Mineral Application Methods
updated Jan 25/2016

For mineral/compost spreaders click here

Static Compost Piles add thin layers of Compost Rock FlourTM as the organic matter accumulates. Compost Rock FlourTM help reduce odours, lock up free ammonia and nitrogen, retain nutrients and maximize use of recycled waste. Helps speed up and complete compost process.

Solid Manure Storage add thin layers of Compost Rock FlourTM as the organic matter accumulates. Compost Rock FlourTM help reduce odors, lock up ammonia and nitrogen by up to 85%, retain nutrients and maximize use of recycled waste. Can be used in the barn layered over top of bedding.

Broadcast For large applications, please visit our compost/mineral spreader section. For garden applications adjustments may be needed for standard lawn spreaders. Custom spreaders may also be used. Be certain not to completely fill the canister of the spreader. It is important that you leave ample empty space (at least 1/3 of the canister) as the specific gravity of the minerals can cause bridging. Adjustments to the agitator or spinner plate of the spreader may be necessary. Apply organic matter afterwards. Watering is also recommended or apply prior to precipitation.Hand broadcasting is the simplest way to apply mineral complexes and is appropriate for most small lawns, garden and forested areas. Scoop the minerals in your hand and gently toss them similar to sowing seeds. If you open your hand like a fan when you toss, you will cover a larger surface. Do not be overly concerned with covering the entire area evenly, as the minerals are also dispersed with watering. Masks are recommended.

Top Dressing For large applications, please visit our compost/mineral spreader section.  For small applications we recommend scratching the ground with a rake or using an aerator prior to the application. This allows the minerals to penetrate into the scratched area. Raking will also discourage weeds and help remove thatch from lawns. We recommend an application of organic matter afterwards.

Tilling introduces minerals directly to the root zone. For large applications, please visit our compost/mineral spreader section Digging into the ground in between the rows of produce aerates the soil and allows roots immediate access to the minerals applied. For small gardens hoe minerals into the ground. Excessive amounts or depths of tilling can cause erosion.

Plugs drill 4-6 ” holes into the soil (3-6 per tree or bush or space every 2-3 feet for hedges) and partially fill them with minerals. Top up the holes afterwards with compost generously apply to surrounding area.

After applying minerals and compost saturate soil thoroughly with fresh water or apply prior to rain. Avoid Breathing Dust. Wear appropriate masks.
