Hi Murph –

Alfalfa pellets are a terrific organic fertilizer. We like them better than the meal because they’re easier to spread and less dusty. Some growers prefer using alfalfa, over other nitrogen sources, because it’s plant-based, containing approximately 4-5%N. It also contains trace minerals and triacontanol, a naturally occurring plant growth promoter. As for cost, a 50 lb bag is going to set you back about $20.00.


Hope this helps!
