ZeoMax Garden Aid

ZeoMax Garden Aid

Zeolites are aluminosilicate lattices, derived from volcanic ash, that hold up to 55% of their weight in water in the small cavities of their crystal structure. If one tablespoon of zeolite crystals were unfolded, they would cover an entire football field! Negatively charged, the lattices hold the cations of essential elements.

Zeolites can improve the productivity of any texture of soil, improving water and mineral retention in sandy soils and improving aeration and minimizing compaction in heavier soils. Added to compost, zeolites retain ammonium ions and prevent their transformation to ammonia gases, keeping the nitrogen from escaping into the air.

Add 2–3# for each 10# of potting soil. In gardens add 15–20#/100 sq ft to the top 6" before planting. Spread 1–2½ tons/acre. Water thoroughly after application so the zeolites will absorb the moisture, holding it in a thin film on their surfaces until needed. MOFGA

Additional Information

Rock Powders and Soil Amendments

Thriving sustainable agriculture is built on the ground of a healthy soil. In fact, organic certification requires a soil management plan. Do a soil test to determine your soil’s needs before embarking on a program of soil improvement.

Rock powders and soil amendments used with a program of crop rotation, composting and cover cropping will enhance fertility, improve soil tilth, promote disease resistance, support beneficial soil microorganisms, and even help restore balance to the garden and the world around it. Application rates vary depending on soil type and results of soil tests. Used with organic fertilizers, rock powders and soil amendments will help address immediate fertility needs as well as long-term requirements of sustainable growth. Rock powders can be applied directly to soil but their nutrients will be more readily available to plants if incorporated into compost.

Organic Certification

Inoculants, soil amendments, fertilizers, livestock supplies and pesticides are labeled as:
OMRI: Organic Materials Review Institute. Most state certifying agencies, including MOFGA, accept OMRI approval.
MOFGA: Maine Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association. Reviewed by MOFGA and allowed for use on MOFGA-certified farms. Check with your certifier.
WSDA: The Washington State Department of Agriculture’s Organic Certifying division has approved these products for use in organic agriculture in Washington State. MOFGA has indicated that they will accept products on this list for their certification program. Check with your certifier.
Nat’l List: One-ingredient products on the NOP* List of Allowed Substances (subpart G of the Organic Foods Production Act, sections 205.601-606). Check with your certifier.
AYC: Products whose active ingredient is on the list of allowed substances, but which are not on the OMRI or WSDA list. Ask your certifier.
Not Allowed: A few of the products we list are not allowed for organic production but we think they have a place in sensible agriculture and can be used when certification is not an issue.
