest needs and demands. In 2002, we began offering chemicals to complement our fertilizer products, and in 2012 we opened a state-of-the-art production facility in Lake Placid, Florida.

Today, we are a leading provider of agricultural products, with distribution centers located to deliver product with the industry's fastest turnaround time. Our sales force are also experts in all areas of agricultural production, and are ready to assist you in every way possible. In this business, experience makes the difference — and that's the difference Howard can make to your operations.

Polyworx™ is the newest technology in slow release polymer coated fertilizer. Polyworx is a component product designed to allow you to precisely target the release of nutrients to the exact time when your crops, trees and plants require it.
