Introducing Biomend® Organic Fertilizers
Posted on July 25, 2019
Introducing Biomend, an exciting new line of organic fertilizer solutions for use on turf, ornamentals, and specialty crops.
Available in two formulations, 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 a small amount of 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 improvement in long-term 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
The 5-5-5 formulation is perfect for trees, ornamentals and specialty crops, providing an ideal 1:1:1 fertility ratio for extended feeding.
The 10-0-6 formulation was designed for turfgrass applications, combining both quick and slow release nitrogen. The high rate of 10 lbs./1000 ft2 delivers .5 lbs. N/1000 ft2. Turfgrass color response can be observed in approximately 7-10 days following application.
