New Product called Holganix. Can someone confirm.

New video of Steve Lange, talking about the makeup of Holganix. It's about 30 minutes long and very interesting!

Was not very impressed with the results of Holganix.

I may give them a try again this year but the cost is not very appealing.

Can you give us a little more information as to why you were not impressed? Any thing specific or in general?

Maybe your experience can help others, maybe we can help you?

It never got greened up after 3 applications. I applied 7 oz in each application and I used on my lawn and two others (different areas but not clients) so I could actually mark off areas. I do this whenever I am using a new product to see performance and also see once I do find something that is good if I need to use as much as they say.

Color was way off compared to some other products I have used. I have used One App which is a slow release fertilizer and does a nice job but I am trying to get away from the fertilizer. This is the third year I have been trying to find something that actually does what it says and can get my lawns green enough. I understand the process is slow when talking to people but after three applications there should have been something going on.

Also not really thrilled about having to refrigerating the product either. I really do not care about getting the system I just do not want to be locked into a system unless I see it work. I do not want to move around my workshop for this refrigeration system. Price was not that bad compared to fertilizer considering I was upselling on the fact of Organic application.

How are you using the Holganix?

The key thing to remember is that once the raw food is gone,,, there is no more nutrient cycling to happen,,, unless there is an alternative source of N... 7oz of N per k, will easily make a difference on any turf that I've seen...

Something to think about,,, maybe even ponder...

So are you saying I should have been adding Nitrogen with the Holganix?

I am not sure what you are trying to say.

I was adding 7 oz of Holganix per 1000 sq/ft not Nitrogen. I thought they said I did not need Nitrogen with their product? I am truly confused now

Yes, you can use it without fertilizer, but it is recommended to use a low rate of N when you first switch over to the product. It helps with the transition from synthetic to organic.

We are applying 7 oz holganix with .25 lbs N (from soluble urea) I will probably switch that to 1/8 lb N for the next round. And continue with that thru the summer and test a few without any N to see if there is an appreciable difference.

How does Holganix FEED the grass??? What is its Method Of Operation???

When we understand how a carbuerater works, we can figure out reasons why it may not be working, when it quits... Same with anything else... How does Holganix work???

daleslandscaping-- we are also using 70z Holganix with .25oz N and seeing good results. As I understand it, Holganix works on it's own but can take longer to get those instant results without a little N. Sometimes we spot treat as well. maybe worth trying again with .25 N?
