Our Milorganite® organic lawn care program consists of five applications of Milorganite organic based fertilizer.
Slow-Release for Balanced Growth
Milorganite’s slow-release formula provides nitrogen and other nutrients for even growth (without excessive grass clippings) and better root development. Because grass is able to use these nutrients over a longer period of time, less fertilizer is wasted by seeping into groundwater or running off into streams.
Adds Organic Matter to Feed the Soil
Milorganite contains 85% organic matter, which promotes beneficial microbial activity and improves the soil’s ability to grow and nurture grass and plants. Milorganite is ideal for sandy soils because it does not leach.
Iron that Greens without Staining
Milorganite’s iron is exceptional at delivering a long-lasting green. Unlike iron salts in some synthetic fertilizers, Milorganite’s organically complex iron won’t stain concrete.
Environmentally Friendly and Sustainable
Milorganite is one of the nation’s oldest recyclers, transforming a byproduct into a highly effective fertilizer. No mined resources are used in production; Milorganite continues to explore alternative energy sources such as solar, digester methane, and landfill gas to run its operations. Milorganite is certified by the USDA as a bio-based product since it is derived from renewable materials.
Organic Lawn Essential Nutrients
It takes more than nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to optimize plant vigor. Fortunately, Milorganite contains all 13 essential plant nutrients, including secondary nutrients like calcium and micronutrients like iron and zinc.
