Milorganite

Athletic Fields


Quick Tips:

1. 4% iron for greening.
2. Non-burning.
3. Slow release nitrogen.

Milorganite has long been an integral part of sports field maintenance, included in the preparation for many Super Bowls.  Whether used as a bulking agent, drying agent for pre-germinated seed or as a slow release nutrient source, Milorganite helps promote dense turf with deep roots for a safe and true playing surface.

Cool Season Turf

Bentgrass, poa annua, kentucky bluegrass, fescue and perennial ryegrass

  N per 1,000 sq. ft. Milorganite 6-2-0 per 1,000 sq. ft.
Spring 1 lb. 17 lbs.
Summer ½-1 lb. 8½-12 lbs.
Fall 1 lb. 17 lbs.
Dormant 1½ lbs. 25 lbs.

Warm Season Turf

Bermuda, seashore paspalum and zoysiagrass

  N per 1,000 sq. ft. Milorganite 6-2-0 per 1,000 sq. ft.
Spring 1 - 2 lbs. 17 - 34 lbs.
Summer 1/2-1 lb. 8-17 lbs.
Fall 1 - 2 lbs. 17 - 34 lbs.
Fall over-seeding 1 lb. 17 lbs.

In regions where killing frosts can be expected, avoid nitrogen applications to warm-season grasses in the fall less than one month prior to the average date of the first killing frost. For best results, fertilize when over-seeding with cool-season grasses.

All rates are monthly except dormant which is annual.  Summer applications are monthly, all others are annual.
