How does Wheat Bran release phosphorus and other nutrients?

A:Wheat Bran is high in phytic acid, which is a saturated cyclic phosphate-based acid. Soil microbes can break down phytic acid, making it available for plants to use. This process releases phosphorus, a whopping 15% amino acids (by weight), and plenty of carbohydrates (50% by weight), making it a highly effective soil amendment.

Can I use Wheat Bran along with other soil amendments?

A:Yes, you can combined Wheat Bran with P-solubilizing microbes in a tea to create a quick, organic and effective source of phosphorus. Additionally, you can mix Wheat Bran with other organic matter for a richer and more balanced soil amendment.

A:You can add 1/2 cup of Wheat Bran into your top dressing mixture or directly underneath your mulch layer each cycle. This will ensure that the nutrients are evenly distributed in the soil, promoting healthier plant growth and development.

What is the NPK ratio of Wheat Bran?

A:The overall NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium) ratio of Wheat Bran is 2.4 : 2.9 : 1.6, making it a balanced source of essential nutrients for plants.

Is Wheat Bran suitable for all types of plants?

A:Wheat Bran can be used for various types of plants, including vegetables, flowers, and trees. However, it is essential to consider the specific nutrient requirements of your plants and adjust the application rate accordingly.
