Area Application Rates
Vegetable Gardens: Apply 2 tablespoons of BioGranules per square foot (1 lb. per 100 square feet) of planting area or apply a pinch of BioGranules with each seed. Work into top 4 – 6 inches of soil; add seed or transplant, and water in.
Vegetable and Flower Transplants: Add 1⁄4 inch layer BioGranules to bottom of transplant hole.
Transplanting: At the time of transplant, use low salt amendments such as fish emulsion as starter fertilizer. Best results have been achieved where a cover crop is worked in prior to setting transplants.
Turfgrass: Apply 1 lb. of BioGranules per 100 square feet when seeding. Work into 4 inches of existing soil. Add seed, rake and water thoroughly.
Maintenance: Following aeration, dethatching or scarification, apply 1/2 lb. per 100 square feet and mix into the top 4 inches of soil. Water in.
