Is All Natural Liquid Rabbit Tea Fertilizer Safe?
Our fertilizer is extremely inert. So inert, in fact, that many of our animals on the farm will lick the fertilizer when it spills. And they’re not the only ones! The rabbits themselves have to eat their own pellets as part of their diet which actually helps them! Because the fertilizer is inert, it is is one of the few “cold fertilizers” out there, meaning you can spray it on your plants without burning them. This is one of the reasons you don’t need a license to spray our fertilizer on your land.
However, if you plan to use the fertilizer on gardens or any edible plants, discontinue use 90 to 120 days before harvest. Do not spray directly on any vegetables or fruits.
Does the Fertilizer Smell?
We don’t think so! Because rabbit pellets are so inert, there’s little smell associated with them, which makes convincing the kids to spray it around much easier!
How Much Fertilizer Will I Need to Cover My Land
We recommend a 1 gallon of fertilizer to 5 gallons of water dilution rate, and a 10 gallon per acre application rate. Using these recommendations it will give 1.7 gallons of fertilizer per acre.
For example: 50 Gallons of fertilizer will cover approximately 30 acres of pasture, at a cost of less than $11.00 per acre. This is according to the suggested 1-to-5 dilution rate (with water) and 10 gallon per acre application rate.
How Much Should I Dilute My Fertilizer?
Dilute at a ratio of 1 gallon of fertilizer for every 5 gallons of water. This will give you a ready-to-spray fertilizer for your lawn, garden, or pasture.
What Kind of Water Should I Use to Dilute My Fertilizer?
Use well water, untreated pond water, or rainwater with NO chlorine to dilute your fertilizer. If you are using water with chlorine, you need to put your water into your sprayer tank and leave the lid off the sprayer for 24 hours before adding the fertilizer. This will allow the chlorine to dissipate out of the water.
What if I Don’t Want to Dilute My Fertilizer?
That’s okay! The fertilizer can be used at a less diluted rate without any fear of burning your plants, lawn, garden, or pasture.

How Soon Should I Use My Fertilizer?
Your fertilizer can be kept viable for some time with proper handling. However, we recommend you use your fertilizer soon after you receive it. This will give you the best possible results.
How Should I Store My Fertilizer if I Don’t Want to Use It Right Away?
We don’t recommend storing the fertilizer if you can avoid it. Try to use it as soon as possible after purchase. However, if you have to store your fertilizer while waiting to use it, keep it in a cool shady area and open the tops on the barrels or totes. We recommend you store the fertilizer no longer than 5 days this way.
What If I Want to Store My Fertilizer Longer Than 5 Days?
Up to 50 gallons of your fertilizer can be stored up to 14 days with aeration, but you shouldn’t keep it longer than that. To store your fertilizer for this long, you’ll need an aquarium pump with 2 air stones. This will help to aerate the fertilizer and keep it viable. When using fertilizer that has been stored for more than 48 hours after purchasing from us, add 1 cup of unsulfured molasses to 50 gallons of fertilizer as you are putting it in your sprayer.
Information on storing larger amounts of fertilizer upon request.
