Crab Shell
(2.5 – 3.0 – 0.5 CA 23) Crab Shell is an excellent source of NPK, Calcium and micro nutrients. When applied to the soil it is an excellent source of chitin, promoting the growth of chitin eating bacteria. These bacteria then feed on the chitin contained in the cell walls of nematodes and fungi present in the soil. Crab shell also triggers a defense response in the plant to release enzymes that attack the chitin and creating a hostile environment for the fungi and nematodes. Also shown to reduce ant populations in the garden. Apply at 3#/ 100 sq ft, 100-200#/ acre. NOP
