Types of Organics

Constructed
Feed grade quality meals inclusive of meals from blood, bone, feather, fish, meat and grain by-products.

How It Is Made
Meals are homogenized and screened for granular size and uniformity.

Product Characteristics
Meals are high in vitamins, minerals, chelated secondary elements, enzymes, sulfur amino acids, simple sugars, carbohydrates, starches, proteins and fats. These ingredients are unique to this class of organic fertilizers.

These meals supply the food energy of feed and stimulates the natural soil microbes which aid in the breakdown of the product.

Neutral pH and very low salt index that will not burn or track when applied at high temperatures.

High in organic matter.

High in WIN which provides excellent color and density without excessive growth.

Meals promote healthy plant growth which can reduce overall turf disease pressures.  When used with fungicide effectiveness is enhanced.

Low odor.


Nature Safe Products

Nature Safe 5-6-6, 8-3-5, 8-5-5, 9-0-9, 10-0-8, 10-2-8 and 13-0-0 are all Constructed Fertilizers.


Fortified

How It Is Formulated
An organic fertilizer combined with a synthetic or chemical fertilizer.

How It Is Made
Products are either homogenized or blended to achieve a particular analysis.

Product Characteristics
Offers a higher analysis than an all natural organic product alone.

Derives high amounts of WIN from organic product and high amounts of water soluble nitrogen from synthetics.

Key to success of product is the ratio by which they are combined.

Always read the label to know the ratio between the amount of organic and synthetic fertilizer content that is used to formulate the product.


Nature Safe Products

Nature Safe 12-2-6, 15-0-8, 21-3-7 and 27-2-2 are all Fortified Fertilizers.


Composted

How It Is Formulated
Animal manures and their bedding materials.

How It Is Made
Composting uses the natural aerobic and anaerobic microbes as well as the free ammonia found in manure to breakdown the complex cellulose fiber. The finished product is then sterilized by heat to destroy any harmful pathogens.

Product Characteristics
Low anaylsis, high WIN product containing non-protein nitrogen.

Nitrogen is further released by microbes found in the soil.

Fully composed product has a moist, earthy ordor. Poorly composted product will retain ammonia-like odor.

Adds organic content to soils and supply a slow-release nitrogen feed to the turf.


Activated Sewage Sludge

How It Is Formulated
Human and industrial waste by-products.

How It Is Made
Uses a series of screening and centrifugal processes to remove debris, oil, grease, and grit. Waste water settles to remove additional organic matter. Remaining waste water is then oxygenated to increase the aerobic breakdown of the remaining biomass. This microbe degraded organic matter settles and thickens and excess water removed. Final biomass produces a thick fiberous cake which is then kiln dried at very high temperatures to kill all remaining microorganisms or pathogens.

Product Characteristics
High in denatured proteins which are high WIN sources.

Denatured proteins offer some initial color response from the iron found in this product, but mainly add organic biomass to the soil.

May contain minor elements such as zinc, copper and iron.

Very low salt index that will not burn or track when applied at high temperatures.

High in organic matter.

Low odor.
