Azomite is a natural product mined from an ancient mineral deposit that typically contains a broad spectrum of over 70 minerals and trace elements, distinct from any mineral deposit in the world. Azomite is used internationally as a feed additive and a soil re-mineralizer for plants, and is available in over thirty countries throughout the world. Azomite trace minerals have been reported to improve root systems, yields and general plant vigor in a variety of field crops and garden vegetables. Available for a variety of applications, AZOMITE can be used to re-mineralize nutrient-depleted soils.
Elemite is a stable, all natural mineral product, produced in the U.S.A. This unique montmorillonite conglomerate crushed to apply easily. Elemite is perfect for all types of agriculture from the home gardener to large commercial farmers. Aquaculture, hydroponics and biodynamic farming are both emerging and time honored methods of production that benefit from the addition of Elemite.
Glacial Rock Dust is a natural mineral product which is produced over many thousands of years by glacial action. Glacial Rock Dust can replace key elements that have been depleted from soil over the years. Replacing these missing minerals increases soil health which produces healthier plants. Gaia Green Glacial Dust supplies silicate minerals in a form readily used by soil microbes to create healthy soil. Our Glacial Dust lets the soil re-create the colloids (minerals and humus) which are needed to improve soil structure, moisture holding properties, nutrient availability and bacterial action.
Glacial Dust helps restore the correct mineral balance in the soil. When the correct balance is achieved organic matter is turned into humus and the soil becomes a favorable environment for a host of beneficial molds, fungi, bacteria and earthworms. When this happens, the living soil becomes a buffer to the many variables gardeners must contend with.
Regular use of gypsum is essential to the sustainability of most irrigated soils. Irrigated land eventually leads to sodicity and salinity unless extreme care is taken. Gypsum is a key ingredient for the maintenance of agriculture on many types of soil and over a wide pH range, including sodicity. Gypsum, in addition to prevention and correction of sodicity, include: greater stability of soil organic matter, more stable soil aggregates, improved water penetration into soil, and more rapid seed emergence.
Using humates restores the natural balance in soil necessary for optimal plant growth. It helps increase crop yields, root growth, chlorphyll content, and nutrient uptake. Humates improve plant quality, soil structure, and water retention.
Oyster Shell is a high quality soil conditioner which consists of 96% calcium carbonate and many micro-nutrients. Ground Oyster Shell provides a long-lasting, steady release of nutrients to help regulate pH levels, promote healthy cellular structure, increases fertilizer uptake, and enhance soil tilth. Oyster Shell is also helpful in creating more active habitats for soil microbes in compost piles and worm bins. Highly beneficial when planted with tomatoes, peppers and eggplants.
