How Do Bone Meal Fertilizers Work?

Bone meal is a mixture of crushed and coarsely ground bones that is used as an organic fertilizer for plants and formerly in animal feed. As a slow-release fertilizer, bone meal is primarily used as a source of phosphorus. This organic fertilizer enables plants to store and transfer energy, promotes root, flower and fruit development, and allows early maturity.


Bone meal has a high phosphorous content and lasts in the soil for several years after application so it doesn’t require continual reapplication. Bone meal is also 100% organic so doesn’t negatively impact the environment like some synthetic fertilizers.


Bone meal fertilizer takes longer to break down in the soil and is less potent than chemical fertilizer. If not applied in the right amounts at the right time, plants may not get the nutrients they need. Because it must be applied in larger quantities than synthetic fertilizers, it can be more time consuming and expensive to growers.

What Are Fertilizer Boosters?

Fertilizer boosters work to make plants more efficiently process nutrients and moisture available in the soil. Fertilizers like bone meal, which take time to break down, benefit from enhanced root stimulation that allows more effective uptake of the phosphorous as it is made available by the bone meal.

How BioWash Helps You

Because of how BioWash dramatically improves root growth and stimulation in plants, available moisture and nutrients are more efficiently and quickly absorbed by the plant, promoting faster growth and higher yields. This efficiency translates to faster maturity and earlier harvests, resulting in more profit and less expense to the grower. Isn’t that what you want?
