BenVireo® StimSentials® 5-4-1 dry pelleted fertilizer can be used in all crops that require nitrogen, but is designed mainly for use as a microbial stimulant to encourage chitin degrading microbes. BenVireo StimSentials 5-4-1 has a medium C:N ratio with a moderate protein content that, under normal growing conditions, will mineralize at a slow rate, acting more like a slow release nitrogen source. A small percentage (3-5%) of the meat and bone meal is used as a binder. BenVireo StimSentials 5-4-1 can be used as a fall or spring application to stimulate microbial populations. It is most efficient when incorporated into the soil. Consult your Wilbur-Ellis representative for specific use rates.
