Alfalfa meal is an organic fertilizer that is easy to use, made from alfalfa, a green manure crop containing small amounts of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium.It is a rapid decomposer and can naturally generate a lot of heat in a short amount of time. This heat generating ability means that Alfalfa Meal is also a good accelerant for use with any compost pile.

Alfalfa contains the hormone, Triacontanol, a natural root stimulant. The primary boost comes from the millions of microbes in the fermented meal that activate the soil organisms that then convert nutrients into forms available to plants. It is suitable for all kinds of plants, shrubs, and trees.

Directions: Organic fertilizer may be applied any day, any time of day, and at any amount without fear of hurting the turf. Give it 3 weeks for the microbes to process the protein before the benefit is seen in the grass. A second application may be needed 3 weeks after the first, and then your lawn will be nice and green. Apply as a top dressing to lawns or plants at the rate of 10 to 20 pounds per 1,000 square feet.

50 lbs covers up to 6,000 square feet.

Always refer to actual product label for specific rates, instructions, and cautions.
