Azomite is a distinct organic source of a broad spectrum of approximately 70 trace mineral elements and micro-mineral which are vital in both plants and animals. Azomite is mined from mineral-rich volcanic ash deposits and contains a lot of rare elements that are not found in other organic and artificial fertilizer such as silica.
It is an organically mined mineral source approved by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) thus extensively used in agriculture. Azomite trace minerals are purported to improving mineral contents of the nutrient-depleted soils. It has been proven to generally improve root systems, plant vigor in garden vegetables and field crops. Azomite is also used as a feed ingredient for animals. It supplies the vital trace elements necessary to support optimum plant functions, unlike other conventional fertilizers which focus only on micro-nutrients largely used by crop farmers and gardeners to replenish the depleted trace minerals in the soil.
Azomite 0-0-0.2 is generally used to enhance and increase the number of fruits and vegetables (also known as "crop yield"). It also improves plant immunity, boosts pest resistance, and generally improves plant health because it increases and improves nutrient amount. Azomite 0-0-0.2 application rates vary depending on where you plan to apply both on turf or lawn, trees, vegetables, and flowers.
Field Crops: Apply 75 – 200 lbs. per acre initially followed by annual maintenance of 50 – 100 lbs. per acre or according to needs based on soil quality.
Citrus/Fruit/Vines: Apply annually to all trees on ground surface under the drip line at the rate of 1 to 5 pounds, depending on the tree size. Double the application for decline or blight stricken trees. For grapes, apply 1⁄2 lb. to 1 lb. to the soil around each plant and lightly till into soil.
Flowers/Plants/Vegetables: When preparing the soil, use AZOMITE® at the rate of 1 lb. per 10 sq. ft. If in rows, mix into the soil along the rows at the rate of 1 lb. per 25 ft. of row. If the bed is established, sprinkle around each plant. For houseplants, mix 1 teaspoon per 2-inch pot diameter with potting soil before planting. Give 1 teaspoon quarterly thereafter. For roses, apply 1/2 lb. to 1 lb. to the soil around each plant and lightly till into soil.
Lawn/Turf Care: For existing lawns, a 44-pound bag will cover 12,000 to 15,000 square feet. Apply up to 4 times per year. For new lawns, apply at a heavier rate and till into soil before planting seed or laying sod.
Ornamentals/Shrubs/Trees: Apply annually to all trees on ground surface under the drip line. Recommended application for trees:
Tree Base Diameter Rate
<10" 1-5 Pounds
10" -- 20" 5-15 Pounds
>20" 15-40 Pounds
Apply light coating from trunk to drip line. For ornamentals and shrubs, apply 1⁄2 lb. to 1 lb. to the soil around each plant and lightly till into soil.
