Do use organics now? Or are thinking of adding them?

Soybean meal and feather meal are both high in protein to feed soil microbes.
I've had good response with soybean meal which is readily available to me from the local grain elevator. I'm not sure about the wheat husks (bran). It may be just an organic bulk for an aid in spreading. Maybe some other guys from the Organics Forum will find this thread and comment.

Sorry. I referred to wheat husks (as you did) but then I read the label.
It says wheat middlings. That's different. Middlings are floor sweepings from milling facilities. They may contain any parts of the wheat seed. Protein value of about 16%. Still is probably for bulking.
Soybean meal 44-50% protein. Feathermeal 80% protein.

some info i recieved from supplier if any 1's interested
my question/ followed by their answer in bold

what value does the wheat middlings component provide in
your fert? is it just a filler? Wheat midds act as a binder for the pellet and provide nutrients in the formulation, as such they are not considered an “inert” ingredient.


what is the OM % of the blends you offer? With the exception of the sulfate of potash, all other ingredients provide OM in our blends, resulting in approximately 90% OM.



are the blends all considered 100% SRN? Assuming by SRN you mean Slow Release Nitrogen, are blends would be considered 100% SRN. Unlike some fertilizers that label themselves “organic” and incorporate urea that is either sulfur or polymer coated to make them slow release, the nitrogen component of our product is not water soluble, so the effects of irrigation or rain do not affect the release rate of our fertilizer.
