Envirokure is entering the turf market by introducing an exciting new organic product.This is one of the most interesting new organic products to come on the market. It is listed as a poultry manure derived liquid fertilizer with an OMRI certification. It is odorless and application rates are relatively low. The interesting aspect about this product is that it labeled as a N-P-K fertilizer but is also a live microbial “Bug in The Jug” product.
