How to Use Soil Conditioner
You may be wondering, what the difference between soil conditioner vs. fertilizer is. After all, fertilizer also adds nutrients. It is true that fertilizer can add nutrients to soil and plants, but in clay, compacted or hard pan soils, these nutrients can become locked up and unavailable to the plants. Fertilizer does not change the soil structure, so in poor quality soil they may help treat the symptoms but they may also be a total waste of money when the plants can’t use the nutrients they add. The best course of action is to amend the soil first, then start a fertilizing regime.
Organic soil conditioners improve soil structure, drainage, water retention, add nutrients and supply food for microorganisms, but some organic soil conditioners can be high in nitrogen or use up a lot of nitrogen.
Clay soil management plan:
Eco Soil conditioner is integral to the clay soil management plan. Because of the humified nature of Eco Soil conditioner and its low concentrations of oxidizable carbon and available nitrogen, Eco Soil conditioner is relatively resistant to further decomposition, and additions of Eco Soil conditioner to the soil over time can increase the soil's organic carbon and humic matter content. Eco Soil conditioner is to provide nutrients as to provide stabilized organic matter that will improve the physical properties of the soil.
Damaged Soil Management:
Eco Soil conditioner repair damaged soil and help maintain the soil quality for plant life. Over time soil will become compacted, Eco Soil conditioner help to loosen the soil as well as replenish and maintain nutrients in order for the plants to flourish. For the best result it is important to mix the soil and the Eco Soil conditioner before planting.
Additional nutrients, such as calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, may be augmented by amendments as well. This enriches the soil, assuring plants to grow bigger and stronger.
