Kickin' Frass Vineland Research Trial Highlights

  • Soil amended with frass showed improved higher organic matter levels, lower pH, and increased electrical conductivity at levels optimal for plant growth
  • Soil based growing media amended with frass crumble demonstrated extremely high breakdown rates, suggesting rapid nutrient availability
  • In addition to the rapid mineralization of frass in soil, frass inclusion also resulted in the rapid breakdown of soilless substrates, further supporting its benefit to composting processes
  • In lettuce, frass fertilizers were equally as effective as commercial organic fertilizer and yielded signficantly higher than the control

What is cricket frass?

Kickin’ Frass from SureSource Agronomy, powered by cricket frass, is a unique and revolutionary biofertilizer designed to enhance plant performance, naturally.

In simple terms, cricket frass is made up of cricket droppings, shed exoskeletons and residual plant-based cricket feed, all byproducts of the commercial cricket raising process. Frass has long been known as an effective, natural fertilizer, with applications in greenhouse, fruit, vegetable and even field crops.

Research shows1 that in addition to delivering a wide range of nutrients and micronutrients essential to plant health and growth, frass supports beneficial microbes and biological activity in the root zone. This improves soil structure and promotes steady water and nutrient retention.

Certified organic operators should always seek approval from their certification body before applying any inputs.
