Fertilizer Analysis
September 10, 2021

Just like all living things, plants need the proper balance of nutrients to grow and stay healthy. Fertilizer ensures your lawn has all the nutrients, in the proper amounts, it needs to grow. Using fertilizer is simple, but it’s important to do so properly.

Feed your lawn every other month beginning in April. A lawn fed three to four times a year develops a deep root system to resist heat, drought and wear. It also develops thick green top growth to naturally resist weeds, disease and insects.

Canadian holidays are an easy way to remember the best times to feed your lawn. Think Mother’s and Father’s Day, Labour Day and Thanksgiving. In the Spring, green means go fertilize. As the rain returns and the ground warms, watch for your lawn to begin to green.

Feed your lawn promptly to encourage deeper root growth and provide a healthy foundation for the growing season ahead. Avoid applying fertilizer before a heavy rain is expected.

Please consider and familiarize yourself with the MB Governments restrictions/rules with regards to phosphorus enriched fertilizers.

We encourage all fertilizer applicators to follow Fertilizer Canada’s 4R Nutrient Stewardship Practices; The Right Source at the Right Time, with the Right Rate, in the Right Place.

What is ESN and what are its advantages?

• ESN is a controlled release nitrogen fertilizer. It consists of a quality urea granule contained within a unique polymer coating.
• ESN can handle periods of severe, extended drought when it is left on the soil surface, it may slowly dry out and may become hard. It will rehydrate and become soft, once moisture is present again.
• The release of N from ESN is temperature dependent, but there is not a specific “on-off” temperature.
• ESN can start releasing N at temperatures above the freezing temperature of water, since liquid water is necessary for the diffusion process, but ESN releases very slowly at cold temperatures to protect the N when crops are growing slowly.

Leftover Fertilizer

If you are left with extra fertilizer at the end of the season you can use it, share it or store it. Store in the original package, and in a dry environment.
