Milorganite is composed of heat-dried microbes that have digested the organic material in wastewater. Milorganite is manufactured by the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District. The District captures waste water from the metropolitan Milwaukee area, including local industries such as MillerCoors. This water is then treated with microbes to digest nutrients that are found in it. Cleaned water is then returned to Lake Michigan. The resulting microbes are then dried, becoming Milorganite fertilizers. The Milorganite program is one of the world’s largest recycling efforts.

Curious to hear from others using iron products like Miloraganite...very effective this time of the year to use on your lawn, shrubs, and flowers. Slow release so it won't burn and gives that nice green color.

I would never use the product. I would never intentionally contaminate my yard--even if it's low-level contamination. But I'm biased--I once worked at a sewage authority so I know what all gets flushed into the sewers.

LOL seriously, there is always something.

July 4th is my marker for time to apply Milorganite to not only my lawn, but also shrubs and flowers.
