Hi Rocky,

I'm sorry, I can't really give you good information about cat litter or even bentonite. We recommend utilizing hard-silicon rock dust. Please download the RTE primer. 

Best,

Most of the gardeners I know are partial towards the microfine grit, it is just more readily available to your plants.  The brix blend that you described will just take a little longer to become available to the plant.   It might be a great amendment for a clay soil since it is more sandy consistency.

Hello all,

I am working on setting up a buying cooperative in the Charlottesville, Virginia area to purchase and distribute a whole truckload of Tom Vanacore's "Luckyrock". I would like some help however, determining ideal application rates, even approximately. I have been using Logan Labs for my soil analyses ( Soil Test) and Vanacore has his minerals analyzed with Actlabs. (LuckyRockDust).

Can anyone advise me on the mathematics here to help approximate application levels in lbs/sq-ft? What should I be looking to match?

Thank you,

Hi Connor,

I'm not familiar with this particular product from Tom Vanacore,  but he is very accessible so I would suggest contacting him for your specific situation and asking him. He has Has a background as a farmer, and I'm sure that he'll be of help to you. 

As far as the YouTube goes that was suggested by Rocky, I have spent decades collecting research and following what's going on in the world as far as the movement of remineralization,  so his point of view is not very persuasive.

Please feel welcome to email me if you need an introduction if you need an introduction to Tom.
