Re-mineralize nutrient-depleted soils and improve plant growth
This powder grade is ideal for blending with other fertilizer materials or amendments as a trace mineral resource to help meet plant nutritional needs. It can be applied directly or in combination with composts, fertilizers, manures or soil inoculants.MITE is a natural mineral product mined in central Utah. This unique deposit was formed when an ancient volcano erupted and its ash settled into a prehistoric seabed creating a complex mineral composition. AZOMITE can improve plant and root system growth, crop yields, and quality as well as re-mineralize nutrient depleted soils.

Vegetable Gardens & Flower Beds:
To prepare new gardens, apply 1-2 lbs per 10 square feet and thoroughly mix into the top 3” of garden soil in spring or fall. For new transplants, add 1-2 tsp per hole, mix into soil and water in well.
For new plantings, add 1-2 tbsp per gallon of soil and mix thoroughly OR add 0.5-1 lb per cubic yard. For established plants, lightly mix 1-2 tsp per gallon into the soil surface every other month during the growing season.
Trees, Shrubs & Vines:
Spread 1 lb per 2″ of trunk diameter around the base outwards to the drip line, mix into soil surface and water in well. For grapes, apply ½-1 lb around each plant and thoroughly mix into soil. For new trees, prepare transplant hole and mix 4-8 oz with the backfill soil. Use the amended soil to fill in around the new tree and water in well.
Apply 75-150 lbs per acre initially, followed by annual maintenance applications of 50-100 lbs per acre or according to specific crop needs and soil quality.
