After years of heavy fertilizer use, many lawns lose their ability to retain minerals. Repeated applications of Nitrogen, Phosphorous, and Potassium displace other nutrients that plants need for healthy, sustained growth. Chemical fertilizers can also destroy soils natural ability to retain water, because they lead to a buildup of insoluble compounds.

Whole Earth Soil comes from a mine in southeastern Utah, near where dinosaur bones are found. This layer of soil contains the remains of extinct ferns, cycads, conifers, and angiosperms (flowering plants like magnolia, ficus, and sassafras). The soil was virtually sealed by volcanic eruptions millions of years ago, and the climate of the area has historically been very dry. This unusual combination of events protected the Humate ore from rain, which is why it's exceptionally rich in soluble nutrients and vital fulvic acids.

Put 75 million years of composting to work in your garden! This soil conditioner includes two types of colloidal plant matter - Humic Shale Ore and Leonardite. Between these two forms of ancient humus, Rich Earth Soil Conditioner offers more than 70 essential trace minerals in colloidal form - these minerals can improve the health of your plants and boost the nutrient content of your fruits and vegetables.

Rich Earth Mineral Soil Conditioner releases nutrients slowly - a single appication works for 6 to 9 months! This soil treatment is also OMRI listed, which means that it meets with the approval of the Organic Materials Review Institute in the areas of organic production, processing, and handling.
