Azomite is a natural re-mineralizer for soil. It contains more than 67 trace mineral elements and every essential micro-mineral needed by plants and animals, including a wide range of rare earth elements and other minerals not included in fertilizers or animal feeds.
Azomite consists of a unique silica clay mined from a 30 million year old volcanic ash deposit. This despoit is unlike any volcanic deposit in the world. The volcano spewed ash into an ancient seabed. The ensuing combination of seawater --- fed by hundreds of rivers rich in minerals --- and the rare and abundant minerals present in volcanic ash created the Azomite deposit which is found nowhere else on Earth.
Where does Azomite come from:
Azomite is mined from an ancient volcanic ash deposit. Scientists believe that the unique chemical make-up of Azomite was created when an ancient volcano erupted and the ash settled into a seabed. The combination of seawater, fed by hundreds of rivers rich in minerals, and the rare and abundant minerals present in volcanic ash created the Azomite mineral composition unique to its deposit.
Where is the effect of Azomite on Plants:
Azomite is 100% natural. It is mined, crushed and sold without any chemical alterations or additions.
According to research and customer reports, plants grown with Azomite produce more and larger fruits and vegetables per plant resulting in a better tasting food products with improved resistance to disease. Azomite has shown positive results in a wide variety of plants in the field and in the laboratory. There is evidence that Azomite improves nutritional benefits.
Why use Azomite?
Crop farmers, gardeners and homeowners use Azomite to replenish depleted trace minerals in the soil. The presence of these minerals does the following:
Increases the number and size of fruits and vegetables per plant
Improves plant immunity
Decreases insect damage
Creates healthier looking plants
Micronized vs. Prilled
Micronized Azomite is a fine powder made up of tiny particles that are easy to dissolve in water or to spread in gardens when transplanting. Prilled Azomite comes in pellet form and is spread directly over the soil.
How to apply Azomite
Application rate for 1 Quart of Micronized Azomite:
Mix 2.5 tbsp. per 1 gallon of water per 40 sq. ft. and water lawn, garden, beds, trees and shrubs.
When transplanting, use 1 tsp. per 2 inch plant diameter.
Application rate for 1 quart Prilled Azomite:
Prior to planting: sprinkle in bed (at 3 tsp. per 10 sq. ft.) and water.
Vegetables and flowers: 2 tsp. per 10 sq. ft. add to hole when planting or sprinkle in garden bed then water.
Turfs and lawns: 1tsp. per 10 sq. ft.
Trees: 3 tsp. per 10 sq. ft. around the base of a tree, or 1 qt. per 1000 sq. ft. (use the canopy of the tree to determine square footage).
Application rate for 1 Liter of Prilled Azomite:
For commercial and agricultural application rates, use 44 lb./acre or 1lb./1,000 sq. ft. For vegetable or fruit production, double the amount of Azomite. For extremely depleted soil or heavy feeding crops, triple application rates
