Priding ourselves on providing the nutrient-rich and easy-to-apply granular fertilizer products your crops need to thrive, McNaughts offers a variety of high-quality fertilizers, including DAP, MAP, MOP, SOA, Urea, and Superfect.

What Are Granular Fertilizer Products?

Dry and traditionally coming in pellet form, granular fertilizers typically deliver nutrients more slowly than liquid ones as they first need to break down and dissolve into the soil.

Granular fertilizer can supplement the natural loss of minerals and nutrients, allowing for faster crop growth and a more consistent supply of nutrients in the soil. Benefits of granular fertilizer include:

  • Easier storage
  • Easy application
  • Slow-release of nutrients can help nourish crops further into the season
  • Fewer applications per year
  • More efficient option for heavy preplant application
  • Typically more cost-effective

Granular fertilizer can be applied any time of the day or year and can last anywhere from two to five months. One application is typically enough for the entire growing season.
This fertilizer is great for feeding crops before spring growth but can also be used at the end of the growing season and sometimes even in mid-winter.

You can spread granular fertilizer by hand or with a spreader for larger areas. Dry fertilizer should be worked or watered into the top 3 – 5 inches of soil. During the growing season, you can apply the fertilizer to the top inch of soil as a supplement.
Try to apply granular fertilizer just before rain to help it break down and work its way towards the roots.

A slow-release granular fertilizer can take as much as a week to fully dissolve into the soil, while a quick-release fertilizer can take just 24-48 hours. It may take two weeks or more for plants to begin showing signs of improvement.
