doster's L & L

harmony products are good, so are espoma

I get a company to blend for me or use one of their custum blends

16-4-8, 50% organic
6-12-12 50% organic

I like to apply 3lbs of n; .25 lbs of p2o5; and 2.25lbs of k, to maintain turf, will apply more nutrients to correct soil defiecies. this maintatence rate is assuming clipping are being returned

Using corn meal, alfafa meal, ect, that aren't labeled for turf, I DON'T BELIEVE the label states the % n,p, k, and etc!!!!!!

Guess I want to know how much fert I'm applying!!!!!!! Natural organic or sythetic!!!!!!!

I try to completely use sulfate of potash, not pot. chloride high in salt index range

Again, all you wanted to know, how do I blend the fert!

I have blended some my self for a special job, lot of work, want more info, email me

If it helps any, here's a link to a site that lists the NPK of various organic materials.

In my area, any organic fertilizers you get premixed costs 6x more than the raw ingredients bought retail at a feed store.
