For Soils with Low pH & Low Fertility. Our own formulation based on years of testing Sierra foothill soils, which are acidic and low in phosphorous, nitrogen, calcium, sulfur, and trace minerals.
Use it in similarly deficient soils. This blend contains soft rock phosphate, gypsum, oystershell lime, bonemeal, sulfate of potash and kelp meal. It is organic and supplies all deficient soil nutrients, except nitrogen. (For organic matter, see worm castings, compost or cover crops). Use at 20 lb/100 sq ft on new soils, less on soils which have been amended in the past. Contains 0.5%N-4.0%P-4.0%K.
This product should be suitable for use in organic agriculture as it has been deemed to be compliant with the USDA National Organic Program. However, as the status of any product can change at anytime, please always confirm that this product is allowed by your certifying agency.
Instead of buying five different fertilizers to make up my soil difficiencies can buy one. I live in the foothills and got a bag of this and have had really good results in my vegetable garden. I had beautiful, productive tomato plants using this and Blood Meal. It's great to have something formulated for acidic, clay soil like mine.Review by Steph the Photographer (on 6/21/11)
