How To Use Alpha Green Nutrient Fertilizers
Alpha Green Nutrient Fertilizers support an herbicide and pesticide-free environment.
For use in agriculture, horticulture, greenhouse, gardens, and turf.
Alpha Green Nutrient Pure™, Nutrient Vigor™, or Nutrient Vigor Plus™ pellets easily decompose without the risk of fertilizer burn.
Garden Beds: Spread by hand or broadcast spreader at a rate of 1 kg per 8 m2 (2.5 lbs/100 ft2). Work into the soil with a garden tiller or rake.
Lawns & Turf: Apply early spring or late fall. Spread by hand or broadcast spreader at a rate of 1 kg per 8 m2 (2.5 lbs/100 ft2) or for larger areas use 22 kg/185 m2 (48 lbs/2000 ft2). 2nd application mid-summer at half above rate. On high traffic areas or areas with salt or pet damage, use 2-4 times recommended application rate.
Shrubs, perennials, and annuals: Use approximately 200 g (1 cup) of pellets every 30 cm (12”) of drip line (where rainfall would drip off the canopy of the plant) and work into the soil. Re-apply every 6-8 weeks throughout the growing season.
Potted Plants: At the beginning of each season, mix approximately 100 g (1/2 cup) of alfalfa pellets per 4.5 L (1 gal) of potting soil.
Alfalfa Tea (Nutrient Pure™ pellets or meal): Add 400 – 800 g (2 – 4 cups) per 20 L (5 gals) of water and let sit 24 hours. The alfalfa tea can be used as a foliar spray or as a liquid fertilizer. Tea can be used as-is or strained to remove/reuse fibers. Use prepared tea within 24 hours. Apply once a month throughout the growing season. Can be re-brewed by adding fresh water up to 3 times.

On a cubic basis, these rates work out as follows:
80 to 160kg per 100m3 for Reconditioning and fertilizing
240kg per 100m3 for Saline soils
