Crab Meal

Organic Start crab product is available in both Crab Powder (37 micron, 0.037mm) and Crab Meal (250 micron, 0.25mm) form.

 

Crab Meal is refined through a 60-mesh screen for guaranteed consistency, and is intended for amending soil and top dressing. It contains extraordinary amounts of calcium, as well as moderate nitrogen and phosphate values; along with a wide spectrum of trace minerals, as you would expect from a creature that lives in the ocean.

 

Crab Meal is exceptional nutrition for the ‘soil food web’. It is known to eliminate various soil issues, along with ‘root-knot’ and nematodes. It’s the perfect broad spectrum, single source organic fertiliser – improving the quality of crop yields in an all-natural way. The secret to Crab Meal is its Chitin content, which sits at an average of 25-30%. Chitin provides an abundance of nitrogen to the soil medium; offering significant benefits to living organisms. Chitin strengthens the microbiome, and allows plant life to produce chlorophyll!

 

Additionally, Crab Meal can improve water holding capacity, soil texture and soil aeration for better root development.

 

All Organic Start products are run through phytosanitary checks and an organic vector elimination process prior to export, which guarantees their safety and efficacy. Our crab shell is rescued from from by-product of the seafood industry. The shells are superheated and refined to eliminate vectors and impurities – ensuring a consistent, clean and safe end product.

 

Like all Organic Start products, Crab Meal is highly suitable and applicable to a range of organic growing programs. Crab Meal is a NOP Certified Organic product in the United States which can be used in gardens, landscaping, containers, and raised beds… for vegetables, fruits, herbs, flowers, vines, trees and shrubs.
