Our organic fertilizers include composted animal manure, compost, sewage sludge, food processing wastes, and other natural composites. They improve soil health and release nutrients to soils.
Organic fertilizers are substances made from naturally occurring materials, such as plant and animal waste, that are used to add nutrients to the soil and improve plant growth. Unlike synthetic fertilizers, which provide a quick release of specific nutrients, organic fertilizers release nutrients slowly over time as they break down in the soil.
Some examples of organic fertilizers include compost, manure, bone meal, blood meal, and cottonseed meal. These fertilizers not only provide essential nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, but they also improve soil structure, increase water retention, and support the growth of beneficial microorganisms in the soil.
Organic fertilizers are often preferred by those who prefer to use environmentally friendly and sustainable gardening practices. However, it is important to note that some organic fertilizers, such as animal waste, can be carriers of plant diseases, and it is important to follow recommended guidelines for their use.
Organic fertilizers are typically applied by incorporating them into the soil before planting, or by spreading them on the soil surface and gently incorporating them into the top layer of soil. The frequency of application and amount used will depend on the type of fertilizer and the needs of the plants being grown.
