Our Sassafrass naturally contains the nutrition plants require, beneficial micro-organisms, and the only immediately plant-available source of chitin . Chitin fortifies a plant from the inside out, causing an increased immune response in plants, protecting against various pathogens by increasing the plants own immune system. The EPA says that chitin and chitosan defends against botrytis (grey mold), powdery mildew, early and late blight, fungal pathogens in the root zone (root rot) and root-feeding nematodes.
- What worm castings are to worms, frass is to meal worms.
- Contains meal worm shells which are made of chitin.
- Use in compost teas, in soil amending, or as a top dress
