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.
