ORGANIC FERTILIZER PROGRAM OUTLINE
5 Step


Step 1: LAWN BOOSTER (8-1-1): Apply in Spring
Patented biologically enhanced fertilizer (US Patent No. 6,228,806)
Contains corn gluten pre-emergence, bone meal, sulfate of potash & beneficial soil bacteria.  Provides slow release N, P, K / Does not push excessive growth
Improves nutrient availability (solubizes P, K & fixes atmospheric N)
Improves soil structure, increases humus levels
Provides turf with increased resistance to environmental extremes (drought, heat, foot traffic)


Step 2: LAWN BOOSTER (8-1-1): Apply in late Spring
Patented biologically enhanced fertilizer (US Patent No. 6,228,806)
Contains corn gluten pre-emergence, bone meal, sulfate of potash & beneficial soil bacteria.  Provides slow release N, P, K / Does not push excessive growth
Improves nutrient availability (solubizes P, K & fixes atmospheric N)
Improves soil structure, increases humus levels
Provides turf with increased resistance to environmental extremes (drought, heat, foot traffic)


Step 3: KELP BOOSTER: Apply Summer
Bio-stimulant / Contains plant growth hormones, micronutrients, vitamins & amino acids.  Stimulates healthy turf growth, increases root development
Provides turf with essential micronutrients, amino acids & vitamins
Provides turf with increased resistance to environmental extremes (drought, heat, foot traffic).  Rich in calcium (essential for cell wall development & plant growth)


Step 4: MICROBIAL SOIL CONDITIONER: Apply Late Summer
Microbial soil inoculant / Contains beneficial soil bacteria, actinomyces, fungi, vitamins, amino acids Provides turf with increased resistance to environmental extremes (drought, heat, foot traffic)
Improves nutrient availability (solubilizes P, K, Ca, Mg and fixes atmospheric N)
Rich in calcium (essential for cell wall development & plant growth)
Improves soil structure, increases humus levels

 

 

Step 5: 8-2-4 PLUS : Apply Early Fall
A patented biologically enhanced fertilizer fortified with essential eneficial soil microorganisms. This unique formulation provides the end user with a slow release source of N, P, K in addition to reestablishing a healthy soil food-web. The beneficial microorganism contained in 8 - 2 - 4 PLUS will improve soil structure, promote nutrient cycling, enhance seed germination, provide plants with increased resistance to environmental extremes (drought, heat, cold, foot traffic, etc.) and help convert soil elements (including phosphorous) into plant available forms
