Milorganite?s slow-release formula provides nitrogen and other nutrients for up to 10 weeks after application. This provides even growth and better root development over a longer period of time, instead of a sudden growth spurt and excessive grass clippings. Remember: the best defense against weeds is a healthy lawn!
Slow release is also good for the environment; Milorganite?s nutrients release at a rate that plants can use making it less likely to leach into groundwater.
Slow release is good for gardens, too. The slow release nitrogen feeds plants evenly and gradually. It doesn?t interfere with flowering or fruit development. Milorganite also encourages root development, which results in abundant yields.
