I have used it only when I have bad fungus problems. (ring spot primarily but other not so common soil and root stuff as well) If your soil is bad..it can work wonders for disease suppression. One application at about 12lbs/1000 cured a ring spot lawn for 12 years now. There is a top rated (nationally) golf course in new jersey that fed the entire place with it. The results were astounding. I wouldnt consider using it for maintenance unless the soil is really sandy and sterile.

That's sort of the reason I wanted to use it, because it will help build up the soils microbial activity and *hopefully* help with fungus and disease problems. Perhaps I won't see the real results of some of the applications I made last year until this summer...

It sounds to me like its slow release nature would be good for feeding Tall Fescue lawns in the hot humid southern states from mid May-August, since a lot of nitrogen on them would cause disease problems. I've thought they needed at least a little nitrogen during the summer months. Maybe an app of this would be just the right thing for them.

Pick another organic fert, milorganite has a lot of heavy metals, they cant get lead or any mercury out of the sewage sludge. Oh BTW it is what is left over from the processing of sewage, think of all that as you wipe the dust and sweat from your face.
