Here are some benefits of using crab meal fertilizer in your garden:

1. Rich In Nutrients

Crab meal is a good source of calcium, phosphorus, nitrogen, and magnesium. These nutrients are crucial for plant growth and development. The slow release of these nutrients helps in improving soil structure, increasing soil fertility and enhancing plant growth.

2. Promotes Healthy Root Development

Crab meal contains chitin, a complex carbohydrate that can help promote soil health and improve root development. Chitin is broken down slowly by soil microbes, which releases nitrogen slowly and supports root growth in plants.

3. Helps In Pest Control

Crab meal contains chitin, which can be used to repel or control pests such as nematodes, slugs, and snails. The chitin in crab meal is thought to stimulate the production of enzymes that break down chitin in the exoskeletons of insects, making them more susceptible to attack by beneficial bacteria and fungi.

4. Improves Soil Quality

Crab meal can help in improving soil quality by increasing its water-holding capacity, enhancing soil structure and reducing soil compaction. The slow-release of nutrients from crab meal also helps in increasing the number and activity of beneficial microbes in the soil, which enhance nutrient uptake by plants and improve soil fertility.

5. Great For The Environment

Crab meal is an all-natural product that is a sustainable resource and reduces waste. It is also an eco-friendly alternative to synthetic fertilizers that can have harmful impacts on the environment.
