  • Huge adsorptive surfaces that increase water retention capacity of sandy soils by 200%-800%
  • When processed, has the ability to release moisture to root systems over a prolonged period
  • Organic nutrient delivery system
  • Salt buffering capability; protecting plant tissue from saline poisoning
  • A matrix providing a natural ‘home’ for beneficial micro-organisms, such as nitrogen-fixing bacteria and mycorrhizal fungi.
  • Stimulates meristems, leading to rapid root development
  • Buffers rising salt residues
  • High level of natural substances beneficial to young plants, such as organic acids and a range of macro elements
  • Rich source of Humates; humic and fulvic acids
  • Improves fertilizer retention and nutrient availability
