Organic Fertilizer

Definition:

Animal or plant products such as manures, dried blood, bone meal, seaweed, alfalfa meal, compost or other plant or animal byproducts that are used for fertilizer for garden, farm or lawn care. Organic fertilizers are slow release fertilizers, meaning they are decomposed by soil micro-organisms to release nutrients gradually. They are an alternative to synthetic and chemical fertilizers used in conventional lawn care.
