    Has anyone ever used Azomite to replenish mineral deficiencies in soils/turf?

    I have never used it, but the principle is sound. Azomite is supposed to contain just about all the nutrients from a to z, hence the name azomite. The whole principle is that the material contains the nutrients in a balanced amount as they would be found in a analysis of a healthy plant or animal. I have never seen a chemical analysis of the material. A Dr. Maynard did a lot of reseach on materials from desalted sea water. Which is supposely where the Azomite comes from. In his studies, the nutrients are in a crystalode state, which is smaller than a collodial size nutrient, and more readly availabe to plant uptake. Azomite is petrifide (for lack of a better word) settlements from salt water mined from the ground and has to be groundup into a miconized size, usually 10 micron or smaller to provide similar effects as the saltwater materials. How well the material actually works, I havent a clue.
