WHEN TO USE EPSOM SALT -EpsoMicrotop ON PLANTS? (why it is important in garden)

EpsoMicrotop (Epsom salt) is a companion organic input most cherished by many farmers who wish to grow their food in the most organic way because of it being traced right from nature. It is named after its bitter saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England. It is among the naturally occurring mineral salts with a  compound of magnesium and sulfate. Epsom salt is good for the for growing organic food with full nourishment. 

This wonderful product when diluted in water, is easily taken up by plants, especially when applied as a foliage spray. Most plants can be misted with a solution of 2 tablespoons (30 mls) of Epsom salt per gallon of water once a month. For more frequent watering, every other week, cut this back to 1 tablespoon (15 mls).


Signs a farmer can look at to know the plants need Epsom salt (lack Magnesium and sulfur)

Plants need Magnesium and sulfur because these two are considered as building blocks in a plant's lifetime.

If a plant’s leaves turn yellow all over the plant, it can be a sign they need more sulfate. If lower leaves turn yellow between the veins (that is the veins stay green), they may need more magnesium. 

why is it good for plants?

Although magnesium and sulfur occur naturally in soil, they can be depleted by various conditions, including heavy agricultural use. But unlike most conventional commercial fertilizers, which build up in the soil over time, Epsom Salt is not persistent so you can’t overuse it. Organic farmers or gardeners  can proactively mix Epsom salt with other organic fertilizers such as organic plant food and add it to their soil monthly, or they can mix one tablespoon with a gallon of water and spray leaves directly every two weeks. This natural product is a great recommendation for any organic farmer who loves to produce clean food. A difference can be told of food produced using this product in comparison to conventional fertilizers sold on markets.
