 Post subject: NPK and Organic Fertilizers
PostPosted: Wed May 17, 2006 9:32 pm 
I found this on the Organic Gem website and thought it was very interesting:

A word on our N-P-K. Organic Gem's N-P-K is 3-3-.3. Do not be deceived by this. In studies at the University of Massachusetts, our product outperformed standard 10-10-.10 products. UMass has demonstrated that 80% of the nitrogen in standard fertilizers either gasses or leeches
off - our material does neither due to the oils and collagens in the product which help lock it into the soil. That fact alone gives Organic Gem an equivalent nitrogen level of 15.

I have read this claim before, but I wasn't able to find anything at the UofM or UMass Amherst Extension Service about this other than they intended to test it. The last update was Nov 2005.

Has the actual study been completed/published yet?

I got that information right from the companies web site. I did not inquire as to the UofM report.

If you like, you may want to contact this person at AMT, Ira;
