Organic Based Fertilizer

Organic-Based Fertilizer is an innovative blend of natural organic materials and controlled-release synthetic fertilizers. It represents a hybrid approach to lawn nutrition, combining the immediate effectiveness of synthetic fertilizers with the long-term benefits of organic matter. Here’s a closer look at the components and advantages of using organic-based fertilizers.

Composition of Organic-Based Fertilizer

 Organic Nutrient Sources

Organic-based fertilizers typically include natural ingredients such as composted poultry manure, bone meal, and blood meal. These materials provide a stable source of macro-nutrients, which are fundamental for lawn growth. Additionally, they may contain other reclaimed natural nutrient sources, offering a spectrum of minor elements and beneficial microbes that improve soil health.

Controlled-Release Synthetic Fertilizer

The synthetic component of these fertilizers is designed to release nutrients over a shorter period. This provides a quick response, catering to the immediate nutrient requirements of lawns. The controlled-release aspect ensures that the release of nutrients is steady and prolonged, preventing the sudden influx of nutrients that can sometimes lead to runoff or nutrient burn.

Advantages of Organic-Based Fertilizers

  1. Balanced Nutrition: Organic-based fertilizers offer the best of both worlds – quick nutrient availability from synthetic components and prolonged feeding from organic matter. This balanced approach supports immediate lawn needs while fostering long-term soil health.
  1. Soil Health Improvement: The organic elements in these fertilizers contribute to the organic matter content of the soil. This improves soil structure, increases water retention, and encourages the proliferation of beneficial soil microorganisms.
  1. Reduced Environmental Impact: By combining organic materials with controlled-release synthetic nutrients, these fertilizers minimize the risk of nutrient leaching and runoff, making them a more environmentally friendly option.
  1. Enhanced Lawn Growth and Yield: The dual nature of organic-based fertilizers promotes more robust and healthy lawn growth. The immediate availability of synthetic nutrients ensures early growth, while the sustained release of organic nutrients supports ongoing development.
  1. Versatility: These fertilizers are suitable for residential lawns and outdoor spaces. They can be particularly effective in areas where soil conditions require both immediate nutrient supplementation and long-term improvement.


 Considerations for Use

While organic-based fertilizers offer numerous benefits, their application should be carefully managed. It’s important to consider the specific needs of the plants being fertilized and the existing soil conditions. Overapplication can lead to nutrient imbalances and should be avoided.
