What is it used for? Azomite is the inorganic fertilizer byproduct of mining in certain ancient volcanic areas of Utah. It provides trace minerals to the soil, rather than acting on the macronutrient content of soil. Most of the time, it is worked into the soil as a conditioner or added to compost.
How & When To Apply?
Double the broadcast rate for new orchard plantings. Apply annually to all trees on ground surface under the drip line. Apply a light coating from the trunk out to the drip line. Recommended application rate for trees: 20" Add 50 lb of Azomite per ton of compost, preferably at the beginning of the process.
Generally, Azomite is a slow-release fertilizer. You should apply it once or twice a year. If you use Azomite as a soil amendment, you can apply it at planting time or mix it into the soil before planting. If you are using Azomite as a fertilizer, you can apply it according to the instructions on the product label.
Benefits? Azomite promotes root growth, which increases the probability of plant survival, especially when the climate is unfavorable to plant growth. It keeps plants greener and tastier.
