Which organic fertilizer has the highest nitrogen level and is good for winter fertilizer? Soybean meal? Also when should I apply for the last app. Before winter?

RE: Winter fertilizer??

When to apply a fall plant food can be a bit tricky because you will want to feed those plants so they can store that food before they go dormant, but if there is an active Soil Food Web about 8 weeks prior to when soil temperatures will drop low enough to slow or stop that activity. In my area of the world that means late September or early October at the latest.
Soybean meal, Cottonseed meal, Corn meal all (or about 95 percent) come from seeds from Genetically Engineered crops which should not be acceptable to an organic grower because we do not know what affect these have on the environment or us.
