1. Cottonseed Meal: Pure cottonseed meal is a by-product of cotton manufacturing. It contains 7% nitrogen, 3% phosphorus, and 2% potash. It releases its nutrients slowly which minimizes runoff. Its organic content works to aerate dense soils and helps retain moisture in sandy soil. It is also slightly acidic.
2. Alfalfa Meal: With a typical analysis of 2% nitrogen, 1% phosphorus, and 2% potash alfalfa meal is one of the most widely used organic fertilizers. It is unique in supplying the natural growth supplement triacontanol, a fatty alcohol contained in the waxy coating of the plant cuticle.
3. Sunflower Meal: One of the lesser studied organic fertilizers with an average NPK analysis of 3.6-1.1-1.6 sunflower meal has been proven to increase plant growth and yield by North Dakota State University.
4. Soybean Meal: Long a staple of organic garden fertilizers, soybean meal has an analysis of 7% nitrogen, 2% phosphorus, and 1% potash. Like all the other meal components of this fertilizer it adds beneficial organic matter to the soil profile.
5. Dried Cane Molasses: The sugar and carbon content of dried cane molasses supply energy to beneficial soil microorganisms that make other nutrients in the fertilizer and in the soil available to growing plants.
6. Rice Bran: Only recently used with great success as a fertilizer in the African state of Burundi, rice bran is a relative new comer to the organic fertilizer stable. In addition to a modest NPK analysis is supplies organic matter to improve soil structure.
7. Corn Gluten Meal: Corn gluten meal's 9-0-0 analysis makes it a great source of nitrogen. While in higher concentrations it can be used as a pre-emergent herbicide we use only enough to fortify our nitrogen content.
8. Diatomaceous Earth: Normally used as a natural insecticide we add diatomaceous earth to our formula so that the fertilizer pellets will stay dry and during storage and spread easily.
9. Soybean Oil: The organic ingredients in our fertilizer pellets are bound together with soybean oil.
10. Langbeinite: A naturally mined mineral, langbeinite is a great source of potassium, magnesium, and sulfur. It is a
great source of potassium, magnesium, and sulfur. It is water soluble but releases its nutrients slowly because of its density.
11. Magnesium Mica: Also known as Phlogophite is a natural member of the mica family. It contains 8% magnesium, 4% iron and 1% potassium.
12. Sulfur: Because sulfur is a natural mineral it is acceptable in organic gardening programs. Sulfur is acidic and helps lower soil ph.
13. Iron Sulfate: Iron sulfate is also known as copperas. It is formed from the natural weathering of iron pyrites. It adds a slow release iron component to soils to make plants green.
14. Iron Amino Acid Complex: Common as a source of iron used in animal feeds we have added this source of organic iron for its fast releasing qualities.
15. Zinc Amino Acid Complex: This is another product from the animal feed industry. Plants fail to develop properly when they are deficient in zinc. This formula adds zinc in small trace amounts.
16. Manganese Amino Acid Complex: Manganese deficiency is often mistaken for iron deficiency. We add this feed grade form of readily available manganese to combat manganese deficiency.
