The Company


Florikan® is a Proud Family Owned U.S. Based Manufacturer |  Evolving Plant Nutrient through Advanced Fertilizer Technologies

Founded in 1981 by Ed and Betty Rosenthal, Florikan ESA has grown from a man selling goods from the trunk of his car to an industry leader in plant nutrition. Florikan’s entrepreneurial drive, continuous innovations, and pioneering work formed the basis for introduction of Nutricote® controlled release fertilizer to the U.S. market over 30 years ago. This drive helped form NASA partnerships, for research and development work, on the recently patented Gal-XeONE™ controlled release fertilizer, and ‘Veggie’ production programs on the International Space Station.

Florikan’s commitment to quality, and a solution driven technical sales process, has earned a loyal customer base of over 3000 end-user growers and industry professionals, who rely on Florikan’s crop recommendations and product performance. From production, fulfillment, to complete customer satisfaction, Florikan’s pledge is “We Make it Right”.  Florikan has been recognized with awards from industry, community, government, and environmental organizations for the tireless efforts to develop solutions that bridge the demands of economics, crop production, and stewardship.
