Organic Fertilizers

I don't buy into the "Salt" issue with synthetic fertilizers and I see that 'Organic' fertilizer is more expensive, less dependable, so does anyone thinking about using organics?
If there is good results for sunthetic fertilizers and no salt build up;

Would you switch from normal fertilizer to the organic fertilizer???

I have great results using organic products in applications.But I am using a bridge product.The product I use most is a 19-3-6 with 50% natural based fertilizer.The natural based product is a bio-solid.We only need to do 5 applications a year using this product.This past year we had no disease issues using this bridge product.

I like using biosolids with the Iron added, like Milorganite especially as Summer approaches...
This is in addition to the typical 23-0-0 synthetics used two , maybe 3 times per year, for the cool weather growth...
Some lawns really pop with compost, others not so much...

Those customers that demand the organic products:

Do they know what products they believe are organic???
Do their lawns look like synthetically cared for lawns???
Are their lawns more expensive to maintain than synthetic???

Make sure you are getting a good share of that extra money for yourself... don't want it all going to the greenies...
