Gardening Texoma: Soil & Fertilizers

I. Fertilizers / Soils Amendments:

Organic Fertilizers

a) Cow manure bases

b) Alfalfa bases w/ trace minerals

c) Humate based.

Reason why organic is better

1) Can be applied any time of year

2) Over time less will be needed due to duplicity of microbial development.

3) Allows for weather stimuli (natural adaptive growth patterns)

4) Better for disease control.

5) Easy to spread

6) It’s the right thing to do. (because I said so!)

Amendments

a) Decomposed Granite

b) Kelp (Seaweed)

c) Cornmeal

d) Dry Molasses

f) Expanded Shale

h) Compost
