Bentonite for Agriculture & Horticulture

Many of Australias soils are difficult to manage and have problems with the soil structure, resulting in restricted pasture and crop yields.

The role of bentonite in the agricultural and horticultural industries is not as a fertiliser, but to improve water retention and to act as a catalyst for trapping nutrients that pass through the soil. The use of bentonite in conjunction with a fertiliser program makes the use of fertiliser more efficient and cost effective.

Bentonite is also ideal in potting mixtures and compost by retaining moisture, thus helping bacterial growth and the breakdown of compost components.

The fine powder grade is recommended for these applications and the product is available in bags (40 kg or 1200 kg) or as bulk product.
