Description

For slow-release potassium & trace minerals New Jersey Greensand (also known as glauconite) is an organic source of potassium (3%). Mined from a 70-80 million year old marine deposit consisting of iron-potash-silicates and marine trace minerals. Naturally high cation exchange capacity, resulting in a slow release of potassium, useful for building the soil's potassium reserves, but not appropriate for quick remedy of a potassium deficiency.

  • Improves moisture holding capacity of garden soils and potting mixes.
  • Apply at 1-2 lb/plant or 5-10 lb/100 sq ft, 500-4000 lb/acre, depending on soil analysis.
  • Apply 1-2 lbs. per 1 inch of trunk diameter around the base outwards to the drip line
