- Nat'l List
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.
Mason City Label Wilbur-Ellis Label Wilbur-Ellis Spec Sheet
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!
