Glossary

Rock Dust Plus – Feeds the Soil

This is a unique mineral fertiliser made from volcanic rock dust and 16 other minerals and nutrients. It results in nutrient and mineral dense food for improved human health.

Rock Dust Plus has a cumulative effect on your soil. Each time you use it, it adds to the mineral and nutrient bank while also helping to build soil structure, which results in amazing water holding ability.

Seaweed Tonic – Gets The Plant Ready

This is a liquid concentrate that promotes root development and stimulates immunity in plants, protecting them against pests and disease.

Hydrofish – Helps The Plant Grow

This is a 100% pure liquid fish concentrate made from fish by-products. It is a hydrolysate not an emulsion. A hydrolysate is produced from a natural enzyme digestion process, which breaks down the fish, unlike fish emulsions that are cooked to remove valuable oils – Hydrofish still contains these oils. It contains undamaged protein and is rich in nitrogen – which drives plant growth.

Soil Drench:

simply means watering in with a watering can – following diluted application rates.

Foliar Spray:

simply means wetting the foliage of plants using a watering can, spray bottle or pressure sprayer – following diluted application rates.
