Pros & Cons
The Milorganite Organic Nitrogen Fertilizer is derived from heat-dried microbes that have digested the organic material in wastewater. It is great for promoting healthy growth of lawns, trees, shrubs and flowers. The non burning formula doesn't have to be watered-in. It is fortified with 4% iron to help produce thick, green lawns without excessive growth. It doesn't contain any salts, so it is good for use in drought conditions. A 36 lb. bag covers about 2,500 sq. ft. to feed your lawn or garden for up to 10 weeks, so you don't have to constantly fertilize. Also this fertilizer stays in the root zone, avoiding groundwater or well contamination. Users like this fertilizer as it also works as repellent and deters rabbits and deer from eating plants.
Some users say that that Milorganite Organic Nitrogen Fertilizer has a slight odor to it.
Overall, the Milorganite Organic Nitrogen Fertilizer is highly rated and highly recommended by users for growing thick and lush green grass. It comes at a very good price for the quantity and quality.
