Introducing CastAway™ DG

Posted by Ben Pease, Agronomist, PhD on March 01, 2023

The newest addition to our line of specialty fertilizers, CastAway DG is a natural fertilizer with high protein content and nutrients derived from tea seed meal. 

CastAway DG also features Dispersing Granule (DG) Technology, which allows the granules to dissolve with minimal irrigation and move more quickly into the soil profile.


Fall weather is just around the corner and turf managers need to plan ahead for the unique needs of the season. Correct usage of CastAway DG is time-sensitive, with rain returning and temperatures beginning to fall.

CastAway DG can be used with all turfgrass species.

Apply to dry turfgrass at 3-6 lbs/1000 sq ft (130-218 lbs/acre) with a broadcast-style spreader. Reapply every 4-5 weeks (low rate) or 6-8 weeks (high rate).
