DTE™ AZOMITE® can improve root system growth, crop yields, quality and flavors. This granulated grade is ideal for blending with other fertilizer materials or amendments as a trace mineral resource to help meet plant nutritional needs.

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 tbsp. per hole, mix into soil and water in well.
For new plantings, add 2-3 tbsp. per gallon of soil and mix thoroughly or add 0.5-1 lb per cubic yard. For established plants, lightly mix 1 tbsp. per gallon into the soil surface every other month during the growing season.
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.
Apply 3-6 lbs per 1,000 square feet and water in well. Three to four applications per year are recommended and results may be enhanced if applied following aeration. For new lawns, apply 6 lbs per 1,000 square feet and mix into top 3″ of soil before seeding or sodding.
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 to the soil 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.
