Our Frass blend is rich in macronutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, as well as micronutrients like calcium, magnesium, sulfur, and iron. These nutrients are essential for healthy plant growth and development, and they can help to increase yields, improve fruit and flower quality, and enhance plant resilience to environmental stresses like drought, heat, and disease.
In addition to nutrients, this blend contains beneficial microorganisms like bacteria, fungi, and protozoa that help to break down organic matter in the soil and release nutrients that are otherwise unavailable to plants. These microorganisms also help to suppress soil-borne diseases, improve soil structure and water-holding capacity, and enhance nutrient cycling and soil fertility over time.
Furthermore, the chitin in the blend helps to stimulate the growth of beneficial soil microorganisms like chitinolytic bacteria and fungi that can break down chitin into plant-available forms of nitrogen and carbon. Chitin also acts as a natural biopesticide, helping to control soil pests and diseases like nematodes, root rot, and fungal pathogens.
Overall, this 3-part blend of cricket, black soldier fly, and mealworm frass can provide a comprehensive suite of benefits for both plants and soil, including improved nutrient availability, enhanced soil structure and fertility, increased plant growth and yield, and natural pest and disease control.
Insects are fed traceable recycled food waste such as vegetables, fruit + grains that would otherwise go to the landfill.
