Natural Zeolite is an Effective Natural Soil Amendment
100% natural mineral amendment with a Best cation exchange capacity for economic absorption.
Zeolite is dense and better porous with a molecular sieve structure. The unique natural attributes act as an effective mineral sponge, Absorb more water, drawn in, and collected by the zeolite granular, once mixed into the soil it creates space for crop aeration. Since the molecule is of a negative molecular charge and pH neutralizing it holds moisture longer than sand perlite, coco-coir, soil, clay, etc. while also slow-release fertilizer in the soil and prevent root-rot. Zeolite is used as natural soil amendment to work with soil fertilizer to be soil conditioner of PH and CEC of soil,and adsorbing heavy matels from soil.
In traditional agriculture, horticulture, and farming clinoptilolite is used widely as a slow-release carrier of fertilizers and as a soil buffering and aerating agent. Zeolite’s natural characteristics allow it to effectively adsorb macro and micro nutrients, with a pore size ranging from 4 – 7 angstroms. Especially, the natural zeolite clinoptilolite has a particular nutrient release curve that enables the mineral to adsorb nutrients and hold on to them well enough to withstand leaching by way of water runoff, but at the same time lightly enough that the plant roots can draw the nutrients back out.
Zeolite’s natural crystalline structure contains more pores and channels allowing oxygen to flow in and out of the mineral while also trapping and storing the oxygen. It was improved the availability of oxygen to the roots by zeolite and the aeration of the soil in general deterring anaerobic bacteria,root-rot, and stagnation.
Fertilizer requirements are reduced While nitrogen help to stimulate plant growth, it also contributes to water pollution; up to 70 percent of nitrogen contained in fertilizers is lost to the soil environment. Reduces nitrogen fertilizer requirements as a large portion of nitrogen fertilizer leach through the growth zone and into the aquifer. Zeolite will hold nitrogen and prevent the pollution of the water table by nitrates and nitrites.
Quickly use Zeolite, It will cut fertilizer and water costs by holding the nutrients and water in the root zone until the plant is ready to utilize them. It doesn’t require more fertilizer and water to be applied. Zeolite prevents compaction, increases infiltration, and helps the aeration of deep root systems due to its high surface area and porosity. This promotes the best stewardship of the land by reducing pollution brought on by fertilizers leaching to the groundwater or running off into surface water sources.
When used clinoptilolite properly, can yield some impressive results in regards to faster germination times, faster growth rates, larger plants, crop yields and don’t require more fertilizer and water applications. Clinoptilolite has a high CEC that enables a greater loading of plant nutrients such as nitrogen & micronutrients. It helps to hold more nutrients in the growing farm and is plant accessible but isn’t soluble in water.
Zeolite as molecular sieve is a 100% natural mineral product that improves fertilizer quality and productivity while withholding toxins from the environment. Zeolite is 100% natural for organic operations and when composted with manure, it becomes a natural fertilizing system.
