Plants need adequate nutrients to thrive. Providing these nutrients from organic sources helps maintain the health of the soil ecosystem. The best way to identify exactly what your soil needs is by soil testing.
Soil should be tested when new soil is brought into the garden, when poor plant growth indicates something is wrong, and also routinely every few years. Forms and instructions for soil testing are available at extension.unh.edu.
These are some common organic nutrient sources, and tips on their use:
Composted Manure, Fish Emulsion, Blood Meal, and Soybean Meal
Composted Manure and Fish Emulsion are slow-release forms of Nitrogen. Add to garden in late autumn to be ready for spring. Blood meal and Soybean meal are relatively fast-acting.
Phosphorous: Composted Manure, Worm Castings, and Rock Phosphate
Rock Phosphate requires acid soil for release. Do not use in soil with a PH above 7.
Potassium: Hardwood ashes and Greensand
Wood ash also raises soil PH rapidly. Do not exceed 20 lbs. /1000 ft. Do not use on acid loving plants (Blueberries, Rhododendrons, Azaleas, etc.). You can use wood ash to correct immediate deficiencies.
Greensand releases potassium slowly. Apply 10 lbs. /100 ft. of Greensand to a first year garden, and following years add 1 lb. /100 ft.
*Dolomitic Lime-raises PH and supplies Magnesium
*Calcite Lime (Calcium Sulfate) – does not supply Magnesium, but does raise PH.
*Gypsum (Calcium Sulfate)-supplies Calcium, but does not change PH. Gypsum will improve structure of clay soil.
*Sul-Po-Mag-use if Potassium is needed
*Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulfate)-use if only Magnesium is needed
*Sul-Po-Mag-use if Potassium and Magnesium are needed
Minor elements are essential for plant growth, but are usually present in adequate amounts in soil rich in organic matter. They are often present in other nutrient sources, and are not tested in soil testing. Testing for minor elements requires tissue testing to identify a specific deficiency. Boron deficiency sometimes occurs in Broccoli and Cauliflower. Use Twenty mule Team Borax, 1/2 lb. Borax per 1000 sq. ft.
Examples of Minor Elements are:
*Boron *Zinc *Molybdenum *Copper *Chlorine *Iron *Manganese
