Milorganite

Greens and Tees


Quick Tips:

1. Milorganite comes in two sizes: Classic (SGN 160) and Greens Grade (SGN 90)
2. Milorganite contains slow release nitrogen and 4% non staining iron.
3. Mix Milorganite and grass seed to fill tee box divots.

Players expect the greens to play smooth; nothing should interfere with this surface.  That’s why we developed Milorganite Greens Grade, SGN 90.  These small particles fall into the turf canopy so the fertilizer doesn’t interfere with the putting surface, or end up in the baskets of greens mowers.  Spreading the uniform, dust-free granules of Milorganite Greens Grade is one of the best ways to make sure your players return time after time.

Golf course tees take some of the roughest abuse on the golf course.  Their care and maintenance is continually under fire due to the desire by golfers for that perfect tee shot.  By including Milorganite in your fertility program for tees, you alleviate some of this stress.

All rates are monthly except dormant which is annual.
