This is the LARGER bag with a full 44lbs.
Mineralogically, AZOMITE® can be described as a rhyolitic tuff breccia, which is a hard rock formation that formed from the dust of a volcano that erupted an estimated 30 million years ago. The deposit resulted from the vocanic ash merging with seawater to form a mineral composition completely unique to its location and circumstance. The registered trade name, AZOMITE®, represents the "A to Z of Minerals Including Trace Elements". Chemically, AZOMITE® is a hydrated sodium calcium aluminosilicate (HSCAS) containing other minerals and trace elements which the National Research Council recognizes to be essential. HSCAS is listed in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (21 CFR 582.2729) as an anti-caking agent that is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA. After completing a series of manufacturing steps AZOMITE® is stored for bulk shipment or packaged in bags and palletized for distribution all over the world.
AZOMITE granuals will break down gradually in the soil. We recommend applying 1-5 lbs. per tree annually, or spread out with regular fertilizer feedings. For estimating purposes, 44 lbs will feed 10-12 trees for one year when following the Urban Farm Fruit Tree Care Program. More information will be included in the Fruit Tree Care Program Emails starting in January.
AZOMITE® trace minerals have been reported to improve root systems,
yields and general plant vigor in a variety of applications; from field
crops and orchards to lawn and garden use. AZOMITE® helps remineralize
nutrient-depleted soils. 100% naturally derived, AZOMITE® is OMRI Listed
for use in organic production and farming.
"Scientists have long recognized that adequately nourished plants
and animals are resistant to infectious diseases. There is a growing
recognition that healthy plants may effectively resist insects. There is
speculation that the nutrient-dense sap of healthy plants provides
protection against freeze damage. Based on research studies, reporting
higher trace element levels, we believe your plants will show trace
element and nutrient improvement with AZOMITE® use."
