    I was at a trade show and I spoke to a person about a new line of Organic fertilizers coming on the market called Turf-shure (sp?). Has anyone heard about it? They claim to get have a 20-4-8 all natural, no synthetics. I am a little skeptical about that but they said they can do it. I am still waiting for more info from the guy. Let me know if anyone has heard anything.

    I would be skeptical too as that N sounds vey high to be "all natural" compared to other organic ferts on the market. Let me know what you find out.

    To put it bluntly, there are no natural organics on the market today with an N analysis over 14%. And that is soybean protein isolate which is very difficult to obtain. I can tell you that a 15% N granular/soluble will hit the market by the end of 06 or beginning of 07.

    A 20% "natural organic" as advertised is a bridge with some form of "organic" nitrate. Not a real organic and no microbial enhancement with nitrates.
