What it does

PLANTING
Promotes healthier, more robust root systems and stronger thicker stem and branch growth on all plants. This allows plants to withstand adverse conditions. Also encourages earthworm activity within the root zone, which enhances nutrient availability.

CLAY SOILS
Loosens all clay soils. Provides better moisture penetration, softer soil, improves drainage and nutrient availability.

SANDY SOILS
Binds sand particles together in sandy soils, which reduces nutrient leaching and improves moisture availability.

All established Orchards and new plantings.

Extremely beneficial when planting or transplanting all  plants, including small crops.
