The Perfect Blend for Better, Healthier Turf

Dry Crumbles® is the green solution that provides the nutrients healthy turf really needs.

PHOENIX, AZ (May, 2016) – Dry Crumbles® 6-10-1 + 10% Ca from BioFlora® contains a blend of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium that quickly greens turf—but so do most turf fertilizers. So what sets Dry Crumbles apart from the rest? Dry Crumbles is an organic, coarse-grade dry fertilizer formulated to include critical (and often overlooked) slow-release nutrients required for building healthier, more attractive and vibrant lawns throughout the year.

Turf grasses require a minimum of 16 different nutrients for normal development, according to Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences. The lack of even one mineral, such as calcium, can limit plant growth.[1]  BioFlora incorporates high levels of this essential mineral and other minor and trace minerals into its Dry Crumbles formula. While the nitrogen goes to work immediately, these extra nutrients release over time, broken down by the soil’s microorganisms. In this way, the turf receives the continuing nourishment it needs to thrive throughout the entire growing season.

“Something else that sets Dry Crumbles apart is the inclusion of enhanced humic acid, a source of soil-building carbon,” said  Stephen P. Pavich, senior plant nutritionist at BioFlora. “The carbon-based granules help improve the soil structure and its workability, and permit the soil to hold more water for an extended period of time.”

Dry Crumbles is an organic fertilizer, derived from completely composted poultry manure, bone meal, organic acids and trace minerals. Using Dry Crumbles eliminates the risk of toxic metals or sodium buildup in the soil, keeping it healthier and more fertile for continued turf growth.

Maintaining thick, healthy-looking turf throughout the growing season is essential for anyone responsible for athletic fields, parks, golf courses and similar venues. When turf professionals select Dry Crumbles, they can feel confident that they are choosing the standout product that will give their turf all of the nutrients that it needs to thrive long term.

Landscape turf professionals and home owners can apply Dry Crumbles throughout the year:

  • Early spring – promotes winter recovery and early greening
  • Late spring – encourages nutrient feeding through the root system
  • Summer – maintains turf color and vigor
  • Late summer – thickens lawns and provide essential nutrients for plant’s continued health
  • Fall – promotes sustained root growth to hedge against winter diseases
