Feather meal, a by-product of poultry processing is cooked and sterilized under intense heat using steam pressure cookers then dried and ground into a meal.

Our feather meal is 13% Nitrogen. It is a semi-slow release organic fertilizer providing plants with nitrogen over an extended period of time. Plants like corn, leaf vegetables and others requiring a consistent supply of nitrogen.

Feather meal begins to release its nitrogen within 4-7 days of application*. About 75% of the nitrogen is released at a steady rate “slow feed” as plants metabolize the nitrogen for 3 months or more*. The remaining nitrogen will release for up to another 3 months*.

*But there are several factors that will determine the rate of nutrient release, some of these include: soil pH level, moisture levels in the soil, soil temperature and the presence of enough micro-organisms to break it down into plant usable nutrients.

    Great Source of Nitrogen

    Feather meal is a soil amendment staple at our farm. If your soil is sufficient in OG, this product is an amazing source of long term N. I spread it in the furrow when planting onions, and mix it with blood meal when preparing the soil for our corn planting. Terrific results!

    Haven't applied the product yet but it was well packaged
    And arrived quickly at a reasonable price even with
    Shipping. I am trying to convince my local feed and seed
    Store to become a affiliate.
