North Country Organics Alfalfa Meal (2.5 – 0.5 – 2.2) is an amendment that invigorates the biological activity in the soil. Alfalfa is a protein feed for livestock and offers the same benefit to ruminants as it does for organisms in the soil. It contains ~17 percent crude protein, which translates into 2.75 percent nitrogen and, with a C:N ratio of 15:1, its N is mineralized gradually. Alfalfa meal also contains triacontanol, a natural growth hormone. Experiments with triacontanol have shown significant increases in plant growth compared with untreated plants. The alfalfa in this product is grown on certified organic farms.
