I have been using Milorganite fertilizer for more than 20 years. It is one of my favorite fertilizers. What I like about Milorganite is I don’t have to worry about how heavily I’m applying the fertilizer because it won’t burn, and it is slow release so it releases nutrients over a 10 week period. I use it on everything in my yard; trees, shrubs, perennials, and the lawn.
Milorganite Analysis: 6-2-0
- 6% Nitrogen
- 2% Phosphorus
- 1.2% Calcium
- 4% Iron
Milorganite is worry-free because it contains virtually no salts, so it will not burn plants – even in the hottest temperatures and driest conditions. You don’t have to water it in, it will stay in the soil ready to work when moisture comes later.
Milorganite’s slow-release formula provides nitrogen and other nutrients over an 8-10 week period for even growth and better root development.
Milorganite contains 85% organic matter, which promotes beneficial microbial activity and improves the soil’s ability to grow and nurture grass and plants. Because it doesn’t leach, it is ideal for sandy soils.
Milorganite’s iron is exceptional at delivering a long-lasting green. Unlike iron salts in some synthetic fertilizers, Milorganite’s organically complex iron won’t stain concrete.
It takes more than nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to optimize plant vigor. Fortunately, Milorganite contains all 13 essential plant nutrients, including secondary nutrients like calcium and micronutrients like iron and zinc.
