Feather Meal can be used to improve soil structure, increase green leaf growth and activate compost decomposition.
Containing up to 12% nitrogen, it is a source of slow-release (6-9 months or longer in soils with low biological activity), organic, high-nitrogen fertilizer for organic gardens.
Feather Meal is not water soluble and does not make a good liquid fertilizer.
When adding it to a garden as a nitrogen source, it must be blended into the soil to start the decomposition to make the nitrogenous compounds available to the plants. As an organic garden fertilizer, it is not synthetic or petroleum-based.
Apply at 200-400 lb/acre or for gardens use 25-50 lb/1000 sq ft.
Granulated Feather Meal also available upon request.
