Testimonials

"I've had to call them on Sundays, on holidays and even at night, and they always get the job done. I thoroughly enjoy doing business with Fertizona."

- Max Koepnick, ME Productions

"We're always dealing with factors we can't control, and we trust (Fertizona) to help us identify problems. This business is hard work, but it’s been a great ride."

- Cindi Pearson, Santa Rosa Produce

"Fertizona does what it takes to help us in any way they can. They often get us the products we need within just a few hours of when we order them. Their service is excellent."

- Steve Coester, Ak-Chin Farms

"I've never had to go outside of Fertizona for what I need. One of the best things about Ben (Hoyler) and Fertizona is that they treat my crops like they have an ownership stake in them."

Jon Post, Post Farms & Marana Pumpkin Patch

"I really like Fertizona's way of doing business. They're honest and straight in their dealings with us, especially about trying new things. Some other companies will come in and try to sell you a magic potion or a silver bullet, but there aren't any. Fertizona has always been very supportive."

Robert Van Hofwegen, Jr, Sunset Farms

"Growing the best potatoes is very expensive, and we insist on using only top-quality fertilizers and other products. Fertizona is able to deliver exactly the products we need, when we need them, and their service is excellent."

Florencio Rivera Aviles, Agropecuaria Malu

"I've never really worked with anybody else but Fertizona ever since I got here (Harquahala Valley, AZ). They have great people, great service and competitive prices. I trust Fertizona for just about everything."

Steve Melton, M&M Farms

"Fertizona constantly goes above and beyond for our operation. We do a lot of business with them and they are always there for us with exceptional products and a high level of service. Fertizona even offers various financing programs for customers if needed."

J.L. Echeverria, O&E Farms

"Fertizona gives us everything we need when we need it. We've worked with them for many years and we are extremely happy with their products and with the high level of service that they provide to us."

Cheryl Soto, Safford Valley Cotton Growers Co-op

"I use Fertizona for my seed, fertilizer and other things and I don't really need to do business with anybody else. My field people count on Fertizona a lot, too. If I had to point to one thing that makes Fertizona better, it's their excellent service. The Comptons are a stand-up family and I really care about them."

Mike Brooks, MK Farms

"We rely on Kevin's (Walsh) expertise. With his knowledge and flexibility, he's really good about finding economical ways to keep our grass strong and healthy. Fertizona definitely gives us a bigger bang for our buck."

Brandon Putman, City of Peoria

"Because of all the unique stuff we grow here, I often have to call, ask for for special fertilizers or chemicals and Compton Ag has always come through for me. I also really appreciate their involvement in our community. Compton Ag provides a lot of local support, especially for kids."

Joe Van Dyke, Jr., Joe Van Dyke Farms

"The staff at Fertizona has deep knowledge of the products and labeling, which helps us avoid liability issues from mismanagement of chemicals. Plus, we've had a very high level of service from Fertizona. We know we can always count on Fertizona."

Harold Payne, Fort McDowell Tribal Farm

"Fertizona is a one-stop shop; they take the worry out of insect, weed and disease control. Getting all my fertilizers and pesticides from Fertizona helps me manage costs and allows me to be as efficient as possible."

David Wuertz, Sundance Farms

"Fertizona has helped our business be more profitable. I enjoy doing business with them - they have great customer service, their prices are good and they have no problem locating products for me. I would recommend Fertizona to any grower."

John Bay, Desert Trees Nursery
