Neptune's Harvest Organic Crab Shell Multi-Purpose Fertilizer, 1-0-2, 12 pound pail
Neptune's Harvest Crab Shell is an excellent dry organic source of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Calcium (23%) and Magnesium (1.33%). It can also help with nematode and fungus problems.
Here's how it works: Crab Shell is high in Chitin (Kite-en), which promotes the growth of Chitin eating bacteria living in the soil. The exoskeletons of fungus and nematode eggs are also high in chitin. By adding the Crab Shell to the soil it creates a hostile environment for both the fungus and nematodes by feeding the biological life that eats chitin and chitin based organisms.
For your garden, till Neptune's Harvest Crab Shell in as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring. For perennial crops, apply at the end of the dormancy. Mix thoroughly with the soil or growing media, but be careful not to apply in concentrated form directly to the roots.
To apply Neptune's Harvest Crab Shell as a soil conditioner for fruit groves, ornamental trees, lawns and turf, apply directly as a top dressing.
