To date the organic movement has succeeded in producing crops without synthetic fertilisers, pesticides or herbicides. Our vision is to take this a step further to develop and market natural plant growing supplements, and media, that continue to demonstrate and sustain both higher nutritional and improved environmental benefits.
As a first step towards realising this vision, on 1st January, 2011, we became the exclusive primary distributor of SEER® Rockdust®. This finely ground and freshly crushed volcanic rock is 420 million year old. Analysis shows that it contains over two thirds of all of the elements in the period table – although not, of course, in elementary form! See our SEER Rockdust flier here.
All over the world volcanic soils are recognised as being exceptionally fertile and productive. This is due to their richness of minerals and trace elements. It’s been 10,000 years since the last ice age when glaciers crushed and spread mineral rich volcanic rocks to create deep fertile soils. A tiny, but critical percentage of the dry weight of all plant material that we take as crops is made up of minerals. Most modern fertilisers however replace only the basic NPK ie Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium and very little more. This, and the leaching of minerals caused by precipitation over time, explains why most of our soils are now mineral-deficient.
BECOME A SOIL REMINERALISER …
By adding SEER Rockdust you are mimicking the action of glaciers, or as John Muir calls them “God’s Glacial Mills”. Yes, SEER Rockdust adds 6 out of 7 of the recognised “Macro-nutrients” and 8 our 9 of the recognised “Micro-nutrients” Read More. The goodness that has been locked up in these rocks for over 420 million years can now go back into the soil, the crops, the food chain, our own and our livestock’s diets.
THIS HELPS COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE
When you improve soil health, you increase the carbon it can hold – this is called Carbon Sequestration.
