I understand why you like the stuff and I was tempted till I found out that it’s not just human poopie cleaned up and turned into a product. It’s all the chemicals that were flushed down into the sewer and that includes factory “byproducts.” It’s not organic, no matter what they say.

You might want to do a Google search on the difference between synthetic and organic fertilizers.

Milo is an organic fertilizer.

There are many Milo imitators on the market now, but my top pick is still Milo.

Milo is organic only in the sense that it’s derived from sewage sludge, which is indeed full of organic poop. What they don’t tell you is that everything goes into the sewer, including effluent from factories and the drugs that people excrete, just for starters. When you put that on your lawn, you take away two of the biggest arguments for even having a lawn...do you really want your kids and pets playing there?

Have yet to find a better product than Milo for spring and summer lawn care.

Many have tried to imitate, but it is still the one people go with each season.

Stocking up early this year on Milorganite before everyone decides to get theirs.

What's a good price for the 32 lb. bag? It varies so much by time of year and store it's hard to tell...
