The gardening season quickly approaches, and it’s time to start thinking about fertilizers and amendments to help make your garden the best it’s ever been!
First off… what exactly is langbeinite? Down To Earth™ Langbeinite 0-0-22 is a naturally mined crystalline mineral that supplies the water-soluble sulfate form of three vital plant nutrients: potassium, magnesium and sulfurs. Its maximum chlorine content is less than 3.0 percent, minimizing the potential for fertilizer “burn,” and it’s neutral pH does not alter soil activity. Potassium is essential for high-quality fruit, magnesium is required for the synthesis of chlorophyll, and sulfur is needed for enzyme activation.
Potassium contributes strongly to overall plant health by regulating internal processes. Since potassium makes up part of the fluid of the plant, it is found throughout plant tissue, meaning plants need a strong source of potassium as they grow. Potassium deficiencies lead to weak stalks and immature roots, leaving the plant susceptible to insects.
DTE™ Langbeinite 0-0-22 is widely used on sensitive vegetables and fruit crops that require high fertilization rates but do not tolerate high levels of chlorine or soluble salts. This standard grade langbeinite has a typical SGN (size guide number) of 95 and is an excellent source of readily available sulfur, potassium and magnesium.
Our Langbeinite is OMRI certified and is available in 5lb, and 50lb sizes.
