Ground rock dust blends as a soil amendment may provide a more complete source of many plant-available elements and minerals, allowing for more wholesome plant growth and the production of higher quality, more nutrient-dense foods. The mechanism by which the rock dust is broken down also provides long-term improvements to soil fertility, reducing the resources needed to apply the amendment, thereby improving the overall sustainability of the growing operation.
