Doc explains the importance  of organic matter and applies after doing his spring lawn aeration.  This time Doc is using a spike aeration but most will do a core.  He explains how improving your soil quality will reduce the amount of fertilizers needed.

Study of DDGs

Dr. Steve Vaughn, horticulturist with the Agricultural Research Service in Peoria, Illinois, said the product does appear to inhibit dicot weeds, but the herbicidal effect may be temporary. After a time, DDGs appear to provide nutritional ­benefits and promote plant growth.

“I am much more interested in the fertilizer aspect,” he said.

For his tests, Vaughn has been modifying the DDGs. Other value-added products, such as phytosterols, which are used in margarines to lower cholesterol absorption, can be extracted along with a considerable amount of oil that is left. The resulting product does not have the objectionable fermented odor that DDGs have, and it does not go rancid, but it still has potential as a fertilizer, with an NPK rating of 6-2-1.

When he applied it to Roma tomatoes, the treated plots produced 52 percent more tomatoes than the untreated. In tests with turf, Vaughn compared the DDG extract with urea. After three months, the urea plot looked as if it had never been fertilized, but grass in the DDG plot was greener and had more growth, he reported.
