Organic Fall Restore Program

Posted by Ben Pease, Agronomist on September 23, 2021

After a stressful 2021 growing season, lawns are ready to be safely restored using The Andersons line of organic, OMRI-Listed products. These products, Biomend® 5-5-5, Biomend 10-0-6, and Humic DG™ CharX™, deliver the organic nutrients and soil-boosting ingredients perfect for fall lawns.


Designed to aid in germination and get new seeds off to a strong start.

Biomend 5-5-5 at 10.0 lbs./1000 sq. ft.
Humic DG CharX™ at 4.0 lbs./1000 sq. ft.

Biomend 10-0-6 at 5.0 lbs./1000 sq. ft.

Designed to increase the efficiency of fall fertilizer applications.

Biomend 10-0-6 at 5.0 lbs./1000 sq. ft.
Humic DG CharX at 2.0 lbs./1000 sq. ft.

Biomend 10-0-6 at 5.0 lbs./1000 sq. ft.

Humic DG CharX harnesses the power of humic acid and biochar in a 50/50 blend, providing the benefits of the more quickly-available humic acid and the long-term soil building qualities of biochar.

  • The Andersons Dispersing Granule (DG) Technology provides hundreds of thousands of small particles of humic acid and biochar after exposure to water, allowing these microparticles to move through the turf canopy
  • Delivers stable carbon to soil, increasing nutrient uptake, improving soil moisture retention, and building better permanent soil structure
  • Contains karrikins, a family of bioactive compounds that stimulate root growth

Biomend 5-5-5 and 10-0-6 feature all natural and organic nutrient sources and contain no biosolids, manure or wastewater byproducts. Utilizing a plant-based soybean meal for a portion of the nitrogen source, these products do not emit an overwhelming odor like biosolid/poultry fertilizers.

Biomend 5-5-5 and 10-0-6 also contain humic acid. Humic acid is a natural soil conditioner, organic chelator, and microbial stimulator that provides the following benefits:

  • Supplies an oxidized, soluble carbon source, leading to long-term improvement in soil pH
  • Enhances efficiency of applied nutrients and increases availability of soil phosphorus
  • Retains soil moisture and enables better water penetration in the soil, resulting in reduced water requirement
  • Chelates soil micronutrients, increasing their availability
