This listing is for 1lb (16oz) of a mix of the additives below. Unless otherwise requested, we will mix to our own specifications. Options for additives are as follows:
Premium Solution Grade (Diamond K) Gypsum: By incorporating Gypsum a form of Calcium Sulfate into your soil fertility management program you can quickly improve the structure of clay-bound soils and encourage sustainability of irrigated fields. Soil conditioners such as Gypsum are among the best-known in assisting growers and farmers to improve their soil structure. This organic fertilizer contains ample amounts of Calcium (22.5%) and Sulfur (18.0%) in a 200 mesh solution grade formula. Gypsum penetrates deep in the soil layers improving soil structure, fruit quality, and effectiveness of other organic inputs. If you are looking to improve your soil structure and drainage while eliminating the toxic effect of aluminum or salts it is paramount that you incorporate Gypsum into your soil amendment plans. Calcium will help improve soil structure and create oxygen conditions essential to improve the soil and in turn the health of plants. Soils filled with proper oxygen increase the quality of crops which leads to increased yields.
BrixBlend Basalt – Promotes nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables. A perfect blend of particle size optimizes the function of the rock dust in the soil matrix. Use this rock dust for the “Enhanced Weathering” effect for carbon and nitrogen capture, assimilation, and chelation of mineral complexes for plant nutrient uptake in the root zone and for promoting good tilth. An all-purpose paramagnetic rock dust. Perfect for direct-to-ground applications in gardens, raised beds, orchards, lawns, ornamentals, soil or soil-less mixes, and composting.
BrixBlend Microfine Basalt: Basalt Microfine is the BEST paramagnetic regional rock dust for remineralization in a stone flour gradation. Works in fruit and vegetables, turf, forestry, greenhouse, and remineralizing compost. This rock dust may be incorporated directly into growing media or suspended in liquid for fertigation, drenches, watering house plants, etc. May be incorporated into potting soils up to 5% by volume.
GreenMountain Granite: A traditional rock dust favored by fruit and berry growers for its charge of potassium and high silicon. This grits-to-dust gradation is typical of an old-world “granite meal”, can be applied directly to the ground or mixed with planting media.
BlueRidge Basalt: Basalt Rock Dust for remineralization. Fresh crush. Paramagnetic. Premium quality volcanic rock dust pulverized for use in broadfield applications, for fruit and vegetables, grains, forestry, compost, potting mix, and soil blends. Provides essential elements and micronutrients.
Baja Sea Minerals: Agricultural grade pure sea minerals. Provides macro and micronutrients in a natural salt mineral harvested in the Baja. Best used for broadcasting on soil, pastures, hayfields, row crops, small fruits, tree fruits, nuts, and gardens. Helps restore CEC and conductivity in sandy soils after heavy rains. Sea minerals have also been used for livestock mineral supplements. Conforms to USDA National Organic Program Standards
