Fall Fruit Tree Prep Mix

Fall Fruit Tree Prep Mix

To prepare your land in fall or winter for spring fruit-tree planting, use this mix. Without digging a hole, spread one bag on an area 4–6' in diameter. Cover with ⅛ yd (about 3½ cu ft) of compost and then with ⅛–½ yd of chipped branches and brush. As the chipped brush breaks down over the winter it promotes mycorrhizal fungi, which improve root growth and function. By spring you’ll have a rich spot ready to plant; just pull back the mulch, dig the hole, and incorporate the supplements and compost as you back-fill around the tree roots.

Contains Hi-Cal lime, Calphos, azomite, granite meal, Menefee humate, greensand, bone char, kelp meal, blood meal. MOFGA

Additional Information

Fedco Planting Mixes

All ingredients in our mixes are on the National List and on the MOFGA list of allowed products.

Fertilizers

Fertilizers provide nitrogen and other nutrients in a form that is readily available to plants. Foliar sprays get nutrients directly to the leaves and are important sources of amino acids, which increase resistance to disease and to insect infestation. Our products provide both an immediate boost and, unlike nonorganic chemical fertilizers, additional long-term fertility, feeding both the plants and the organisms that maintain soil health.

Fertilizers should be used as a supplement to, not a replacement for, the nutrients provided by healthy soil. Sustainability requires that one develop a long-term plan of cover cropping, green manuring and composting.

While we try to stay current with product specifications, product formulations are subject to change without notice.

Organic Certification

Inoculants, soil amendments, fertilizers, livestock supplies and pesticides are labeled as:
OMRI: Organic Materials Review Institute. Most state certifying agencies, including MOFGA, accept OMRI approval.
MOFGA: Maine Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association. Reviewed by MOFGA and allowed for use on MOFGA-certified farms. Check with your certifier.
WSDA: The Washington State Department of Agriculture’s Organic Certifying division has approved these products for use in organic agriculture in Washington State. MOFGA has indicated that they will accept products on this list for their certification program. Check with your certifier.
Nat’l List: One-ingredient products on the NOP* List of Allowed Substances (subpart G of the Organic Foods Production Act, sections 205.601-606). Check with your certifier.
AYC: Products whose active ingredient is on the list of allowed substances, but which are not on the OMRI or WSDA list. Ask your certifier.
Not Allowed: A few of the products we list are not allowed for organic production but we think they have a place in sensible agriculture and can be used when certification is not an issue.
