What’s That Smell?

It occurs every 30 days, you can smell it but you can’t see it so what could it be? The earthy odor that you smell is a DPW (dried poultry waste) organic fertilizer. A local company called Organix Supply does all my custom blending allowing me to tailor the fertilizer blends to match my soil conditions.

You are only as good as your soil. There is no truer statement when it comes to growing quality plants, whether it's corn, wheat or turfgrass. We rely on organic fertilizers to help rebuild the soils that have been destroyed due to years of synthetic fertilizer use and poor irrigation water quality. The organic fertilizer is one of the keys to replenishing the depleted soils by boosting the microbial populations, so that nutrient cycling can once again take place.
