Soil Application Guidelines
AZOMITE® will not harm or burn plants. Apply directly or with compost, humus, manures, fertilizers, beneficial soil microbials. May be used in compost tea productions.
Field Crops Apply 75 –150 lbs. per acre initially followed by annual maintenance of 50 –100 lbs. per acre or according to needs based on soil quality.
Citrus/Fruit/Vines Apply annually to all trees on ground surface under the drip line at the rate of 1 to 5 pounds, depending on the tree size. (Refer to table above for more guidelines.) Double the application for decline or blight stricken trees. For grapes, apply 1⁄2 lb. to 1 lb. to the soil around each plant and lightly till into soil.
Flowers/Plants/Vegetables When preparing the soil, use AZOMITE® at the rate of 1 lb. per 10 sq. ft. If in rows, mix into the soil along the rows at rate of 1 lb. per 25 ft. of row. If bed is established, sprinkle around each plant. For houseplants, mix 1 teaspoon per 2-inch pot diameter with potting soil before planting. Give 1 teaspoon quarterly thereafter. For roses, apply 1/2lb. to 1 lb. to the soil around each plant and lightly till into soil.
Lawn/Turf Care For existing lawns, a 44 pound bag will cover 12,000 to 15,000 square feet. Apply up to 4 times per year. For new lawns, apply at a heavier rate and till into soil before planting seed or laying sod.
Ornamentals/Shrubs/Trees Apply annually to all trees on ground surface under the drip line. Recommended application for trees:
Tree Base Diameter < 10” - Rate 1 –5 lbs. Diameter 10” –20” - Rate 5 –15 lbs. Diameter > 20” - Rate 15 –40 lbs. Apply light coating from trunk to drip line. For ornamentals and shrubs, apply 1⁄2 lb. to 1 lb. to the soil around each plant and lightly till into soil.
