Help Understanding Fertilizer Ingredients
I have used Woodstream's "Ringer Lawn Restore" in the past, and have been pleased with the results. Agway sells a product named "Agway Nature's Way Organic Lawn Food," which is substantially cheaper. Can anyone here enlighten me as to how the different ingredients work in terms of feeding the biology in the soil? Is the Agway product truly organic?
Here is the information from Agway Nature's Way Organic Lawn Food:"
Nitrogen 8% (3.2 Water Soluble, 4.8% Water Insoluble)
Available Phosphate 2%
Soluble Potash 4%
Plant Nutrients Derived From: Composted Poltry Manure, Methylene Urea, Sulfate of Potash
For comparison, here is the information from Woodstream's "Ringer Lawn Restore:"
Total Nitrogen 10%
1.9% Nitrate Nitrogen
0.5% Other Water Soluble Nitrogen
7.6% Water Insoluble Nitrogen
Available Phosphate (P2O5) 2%
Soluble Potash (K2O) 6%
Derived from: hydrolyzed poultry feather meal, nitrate of soda, potassium sulfate, bone meal and soybean meal.
