50 lb Professional Milorganite fertilizer bag

Milorganite Professional 50 lb. Spreader Settings for Homeowners

The same nutrients you get from the original Milorganite (32 lb. bag) is also available in a 50 lb. Professional bag in limited markets. The Milorganite Professional 50 lb. bag is our Greens Grade product which is smaller granules. For the proper application, you will need to adjust your spreader settings (see below). 

Homeowner 50 lb. Professional Application Rates

Put 1/4 of the 50 lb. professional bag or 12.5 lbs. of Milorganite in your spreader, which should cover 1,000 sq ft. The 50 lb. professional bag should fertilize about 4,000 sq ft for a homeowner.

If your spreader model is not listed below, please go to how to calibrate a spreader for instructions (six easy steps) to ensure Milorganite is applied at the proper rate. As always, you have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that Milorganite won't burn. Fertilize with Milorganite four (4) times per year, for more information on rates and schedule

2 passes = Divide your application in half and go over the same area twice, for a more uniform application.

Tip: When using a broadcast (rotary) spreader divide the spreader setting in half and apply in two directions (north to south and then east to west) to get more even coverage. Spreader settings are to be used as a guide and will vary according to the rate you walk and the mechanical condition of the spreader.
