It doesn’t matter what type of grass you have—lawn or pasture, Bermuda or St. Augustine—at Conroe Feeders, we speak fertilizer! We don’t just guess at what your soil needs might be, we do soil samples at no cost. With those results, we can detect deficiencies to blend and fill fertilizer to meet your exact requirements to help you grow a strong, healthy lawn, pasture, or garden. Our suppliers, American Plant Food and Nitro-Phos, help us produce the perfectly calculated formula, whether you need one bag or multiple bulk tons. If it’s liquid fertilizer you need, we’ve got that too – along with the equipment to properly apply it.
There is a lot to know about your lawn or pasture and the relationship between it and your fertilizer. Fortunately for you, here at Conroe Feeders, we know about both and can help you find the right mix! Whether you have a problem lawn, are getting ready to seed, or just need to apply your fall fertilizer coat, we’ve got the right mix for your pasture!
Spring and Fall are the best times to fertilize and may require different fertilizers. There are fertilizer mixes available for growing grass while killing weeds, giving crops a boost while keeping pests away, or just simply for feeding. Fertilizer is available in spreadable mixtures or liquid spray varieties, and in organic or synthetic compounds. Contact us to find the right combination for your lawn or pasture!
How to Choose a Fertilizer
Choosing the perfect fertilizer for your needs will depend on the soil results to help correct deficiencies or to enhance the current state. What you are trying to grow will also affect which soil is best for you, whether you are attempting to grow grass, a flower garden, or a full vegetable farm.
Before you can correct or enhance the existing nutrients to feed the vegetation, you will need to ensure that the pH of the soil is between 6.0 and 7.0, as this is the ideal condition for plants to absorb the nutrients they need to grow. If the soil is too acidic or too basic, it does not matter what nutrients you add, they will not be properly absorbed. Our fertilizers can be mixed with the right components to raise or lower your soil’s pH, or we can provide you with the right product to fix the pH level prior to laying fertilizer.
Plants benefit from fertilizer because soil does not always have all the necessary nutrients for optimal growth. There are six primary nutrients that all plants require to thrive: carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, and three supplemental nutrients: calcium, magnesium, and sulfur. The first three — carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen — are provided in basic water and air, so as long as plants and their roots are getting adequate amounts of both, those levels should be good. It is the remaining six that must be provided by the soil, in the right amounts to promote growth. Additionally, micronutrients including boron, chlorine, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, and zinc each also provide essential elements to the soil, but in much smaller quantities. The best fertilizer mixes will have the right combination of all of the nutrients!
