Alfalfa Meal, Certified Organic (4-3-.7 + minerals) Slow acting all purpose fertilizer. An alternative to blood meal as a source of nitrogen, balanced with phosphorus and potassium. An excellent soil conditioner because of it's protein and carbohydrates that encourage microbial action in soil. Has an excellent carbon to nitrogen ratio which helps speeds availability in the soil to plants.
Kelp Meal, Certified Organic (1-0-2) Kelp Meal contains 60 trace minerals and an assortment of amino acids, enzymes, and alginates that feed and stimulate the necessary microorganisms in your soil. A healthy, active microbial population will breakdown organic material and improve the quality and texture of the soil.
Fertoz Organic Phosphorus derived from rock phosphate. Phosphate (P2O5) is one of the major macronutrients along with Nitrogen (N), and Potash (K2O). It is not acid forming, will not cake or harden. Fertoz adheres to and becomes a part of the soil. It will not leach and it will not revert and once applied remains in the soil until used by the plants. Fertoz contains no harmful acids and encourages growth of soil bacteria and earthworms. Phosphorus is needed for vigorous early root formation, better flower and seed production, better growth in cold temperatures, and better water use efficiency. Stunted growth, blue-green to purple coloration of the leaves, delayed maturity, and reduced production of flowers and seeds are signs of a phosphorus deficiency.
Wollastonite is a natural calcium silicate mineral and is unique among soil amendments as a source of silicon and carbon-neutral calcium. Research has shown plants supplemented with silicon have increased yields, even in prime growing conditions. Supplemental silicon strengthens plant cell walls and improves resistance to insects and disease. Silicon also stimulates plants natural immune responses, increasing the production of resins and terpenes and improving drought/stress resistance.
Hi-Calcium Lime Calcium plays a major role in the physiology of the plant by strengthening the plant's physical structure and helping develop protection from diseases. In the soil calcium aids in the reduction of soil compaction and provides a better environment for beneficial bacteria. Some research even suggests that calcium plays a role in reducing weed populations. Adjusts the soil's pH.
Gypsum Gypsum contains calcium which plays a major role in the physiology of the plant by strengthening the plant's physical structure and helping develop protection from diseases. In the soil calcium aids in the reduction of soil compaction and provides a better environment for beneficial bacteria. Some research even suggests that calcium plays a role in reducing weed populations.
