TAGRO Awards

TAGRO Products Win Awards     

TAGRO has been stacking up awards for more than two decades. We hold ourselves to the highest standards, and top regulatory agencies and professional organizations are taking notice. On the national level, TAGRO has been recognized as the best biosolids program in the country as well as for innovation in product development and research and technology.

On the local level, fruits, vegetables and flowers that we’ve grown in our TAGRO demonstration garden have reaped more than 120 ribbons, most of them blue, from the Western Washington Fair in Puyallup since we began entering in 1992. Take a look at our results, then let us know about your own success stories at TAGRO.
