Alfalfa Meal is an amendment that invigorates the biological activity in the soil. Alfalfa is a protein feed for livestock and offers the same benefit to ruminants as it does for organisms in the soil. It contains ~17 percent crude protein, which translates into 2.75 percent nitrogen and, with a C:N ratio of 15:1, its N is mineralized gradually. Alfalfa meal also contains triacontanol, a natural growth hormone. Experiments with triacontanol have shown significant increases in plant growth compared with untreated plants. The alfalfa in this product is grown on certified organic farms. Application rates are usually ~10 lbs/1000 ft2
