logoAZOMITE® Minerals for Land and Soil

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.”

Soil Amendment Resources / The Law of the Minimum

LawOfTheMinimumThe Law of the Minimum

What AZOMITE® does can be explained through the “Law of the Minimum”, a therory developed by chemist Justus von Liebeg; whose contributions to agricultural and biological chemistry earned him the moniker of Father of Fertilizer. Liebig’s Law states that plant growth is determined by the scarcest (or minimum) nutrient available to it. Illustrated by Liebig’s barrel (right).

Without all of the required nutrients available in a soil environment, its resident plant life will not reach full potential. Conventional fertilizer programs focus on macro-nutrients like Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (p) and Potassium (K). However, if one of the many essential trace elements is deficient in its soil, the plant will not perform at its optimum, effecting yield and immune function.

The AZOMITE® mineral deposit contains a distinctive combination of rare earth elements and trace minerals found nowhere else on Earth, and can help replenish depleted soils to a more vibrant, nourished state, naturally.
