How often should you apply this product? Are there different products for different times of the season?

Asked by: JimmyTee
Milorganite can be applied any time during the growing season. However, for best results we recommend four annual applications on your lawn. Northern Grasses such as Kentucky bluegrass, Fescue, and Perennial Ryegrass should be fertilized four (4) times per year. For the last application, fertilize with Milorganite as late in the season as possible—just before the first deep freeze or snowfall. This fertilizer application, known as “dormant feeding,” encourages healthier, greener lawn in spring. When to Apply Application Rate Memorial Day, end of May 36 lbs per 2,500 sq ft July 4th, Canada Day 36 lbs per 2,500 sq ft Labor Day, early September 36 lbs per 2,500 sq ft Thanksgiving, mid November 36 lbs per 2,500 sq ft Southern Grasses, such as Bermuda, St. Augustine, Centipedegrass, Bahia, and Zoysia, should be fertilized four (4) times per year. Centipedegrass and Bahia grass prefer spring and summer feedings, and to help prevent winter kill, avoid fertilizing these varieties in the fall. Don’t fertilize southern grasses too late in fall. The grass is trying to go dormant and if you fertilizer you’re encouraging it to grow. This may cause your lawn to be less hardy as it enters cold weather and more susceptible to winter injury. The last time to fertilize in fall is one month before dormancy or the average first killing frost. When to Apply Application Rate Easter (after turf breaks dormancy) 36 lbs per 2,500 sq ft Memorial Day, end of May 36 lbs per 2,500 sq ft Labor Day, early September 36 lbs per 2,500 sq ft Early October (or when overseeding)* 36 lbs per 2,500 sq ft

We have a shallow well.....will this harm our drinking water?

Asked by: Wenrob01
We have included the manufacturer's response below: When applying near a well, we recommend a minimum of 20 feet between areas where fertilizer is applied and the well head. I am not sure of your particular states regulations, but Wisconsin DNR requires that the well casing be a minimum of 24 inches above soil level to prevent groundwater and any possible pollutants from entering the well. You need to check with your well regulatory agency in your state for specifics to your location. However, if your well casing extends above the ground level, the surrounding area slopes away from the well, and you do not have cracks in the soil leading to the well casing, a minimum of twenty feet between spreading fertilizer and the casing should be adequate.

Is it safe for my dog?

Asked by: Zipster
Milorganite is safe for children and pets It’s non-toxic It’s free of chemical nutrients and pesticides Some dogs, for example, are attracted to the odor of Milorganite. As a result, you might find them rolling around in freshly fertilized areas, or eating it off the lawn or directly from the open bag! Here are a few tips to help deter your dog from its urge to taste-test Milorganite. • Monitor your dog after applying Milorganite to see if they show any interest in the product. • You may be able to reduce your dog’s attraction to Milorganite by watering your lawn after application. • You can reduce the problem by keeping your dog off the lawn for 24 hours after applying Milorganite. • Remove temptation and store Milorganite out of reach of dogs.

When can I water and how much after application on lawn (Bermuda)

Asked by: Lynn2
Watering is not necessary immediately after application. Milorganite will stay on the soil until rain or irrigation activates soil microbes that break it down into nutrients. Watering in Milorganite will ensure that the fertilizer achieves soil contact earlier and speed up the fertilizing process.

I noticed that it has a small amount of iron in it. Is this enough iron to help prevent moss from coming back after I use this product? Is this product organic?

Asked by: BJStew
It will help to kill moss. To truly get rid off moss, as it is spread by spores, you will need to completely clean up moss from other areas of the garden like the roof, sidewalks and under shrubbery. This product is organic.

is this fertilizer safe for horse pasture?

Asked by: Duke770
Yes, it can be used on a horse pasture if you follow these recommended safe application practices. The nutrients in Milorganite will fertilizer the animal food crops being grown in your pasture. In fact, Milorganite’s nitrogen releases slowly in comparison to traditional nitrogen fertilizers, allowing plants to take up this nutrient as they need it. This lessens the possibility of pastures having plants containing excessively high nitrates. As with all fertilizers, we recommend several “safe practices.” First, apply when animals are not present. This is to prevent a broadcast spreader from throwing granules into animals’ eyes or spooking them by hitting their bodies. If you are rotating pastures, fertilize when you take your animals out. If you are not rotating pastures, fertilize when they are being watered or otherwise away from grazing areas. If you can, fertilizer just before a rain or irrigating as this will wash the granules into the soil. This practice will also speed up the breakdown of Milorganite into the nitrogen, phosphorus and iron components which feed plants.

Can this be used on a lawn I'm just starting to work on.I want to plant seed as well it will be fescue dirt is black clay. Can i apply this before applying seed down. I was gonna wet grass before applying so seed will stick to grass.

Asked by: willie n
Grass seed would be needed to grow more grass, but an application of Milorganite with the grass seed can help speed up the grow-in process. Use a spreader for your seed instead of wetting the grass. There is also no need to water in Milorganite after application.

I see that it's ok for Pets, does that mean it's OK for livestock (goats) which might eat the vegetation in the area? Of course I understand it would be better to have it rain on the application to water it in so they are not eating the raw material?

Asked by: RichinPA
The manufacturer could not provide any scenarios for livestock. They only have data on if a dog ingests the product.
