Back to Nature, Inc. NATURE’S BLEND WITH ALFALFA & HUMATE is a balanced blend of composted cotton burrs, composted cattle manure, alfalfa, and humate. It is screened to a maximum particle size of ¼” and is available in 1 cu. ft. bags.
Cotton burrs and cattle manure, besides their value as organic fertilizers, provide an important food source for beneficial soil organisms. These organisms help to make nutrients available to plants, aerate the soil, and help to keep harmful organisms and pathogens in check. Composted cotton burrs and composted cattle manure help to neutralize soil pH. Unlike wood and wood by-products, cotton burr and cattle manure composts do not tie up valuable nutrients in the soil. Alfalfa is high in nitrogen and contains
Triacantanol, a natural growth enhancer. It may help in the suppression and control of certain fungal diseases. Humate is an important source of humic acid and micro-nutrients. It activates beneficial soil organisms.
Back to Nature, Inc. NATURE’S BLEND WITH ALFALFA & HUMATE may also help to prevent and correct certain fungal diseases and thatch in turf. It promotes early germination and deep rooting in most turf types and provides significant protection from temperature and moisture extremes.
NATURE’S BLEND WITH ALFALFA & HUMATE may be applied as an underlay prior to seeding or laying sod, as a top dressing on existing turf, or as a soil amendment in your garden and landscaping projects.
