Say Hello To Nature’s Very-Own Powerful Bio-active Soil Improver And Fertiliser – Goodbye To Insects And Pests! Made in Ireland! Nature’s natural defense against disease and pests. Containing bio-active insect chitin, it not only boosts soil health, it actively promotes root development and plant growth.
What is chitin? It is commonly found in the outer coverings of insects and shellfish, as well as in the cell walls of fungi and algae. Pronounced KAI-TN, it is a polymer of N-acetylglucosamine, a derivative of glucose. When plants are in the presence of chitin it activates immune responses and elevates natural defenses against attack from insects and diseases. It also increases the bio-active health and performance of plants by stimulating and balancing micro-organisms in the soil.
Benefits It’s organic and is certified by the Irish Organic Association (IOA). It’s suitable for a variety of organic and natural horticulture and agricultural practices. It’s of particular interest to organic soft-fruit growers, vegetable and flower producers, viticulturists, and garden enthusiasts. Equally, it’s good for developed plants or winter spreading as a soil conditioner and ideal for up-coming crops such as wheat, barley, potatoes, brassicas, and root vegetables.
Slow Release Nitrogen Over Time It’s recommended to use less over time, compared to other mineral soil balancers because it’s pre-charged with microbial colonies that slowly release nitrogen over time.
How To Use: Either combine it with water or scatter across the soil, much like other soil improvers/ fertilisers. For example. 360g per 3sqm is recommended for soil preparation, and pre-planting.
