What nutrients does AZOMITE contain?

What nutrients does AZOMITE contain?

Chemically, AZOMITE is a hydrated sodium calcium aluminosilicate (HSCAS), which carries a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) “Generally Recognized as Safe” (GRAS) classification. In addition AZOMITE is listed for certified organic agriculture use by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI).

How many trace minerals does AZOMITE?

67 trace minerals
Azomite contains over 67 trace minerals. This is an ultra-fine water flowable (-200 mesh) powder and is excellent for coating seeds or irrigation for maximum germination and initial growth.

What is AZOMITE mineral?

What is AZOMITE? AZOMITE® is a natural product in Utah mined from an ancient volcanic eruption into a seabed and is distinct from any other mineral deposit in the world. AZOMITE is used internationally as a soil additive and organic fertilizer for orchardsand is available in more than 50 countries throughout the world.

Does AZOMITE have magnesium?

Azomite is a trademarked acronym for “A to Z Minerals Including Trace Elements.” Mined in Utah, it’s ancient volcanic dust that merged with sea water 30 million years ago. It’s high in potassium and iron and has small amounts of magnesium and other trace elements.

Does Azomite raise pH?

The pH of AZOMITE® is 8.0; however adding AZOMITE® does not seem to raise the pH. A pH of less than 7 is considered acidic. If the pH becomes too acidic, the availability of the soil’s aluminum and manganese can become toxic to plants. A coarser product, AZOMITE® Field Grade, is also available for soil use.

Is Azomite a clay?

A versatile clay, Azomite has great results when used to replenish soil and can also benefit animals when consumed internally.

How often should I apply Azomite?

What can I use instead of Azomite?

Basalt rock dust: Some sources say basalt rock dust is the optimal kind of rockdust, and I’ve never heard anyone deny that directly. It has less silica than Azomite and diatomaceous earth, for sure. It is higher in other minerals, however. It is said to be high in ferrous minerals.

Is Azomite a good source of silica?

Azomite® not only alleviates hidden hunger by supplying all elements necessary to plant and animal health, it also supplies a high level of bio-available silicon (as silicon dioxide unlike the silica in sand which is silicon oxide), a macro-element that is deficient in sandy and “muck” type soils.
