Do not use soft water (from a water softener).
Shake well before applying. Please note that not all of
the IRON EARTH™ will dissolve.
There is a 1 oz. scoop inside each 4 Lb. bag of IRON EARTH™
Boron is necessary for cell wall formation,
membrane integrity, calcium uptake and may aid in the translocation of
sugars. Boron affects at least 16 functions in plants. These
functions include flowering, pollen germination, fruiting, cell
division, water relationships and the movement of hormones. Boron must
be available throughout the life of the plant. It is not translocated
and is easily leached from soils. Deficiencies kill terminal buds
leaving a rosette effect on the plant. Leaves are thick, curled and
brittle. Fruits, tubers and roots are discolored, cracked and flecked
with brown spots.
Calcium activates enzymes, is a structural component
of cell walls, influences water movement in cells and is necessary
for cell growth and division. Some plants must have calcium to take up
nitrogen and other minerals. Calcium is easily leached. Calcium, once
deposited in plant tissue, is immobile (non-translocatable) so there
must be a constant supply for growth. Deficiency causes stunting of
new growth in stems, flowers and roots. Symptoms range from distorted
new growth to black spots on leaves and fruit. Yellow leaf margins may
Chlorine is involved
in osmosis (movement of water or solutes in cells), the ionic balance
necessary for plants to take up mineral elements and in
photosynthesis. Deficiency symptoms include wilting, stubby roots,
chlorosis (yellowing) and bronzing. Odours in some plants may be
decreased. Chloride, the ionic form of chlorine used by plants, is
usually found in soluble forms and is lost by leaching. Some plants
may show signs of toxicity if levels are too high.
Cobalt is required
for nitrogen fixation in legumes and in root nodules of nonlegumes.
The demand for cobalt is much higher for nitrogen fixation than for
ammonium nutrition. Deficient levels could result in nitrogen
concentrated in roots of plants and plays a part in nitrogen
metabolism. It is a component of several enzymes and may be part of the
enzyme systems that use carbohydrates and proteins. Deficiencies cause
die back of the shoot tips, and terminal leaves develop brown spots.
Copper is bound tightly in organic matter and may be deficient in
highly organic soils. It is not readily lost from soil but may often
be unavailable. Too much copper can cause toxicity.
Iron is necessary
for many enzyme functions and as a catalyst for the synthesis of
chlorophyll. It is essential for the young growing parts of plants.
Deficiencies are pale leaf color of young leaves followed by yellowing
of leaves and large veins. Iron is lost by leaching and is held in
the lower portions of the soil structure. Under conditions of high pH
(alkaline) iron is rendered unavailable to plants. When soils are
alkaline, iron may be abundant but unavailable. Applications of an
acid nutrient formula containing iron chelates, held in soluble form,
should correct the problem.
Magnesium is a critical structural component of the
chlorophyll molecule and is necessary for functioning of plant enzymes
to produce carbohydrates, sugars and fats. It is used for fruit and
nut formation and essential for germination of seeds. Deficient plants
appear chlorotic, show yellowing between veins of older leaves;
leaves may droop. Magnesium is leached by watering and must be
supplied when feeding. It can be applied as a foliar spray to correct
involved in enzyme activity for photosynthesis, respiration, and
nitrogen metabolism. Deficiency in young leaves may show a network of
green veins on a light green background similar to an iron deficiency.
In the advanced stages the light green parts become white, and leaves
are shed. Brownish, black, or greyish spots may appear next to the
veins. In neutral or alkaline soils plants often show deficiency
symptoms. In highly acid soils, manganese may be available to the
extent that it results in toxicity.
Molybdenum is a
structural component of the enzyme that reduces nitrates to ammonia.
Without it, the synthesis of proteins is blocked and plant growth
ceases. Root nodule (nitrogen fixing) bacteria also require it. Seeds
may not form completely, and nitrogen deficiency may occur if plants
are lacking molybdenum. Deficiency signs are pale green leaves with
rolled or cupped margins.
Nickel has just
recently won the status as an essential trace element for plants
according to the Agricultural Research Service Plant, Soil and
Nutrition Laboratory in Ithaca, NY. It is required for the enzyme urease
to break down urea to liberate the nitrogen into a usable form for
plants. Nickel is required for iron absorption. Seeds need nickel in
order to germinate. Plants grown without additional nickel will
gradually reach a deficient level at about the time they mature and
begin reproductive growth. If nickel is deficient plants may fail to
produce viable seeds.
Nitrogen is a major
component of proteins, hormones, chlorophyll, vitamins and enzymes
essential for plant life. Nitrogen metabolism is a major factor in
stem and leaf growth (vegetative growth). Too much can delay flowering
and fruiting. Deficiencies can reduce yields, cause yellowing of the
leaves and stunt growth.
Phosphorus is necessary for seed germination,
photosynthesis, protein formation and almost all aspects of growth and
metabolism in plants. It is essential for flower and fruit formation.
Low pH (<4) results in phosphate being chemically locked up in
organic soils. Deficiency symptoms are purple stems and leaves;
maturity and growth are retarded. Yields of fruit and flowers are
poor. Premature drop of fruits and flowers may often occur. Phosphorus
must be applied close to the plant's roots in order for the plant to
utilize it. Large applications of phosphorus without adequate levels
of zinc can cause a zinc deficiency.
Potassium is necessary
for formation of sugars, starches, carbohydrates, protein synthesis
and cell division in roots and other parts of the plant. It helps to
adjust water balance, improves stem rigidity and cold hardiness,
enhances flavour and colour on fruit and vegetable crops, increases the
oil content of fruits and is important for leafy crops. Deficiencies
result in low yields, mottled, spotted or curled leaves, scorched or
burned look to leaves..
Sodium is involved in osmotic (water movement) and ionic balance in plants.
Silicon is found as a
component of cell walls. Plants with supplies of soluble silicon
produce stronger, tougher cell walls making them a mechanical barrier
to piercing and sucking insects. This significantly enhances plant heat
and drought tolerance. Foliar sprays of silicon have also shown
benefits reducing populations of aphids on field crops. Tests have
also found that silicon can be deposited by the plants at the site of
infection by fungus to combat the penetration of the cell walls by the
attacking fungus. Improved leaf erectness, stem strength and
prevention or depression of iron and manganese toxicity have all been
noted as effects from silicon. Silicon has not been determined
essential for all plants but may be beneficial for many.
Sulfur is a structural component of amino acids,
proteins, vitamins and enzymes and is essential to produce
chlorophyll. It imparts flavour to many vegetables. Deficiencies show
as light green leaves. Sulfur is readily lost by leaching from soils
and should be applied with a nutrient formula. Some water supplies may
Zinc is a component of enzymes or a functional
cofactor of a large number of enzymes including auxins (plant growth
hormones). It is essential to carbohydrate metabolism, protein
synthesis and internodal elongation (stem growth). Deficient plants
have mottled leaves with irregular chlorotic areas. Zinc deficiency
leads to iron deficiency causing similar symptoms. Deficiency occurs
on eroded soils and is least available at a pH range of 5.5 - 7.0.
Lowering the pH can render zinc more available to the point of toxicity.
Below is a list of trace minerals, these are earth bound, natural
occuring minerals categorized as "Organic". Some people are easily
confused by "In-Organic minerals and elements" It is imporatnt to note
these two types are very different. Below, we are only referring to the
organic, naturally occuring minerals that have existed in the earth's
soil for millions of years.
Trace Minerals (ppm)
Why is Re-mineralized Soil Important?
| Europium 0.9
Today soil is missing key nutrients. Scientists have tested
soil samples for over 100 years and the statistics are poor mineral
values in today's soil. The soil samples have been collected and
measured in every state, and every province, in North America. Not one
area has adequate mineral-rich soil. This information was presented in
1936 by Dr. Linus Pauling in a Senate document that referred to the
findings and problems with the depletion of minerals in the soil.
It has long been known that our soils are depleted of minerals
important to the life and health of plants, animals and humans. In 1936
the United States Department of Agriculture issued U. S. Senate Document
264 stating that "virtually all soils in the United States are mineral
Scientists at the 1992 Earth Summit in Brazil submitted
documentation that soils worldwide are depleted of minerals. The
agricultural soils in the United States rated as one of the worst with
83% of essential minerals missing.
Scientists trace diseases and ailments to mineral deficiency.
decades ago, as part of an investigation into American farming
practices, Senate Document 264 revealed, “foods grown on millions of
acres of land no longer contain enough minerals and are starving us.”
Quietly hidden from the public all these years, this alarming study also
found that 99% of North Americans had serious nutritional deficiencies.
Today, modern agricultural methods have virtually eliminated
nature’smost important nutrient delivery carrier, fulvic acid, which
helps transport more minerals, enzymes and oxygen to the cells. The
result? Millions of people with degenerative diseases.
Nobel Laureate, Dr Linus Pauling, said "You could trace every disease
and every ailment to a mineral deficiency."Approximately 99% of the
human body is comprised of minerals,yet minerals are generally
overlooked when nutrition isconsidered. It is well known that the human
body requires at least 60 minerals in order to maintain a disease and
ailment free state. If this information is indeed true, it's easy to
understand why sickness is so prevalent throughout the world, even in
technologically advanced countries. The body can utilize minerals
without vitamins, but vitamins and most other nutrients are basically
useless in the absence of minerals.
Foods we raise or purchase in
markets today, seldom contain more than 16 to 18 minerals. This small
number of minerals in plants is because of a mineral deficiency of the
food producing soils around the world. This is caused by thousands of
years of erosion, fertilizers, air and water pollution and unwise
farming practices. Except for nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, the
agriculture industry doesn’t replenish minerals depleted from the soils.
Ironically, these three are the primary ones required to grow beautiful
plants and produce, but do not provide all that our bodies require.
research is showing that without supplementation, it is not likely that
we can eat enough food to get the full range of essential trace
minerals required to obtain optimum health and longevity. Research has
also found that without adequate nutrients, our cells experience a
breakdown that can lead to chronic conditions. Decades of pesticides,
herbicides, toxins and pollution have drained our farmlands and food
supply of their vital elements — including organic Fulvic Acid, a
natural molecule long considered one of the most complete answers to the
body’s need for life-giving minerals, oxygen, enzymes and amino acids.
