Use caution when using fertilizers

Posted on March 15, 2017 at 9:40 PM

Recent studies have shown that nitrate levels are rising in many local

water bodies. Nitrate is a form of nitrogen that is found in inorganic

fertilizers. Nitrogen is needed to help lawns stay healthy. When fertilizer

is applied correctly, the grass will use all the nitrogen. If applied

incorrectly, nitrogen can leach into our groundwater or wash off the land

and into lakes, rivers and the gulf. Once in our water bodies, nutrients

from fertilizer may cause algae to grow. Algae can form large blooms

that shade out beneficial aquatic plants and use oxygen that fish need to

survive.
