How does the cost and nutrient value of KELP FIBER and traditional soil amendment regimes compare?
If the cost and nutrient value of KELP FIBER, used at the rate of 4 cu. yds. / 1,000 sq. ft. is compared with the cost and nutrient value of 4 cu. yds. / 1,000 sq. ft. nitrolyzed redwood compost, supplemented with 200 lbs. / 1,000 sq. ft. commercial fertilizers (used as a preplant fertilizer to supply macro and micro nutrients), the cost of the traditional soil amendment regime is 24% more than the cost of a comparable application rate of KELP FIBER. However, the KELP FIBER provides more of the macro nutrients, Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P), and Potassium (K). It also provides the micronutrients, Iron, Zinc, and Manganese, that are present in the redwood compost, and most commercial fertilizers. Plus, it provides large amounts of the nutrients calcium, magnesium, and trace amounts of the micronutrients copper and boron that are not present in the traditional amendments or fertilizers. Thus, the KELP FIBER regime costs less and provides more nutrient value than the traditional amendment
