Yard & Garden:
For lawns made up of cool season grasses such as Kentucky Blue Grass, Perennial Rye Grass, Tall Fescue and Fine Fescue, and Bent Grass apply 20 pounds per 1000 sq ft in the spring after the flush of rapid growth slows. Apply an additional 20 pounds in the mid to late fall. For lawns made up of warm season grasses such as Bahia, Bermuda, Blue Grama, Buffalo, Centipede, St. Augustine, and Zoysia should be fertilized 20 pounds per 1000 sq ft in early spring. Apply an additional 20 pounds mid summer. If you are looking for a simple but very effective way to improve your turf naturally, this is the best fertilizer for lawn care.
For vegetables and fruits see the McGeary Organics Fertilizer Application Guide. Recommendations range from 4 to 10 lb per 100 ft. depending on the crop grown.
Flowering Annuals: apply 4 lb per 100 ft. prior to planting and 4 lb per 100 ft. again in mid summer.
Flowering Perennials: apply 4 lb per 100 ft. prior to shoot growth in the spring, and again in late fall for late blooming plants.
Flowering Perennials and Shrubs: apply 1lb per 100 ft. in the spring and 2.5 lb per 100 ft. on the fall.
Ornamental Trees and Shrubs: should be fertilized once in the early spring prior to new shoot growth. Apply 5 pounds to evergreen trees, and 8 pounds to deciduous trees. For small trees (under 15 feet) and shrubs use 1 to 3 pounds.
Corn use 100 lb of 5-3-4 per 25 bushels of expected yield. This should be adjusted based on manure applications and existing soil nutrients as determined by soil testing. Ideally this should be incorporated just prior to planting.
