Athletic Fields

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.

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

  N per 1,000 sq ft Milorganite 6-2-0 per 1,000 sq ft

Summer ½-1 lb 8½-12 lbs
Fall 1 lb 17 lbs
Dormant 1 1/2 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

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.
