HOW MUCH DE DO I NEED TO USE?

Our Diatomaceous Earth supplier is pleased to offer the services of a qualified agronomist who specialises in the use and application of natural silica. If you would like to discuss your particular needs, specific application and usage rates, or general agricultural or horticultural requirements, please contact Diatomaceous Earth Online™

Agriculture

As anti-caking agent in grain – 2% per volume

Agricultural farming – approximately 1000kgs per hectare per year*

* High quality silica has a residual effect when used in soil and depending on the soil conditions prior to first application its subsequent application rate will most likely be reduced and may even be unnecessary for a period of 1 to 3 years.

Horticulture

Sprinkle liberally on the ground around trees or mix 500g to 8 litres water to spray

Before planting – use 2-5 kgs per 15 metre row

Mixing with soil – 250g to a hole 300mm wide by 300mm deep

500g to 8 litres water to spray top and underside of leaves

Approximate coverage for gardens:

250g will treat 25 square metres

500g will treat 50 square metres
