SEA MINERALS AS FERTILISER
When sea minerals serve as plant food, the plants and soil take up more minerals and trace elements than they would get from any other type of fertilizer, including organic fertilizer. All of the earth’s elements, both known and unknown, can be found in sea water. Scientists have so far been able to identify 92 elements in sea water and 84 in unrefined sea salt.
Thus it makes perfect sense to use diluted sea minerals on the 30% land mass on which we live. Contrary to a healthy sea environment, there is more disease, aging, shortening of life spans and cell degeneration on land. By working with dilutions which are so extreme you can hardly taste the salt, there will be no salinisation of the plants and soil, so the minerals can be used to their full advantage to help crops develop, grow and build up resistance.
Disease is acidification. Sea minerals alkalize and mineralise the soil, which makes for a healthy soil and soil life. Insects, fungi and other pathogens only clean up weaker crops and will not touch ocean-grown crops or the crops will show remarkable resistance to these micro-organisms. Weeds often thrive on slightly acidic soils and they will also stay away. Insecticides, fungicides and herbicides are then no longer needed. These chemicals have a highly acidic effect and will only deprive the soil and soil life of vital nutrients because they don’t work with nature but against it. The same is true for artificial fertilizer and non-composted organic fertilizer. Sea minerals are a natural alternative which allows you to work with the building blocks of life and in perfect harmony with nature.
Sea Minerals & Grass
No other crop is more receptive to sea minerals than grass. Grass grows in all places and at all times, it grows on everything and nothing. It is the predominant species of green plant on the 30% land mass we live on and it is a true survivor. Give grass the pure life force of sea minerals and it will take up every single mineral. Other plants make their own selection from the ‘menu’ served up by sea minerals, but grass loves them all. It is often thought that many plants, most notably grass, cannot grow without nitrogen. Though nitrogen promotes rapid growth, an excess of nitrogen does not feed the plants nor does it promote real health.
Good food means good health, it is the fuel that keeps the engine running smoothly. Sea minerals act as nutrients because of their alkalizing and mineralizing nature, keeping disease and acidification at bay. The plant’s natural immune system is boosted in this way. Plants need minerals. They will get their nitrogen in other ways, just like they do their carbon and sulphur, as these naturally occur in the atmosphere (air, rainwater). These are life-giving substances and so are sea minerals.
Sea minerals not only promote fast growth, but above all healthy growth. In no other crop is this more visible than grass. Even if the difference between ocean-grown grass and grass fertilized in other ways is not immediately visible, any grazing animal will immediately select ocean-grown grass when given the choice, because the animal instinctively knows ocean-grown grass has more nutritional value. Ocean-grown grass contains a balanced complex of minerals and trace elements as well as large amounts of chlorophyll. This is good for the grass and the grazer. The milk and meat of these animals is good for us humans. Thus a cycle is established which literally starts at the root.
LET US KNOW WHAT YOU NEED
The best way of administering the almighty natural sheep drench is described below. We have now mixed the kelp and apple cider vinegar together with the other ingredients to make this easier for the use on the farm. We must stress that it is far better to use LOW dose rates regularly, rather than HIGH dose rates less often.
As the various oils in this product rises to the top of the container and tends to separate over time, it is vital that the mixture is mixed thoroughly with every use. Please keep cool and in a dark place, well sealed. This product is non toxic, non corrosive, all natural and organic.
We recommend that your sheep are drenched at least 3 to 4 times a year, if you are going to continue with your commercial drench this is ok, but please use our drench first, and then the commercial drench. Drench all sheep between 30 to 20 ml per head and half this dose for lambs these rates seem to be the most effective rate currently across Australia. Please note, drenching does not replace a good normal balanced diet.
We use a variety of oils etc to make our drenches, Rice bran oil is a naturally occurring source of antioxidants including tocopherols and gamma-oryzanol etc, a plant sterol that acts as a muscle builder and conditioner. It also contains good levels of squalene a contributor to good foot health.
Canola oil is high in omega 9 and contains a significant source of omega 3 essential fatty acids, and omega 6. Blended with these oils are Adams apple cider vinegar which aids digestion and absorption, promoting a healthy coat, it gives the drench its flavour and is also high in potassium. Seaweed the worlds most nutritious plant is then added, this adds trace elements to further promote health and well being. To this we add our fresh aloe Vera juice and natural sea mineral product which contains over 70 minerals. Our drench is used widely across the world by small hobby farmers with just a few sheep, to much larger concerns with a few thousand sheep.
