FERTILIZER
RECOMMENDATIONS

    Nature's Own provides the most usable fertilizer recommendations for the Green Industry. Our exclusive computer software and fertility expertise in turf, habitat and ornamentals gives you lime, fertilizer and micronutrient recommendations that more accurately fit your needs.
    Nature's Own exclusive turf, habitat and ornamental fertility recommendations let you select one of the following four fertility management options:

HIGH LEVEL FERTILITY & MAINTENANCE
This recommendation option is used to improve soil fertility to a high optimum level for the PLANT TYPE and AREA TYPE (use) specified. High level fertilizer recommendations will rapidly build soil nutrient levels to the high optimum range. Select this option for the habitat, intensively maintained turf, sod production, nursery production and other situations where vigorous growth is desired.

MEDIUM LEVEL FERTILITY & MAINTENANCE
This recommendation is used to maintain soil fertility where optimum levels exist or to build to the medium range for the PLANT TYPE and AREA TYPE (use) specified. Select this option for routinely maintained residential, commercial and institutional grounds, and other situations where normal growth of turf, habitat or ornamentals is desired.

LOW LEVEL FERTILITY/MAINTENANCE
This recommendation is used to maintain low fertility levels or build fertility to low levels when deficiencies are found. Select this option when maintaining low maintenance turf; ex. cemeteries, parks school grounds. It should also be used for maintaining current health of mature trees and shrubs.

NEWLY ESTABLISHED FERTILITY/MAINTENANCE
This recommendation option is used to improve soil fertility to a high optimum level for establishment of the PLANT TYPE and AREA TYPE (use) specified. Select this option when sampling is done prior to establishment (planting) or during the first three to six months following establishment (planting).
