    Quiet and I both disagree. All of the granular fert I put down is poultry manure based and customers have never asked for anything else when told what it is. Technically it's animal waste, but it's properly composted and will add organic matter to the soil. Remember, a lot of times with organics it's all about educating the customer. If you have problems using it, your customers will as well.

    MU doesn't increase microbial populations. It requires them to be activated.
    But it is an excellent product.

    true, but I've seen studies that show this requirement actually increases the need and can slighty stimulate growth (since the food is there). I've even seen excellent results with a mix of composted poultry and Nutralene, no less results than just with CPM at 1/3 the price.

    The smell from CPM only lasts a few days. until irrigation.

    My customers would rather know I'm using turkey poo, than chemicals (even though I explain that most chemicals are nothing to be afraid of; potassium sulfate, little amounts of urea; ammonium sulfate, etc.)

    Educate your customers and you will thrive!
