morturf - where did I say that Milorganite is bad? You need to reread the post. What I DID say, is that milorganite is processed. Milorganite, for those that don't know, is processed human sewage. It has to be heated to kill all the bacteria, e-coli, etc. Then it is treated to remove heavy metals and other pollutants. If some one applies Milorganite thinking that they are adding beneficial bacteria they are wrong, as this product has been "sterilized". My source for my info. is 6 yrs in a university actually studying and testing these and other products.
