Johnís Recipe of All Natural Organic Fertilizer is a blend of seaweed, Medina Soil Activator, humic acid, molasses, emulsified fish, and hydrolyzed fish. This organic fertilizer contains no artificial chemicals. The slow release formulation prevents soil and air pollution, while encouraging rapid nutrient cycling.
This package contains one gallon of Johnís Recipe concentrate, which is enough to make 128 gallons
of ready-to-use fertilizer.
Nitrogen is one of the most important components of fertilizer - it's an essential nutrient for plants and it ensures rapid growth. Soil that is deficient in nitrogen causes plants to grow at a slower rate, and produce smaller flowers or fruit. Without sufficient nitrogen, plants are also more susceptible to disease and have slower recovery from injury. Learn why high NPK values are not important for organic fertilizers

This organic fertilizer
is a natural way to restore nitrogen to the soil. It incorporates several balanced sources of nitrogen that will release slowly into the soil. Slow release is important because it ensures that plants have exactly the amount of nitrogen that they need and that none of the fertilizer goes to waste. Why pay for fertilizer that will wash away or evaporate into the air? Excess nitrogen can also cause water pollution and poor air quality. Using the right amount is best for the environment and your pocketbook at the same time!
Areas with heavy rain fall or clay rich soils usually have poor levels of nitrogen. This is because some soil types lose nitrogen very quickly
. Nitrogen loss happens when anaerobic microorganisms turn nitrate compounds into nitrogen gas. These gases then escape into the air. Research indicates denitrification
rates range from 2 to 5 percent per day, with higher temperatures causing the highest loss rates.
When you add a high nitrogen fertilizer, much of the nitrogen breaks down or washes away before plants are able to use it. This balanced organic fertilizer
solves that problem by delivering nitrogen compounds in just the right form. It's like taking a vitamin pill instead of drinking a sports drink.
Each ingredient in the fertilizer performs a different function that complements the other components. Fish is included in the mix to supply nitrogen. Seaweed contains trace minerals and growth enhancers that promote strong root systems and help plants deal with stress. Medina Soil Activator fights against anaerobic bacteria and promotes good bacteria in the ground. Humic acid dissolves minerals in the soil and helps plants break up pebbles and rocks into useful building blocks. Humic acid also stimulates microorganism enzymes and amino acid activity, so that they can breed quickly and fight off pathogens. Molasses helps with bacterial activity - it acts as a food supply for beneficial microbes and also adds carbon and B-vitamins to the soil.
Johnís Recipe of Organic Fertilizer works as both a foliar spray or a soil drench. The fertilizer comes in concentrated form, and should be mixed with water before application.What is Medina Soil Activator?
Medina Soil Activator is a biological activator that stimulates helpful microbes and bacteria in the soil. These organisms have a symbiotic relationship with plants - they help convert nitrogen into usable forms, they extract micronutrients from the soil, and they help aerate plant's root systems. In return, plants provide dead leaves and simple sugars that the organisms break down into nutrients.
The Medina Soil Activator in this fertilizer contains active organisms derived from fermentation extracts. It is balanced with magnesium chloride, iron sulfate, and zinc chloride, so that these organisms can survive transportation. These ingredients are also nutrients that many plants need. Medina Activator neutralizes chemical buildup in the soil and also counteracts salt accumulation.
