Buy Blood Meal Fertilizer

Blood meal is a valuable byproduct of beef, pork, and poultry processing plants. Blood is heat treated to eliminate pathogens and remove impurities, and then dried. The dried blood contains 12 to 13 percent nitrogen by weight, making it one of the richest non-synthetic sources of nitrogen plant food.

Compost systems work most efficiently when the ingredients have a carbon to nitrogen ratio of about 30 to one. Wood chips, straw, dried leaves, and shredded paper products provide much-needed carbon. Weeds, grass clippings, and vegetable scraps are higher in nitrogen, but also contain carbon. Adding high-nitrogen blood meal to the mix will kick start microbe growth for faster composting.

When deer or rabbits devour garden plants, the best solution is to install a fence. The second best solution is to use an animal repellent. The scent of blood meal scares many plant eaters away for a fraction of the cost of other products. Just sprinkle it in the area that needs protecting and remember to reapply regularly. However, if cats, dogs, or other meat-eating animals are the problem, blood meal could make it worse.

Besides mowing and watering, part of keeping a lush lawn is fertilizing it properly in the fall. If you've ever shopped for grass fertilizers, you may have heard of winterizing fertilizer. Basically, this type of lawn food, typically a nitrogen-heavy version, prepares grass with an energy reserve for winter. For an explanation of why you should fertilize your grass just before wintertime and how you should do it, read ahead.

Why would you fertilize your lawn during the winterFertilizing way ahead of the growing season will help your grass grow healthy when the temperature warms up. You might see companies refer to such seasonal fertilizers as winterizing fertilizers. This name is somewhat misleading since you want to apply the fertilizer during late fall when grass growth slows down. They're all about preparing your grass for winter.

Prevention of iron chlorosis with Fe synthetic chelates is a widespread agronomical practice but implies high costs and environmental risks. Blood meal is one of the main fertilizers allowed to be used in organic farming. Through this work a novel blood meal fertilizer was audited. Measurements such as FTIR, Raman, electron paramagnetic resonance, and Mössbauer spectroscopy, UV-visible properties, stability against pH, and batch experiments were performed to characterize and assess the reactivity on soil constituents and agronomic soils. The spectroscopy findings give clear indications that Fe is in the ferric oxidation state, is hexacoordinated, and has a low-spin form suggesting a similar structure to hemin and hematin. A spectrophotometric method at 400 nm was validated to quantify blood meal concentration at low electrolyte concentrations. Batch experiments demonstrated high reactivity of blood meal fertilizer with soil constituents, mainly in the presence of calcium, where aggregation processes are predominant, and its ability to take Fe from synthetic Fe (hydr)oxides. The beneficial profile of blood meal by a providing nitrogen source together with the capability to keep the Fe bound to porphyrin organic compounds makes it a good candidate to be used as Fe fertilizer in organic farming.

If you are looking for an affordable, nourishing, organic amendment to add nitrogen to your garden soil or compost, dried blood meal fertilizer may be the perfect option. This all-natural fertilizer is an animal by-product of cattle processing, and it is an excellent source of nitrogen.

In this article, we will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of adding blood meal to your garden soil as a nutrient booster. We will also suggest some alternatives for vegetarian and vegan gardeners. Read on to learn more.

A slow-release fertilizer the high nitrogen comes in a powdered form, which you work directly into the soil. For this reason, it is not a quick fix. It may take a month to see the results of your blood meal application. Therefore, it is a good product to use on a steady, ongoing basis; however, it is not the product you would reach for to correct an immediate problem.

Blood meal can be a truly organic fertilizer, depending on the source. When sourced from cattle or other animals raised without chemicals, it is organic. If not, it can contain all the chemicals, hormones and other additives found in commercially raised and processed beef cattle.

Nonetheless, if you are choosing between blood meal and chemical fertilizers, it is the more organic nitrogen choice. Synthetic fertilizer may get you quick results, but it will not produce lasting results. In fact, continued use of chemical soil amendments will kill off the beneficial fauna in your garden soil, destroy your soil and contaminate ground water.

Chemical fertilizers are not balanced or complete. They only provide synthetic versions of the three major elements, but they do not include the micronutrients necessary for plants to survive and thrive.

This is why many organic gardeners as a whole stick with traditional soil amendments such as meal blood fertilizer, fish emulsion and bone meal. Combined properly, these three provide an excellent balance of nutrients.

Blood meal is just what it sounds like. It is a powder made using the blood that is the by-product of animal slaughter. Most often, the blood used comes from cattle. It is an extremely high source of nitrogen that is steadily available to plants when mixed into garden soil.

Blood meal made with healthy blood is safe. As with any product you add to your food supply, you should know where the product you purchase originates. Read labels carefully and avoid buying blood meal fertilizer originating in countries with slack animal welfare and food processing laws.

Understand it is entirely possible for pathogens (such as those that produce Mad Cow Disease) to be conveyed to the soil and the fruits and veggies growing in it, via blood meal. This is why the USDA has placed import restrictions on both of these products when sourced in Europe.

Pound for pound, blood meal is a very affordable source of high-quality nitrogen. It comes in many sizes, so be sure to do the math to determine how much you are paying per ounce. Choose the brand that provides the best value in terms of both quality and quantity. Generally speaking, you can expect to pay between $1.50 and $3 per pound.

While animal-based products such as fish emulsion fertilizers, bone meal powder for plants and blood meal are old standbys in gardening and considered acceptable for organic gardening, if you are a vegan or vegetarian and/or have concerns about animal welfare or the spread of pathogens, you may wish to explore non-animal based soil amendment alternatives. Luckily, there are many, and they are very effective.

Alfalfa meal or pellets are readily and affordably available from your local feed store. Alfalfa fertilizer provides abundant amounts of fast-acting nitrogen, along with generous amounts of potash and phosphorous. For this reason, simple rabbit pellets make a very fine all-purpose fertilizer.

As a tried and true soil additive, blood meal provides excellent, slow released, high-quality nitrogen. Regarding plant health and growth, it is a great resource for many gardeners. The problems with blood meal lie in concerns about public health and ethics.

If you are frightened of Mad Cow Disease and other possible pathogens, blood meal may not be your fertilizer of choice. Likewise, if you are concerned with animal welfare and/or you are a vegan or vegetarian, you may wish to shun the use of this animal-based product. Luckily, if this is the case, there are many non-animal sources of nitrogen for you to use.

Before you add bloodmeal or any other amendment to your soil, get an idea of its makeup. You will not be able to attain the balanced, nourishing soil needed if you are unaware of the nature of the soil you have. A simple soil test will provide you with the complete nutrient breakdown and the pH level of your soil.
