Applying Nature’s Creation® Dried Molasses is the best way to help build beneficial soil microorganism populations. They thrive and are strengthened by its high sugar and carbon content. Nature’s Creation® Dried Molasses allows the microorganisms to care for lawn grasses so the lawn grasses can care for them.
To make Nature’s Creation® Dried Molasses, a base of soybean hulls is crushed by powerful rollers to an easily spreadable consistency. We use Blackstrap molasses from freshly harvested sugar cane crushed to extract all the natural juices. This sweet juice contains extracts and fibers from the canes and soil. The juice is boiled three times to reduce the water content and remove trapped soil. The molasses is warmed only enough to improve its viscosity and sprayed on the natural base. Then it is dried again before packaging. The result is a clean and easy to spread granular material with a sweet pleasant aroma.
