AZOMITE SLOW-RELEASE (15 LBS)
AZOMITE® is a highly mineralized complex silica ore (Hydrated Sodium Calcium Aluminosilicate or HSCAS), mined in Utah from an ancient deposit left by an volcanic eruption that filled a small nearby seabed an estimated 30 million years ago. AZOMITE® is used as a naturally rich soil re-mineralizer for plants, as well as a feed ingredient for animals. In a typical chemical assay, AZOMITE® contains more than 70 trace minerals which include many rare earth elements (lanthanides). Many of these elements have been depleted from soils worldwide.
AZOMITE® is mined from an ancient volcanic ash deposit in central Utah, USA. Scientists believe that the unique chemical make-up of AZOMITE® was created when an ancient volcano erupted and the ash settled into a seabed. The combination of seawater, fed by hundreds of rivers rich in minerals, and the rare and abundant minerals present in volcanic ash created the AZOMITE® mineral composition unique to its deposit.
C.B.D MINERALS-VINTAGE STONE FLOUR (17 LBS)- CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK!
Boogie is proud of the acronym for definition of BEST: "Broad Elemental Spectrum Tectonic". Broad Elemental Spectrum refers to the rock dust having a broad spectrum of desired minerals for soil remineralization. C.B.D. Minerals is the ideal basalt for this purpose because of this analysis(C.B.D Minerals Analysis...). Tectonic ultimately refers to earth shaping forces. All of these are required to make the best rock dust.

- WHAT IS REMINERALIZATION?
- WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES IN GRADATIONS?
- HOW MUCH ROCK DUST DO I USE?
- Trees & Shrubs: 1 cup per 1 inch of trunk diameter. Till minerals into soil if possible and water thoroughly.
- Vegetable Gardens & Flowers: Use 10 lbs per 100 square feet and till in at the time of planting. Use 5 lbs of Minerals per 100 square feet as a top dressing during the growing season. Lightly rake in and water thoroughly.
- Lawns: Top dress 10 lbs per 200 square feet lawn. Use 5 lbs per 200 square feet of lawn after aeration. Apply using a lawn spreader. Water in thoroughly after application.
- Container Plants: Use 1 cup per cubic foot of potting soil. For surface applications use 1 tsp per every inch of pot diameter then light stir into the top of the soil and water thoroughly.
- Compost: Mix 2 cups per cubic foot.
For maintaining foundation fertility after initial remineralization; Very low rate foliar applications or fertigation of 5-25 lbs/acre of the highly micronized gradations will provide nutrient and energy loads once or more times per season. 1 – 2 tons/acre can be used as a top dressing or incorporated during tillage every 1 to 3 years depending on production and crop rotation. That converts to 5 – 10 lbs./100 square feet. Seven year rotation cycles can also be integrated with rock dust applications over fallowed ground.
We strongly recommend the use of aqueous solutions of micronized minerals and inoculants for foliar, fertigation and drenching during the growing season.

- APPLICATION RATES
Comparing the chemical analysis of Cascade Minerals against other products is like comparing apples to oranges, because our product contains higher ratios of certain elements (and vice versa). Yet, when it comes down to plant health and vigor, Cascade Minerals clearly stands above most other brands. For example, our coarse particle size is more beneficial in soils and potting mixes than the extremely fine particles in other products. In addition, the difference in sources makes a tremendous difference in results. Our Remineralizing Soil Booster is made of 100% all-natural, finely milled volcanic basalt whereas some other products are derived from montmorilonite clay.
The pH is about 7.9. That may seem high, but basalt has a limited effect on pH in the soil. Most rock minerals are neutral when they dissolve because for the most part they do not take away hydrogen ions (H+). A well-known example of this is gypsum (CaSO4), an amendment which does not modify soil pH. The main exception among rock minerals of course is limestone (CaCO3); as it dissolves it steals 2 H+ ions from the soil to form Ca++, H2O, and CO2. When basalt dissolves in the soil it releases Ca, Mg, Fe, Mn, and several other ions that interact with exchange sites in the soil. Some of the silicon that held those ions is also dissolved and will attract H+ ions, but not to the extent that occurs with limestone.
Calcium carbonate equivalent (CCE) is a measure of liming potential on a scale from 0 to 100. Typical agricultural grade lime has a CCE of about 90. Cascade Minerals Remineralizing Soil Booster has a CCE of about 9, so our basalt is not much of a liming material.
On a different note, basalt is an excellent source of iron in high pH soils. Several university studies have shown that the iron in basalt is better at alleviating iron chlorosis in plants than the synthetic chelated iron products. Keep in mind that Cascade Minerals Remineralizing Soil Booster is a naturally mined mineral, so it’s 100% Organic. Furthermore, the silicon that hydrolyzes to produce that pH 7.9 in lab tests is a good thing because it’s an indication of plant available silicon (silicic acid). Available silicon in Cascade Minerals Remineralizing Soil Booster is one of the key features that makes it so beneficial for plants regardless of the pH of your soils.
