    Sounds like an organic? Milorgainite or Houactinite? Both great products if integrated into a comple nutrient program --- but not sufficent on its own.

    At what rate did you apply it?

    I agree with hamons, sounds like milorganite. due to the high carbon to nitrogen ratio 8:1 you are now seeing the release of the n. sounds to me like you did a dormant feed with it, and microbial activity was too slow to consume organic matter.

    many old time golf course supers use it for this very reason.it is a good product for specific applications ( high temps warm soil ) or as a dormant feed.

    Curious what were you expecting from this product?
