Soil Application

Long ago an ancient sea covered what is now Utah. When the water receded there was left behind a deposit of rich, natural minerals in nature’s perfect balance and proportion. These minerals have been preserved from modern pollutants for centuries. Now they are available in their natural form to restore health to plants, animals, and man. Using chemical processes, the other salts have been stripped of their trace minerals, bleached, kiln-dried and combined with anti-caking agents. Alone, sodium chloride is a toxic substance but when combined with valuable trace minerals it is life sustaining.

Redmond Sea Minerals has over 60 naturally occurring trace minerals. All we do is crush and package it so it is ready for use.

Over the centuries many of Earth’s minerals have been worn down by nature and washed out to sea, giving it the richness that was once on land. The liquid crystalloid of the sea contains a consistent balance and proportion of minerals to support life. In fact, it is very similar to that of blood. Interestingly, sea life is void of many of the degenerative diseases that affect life on land.

“The discovery of these facts led to researching the effects of sea minerals applied to soils and plants for healthier Real Results. Naturally.™ The Redmond Salt Difference food. The results were astounding — plants grew faster and healthier, were more disease resistant and maintained higher nutritive value. Animals also preferred to graze on the treated pasture land. Thus, it was learned that the natural blend and proportion of these minerals (the sea salts and associated trace minerals) have a more positive effect than fertilizing heavily with just one or two elements (i.e., Nitrogen, Phosphorous, and Potassium). The proper ratio of minerals is more important than the total amount of minerals.” 1

“Fertilizing pasture with salt found to lift milk yield by 10%, milk fat by 5%, and lactose by 3%.” 2

“Salting pastures increased grazing time, and biting rates, and cows would preferentially graze salt fertilized pastures over non-salted pastures.” 2

“Fertilizing with salt appears to lower pasture bloat by increasing the digestibility of grasses and decreasing the effects of clover bloat.” 3

“Excessive potassium in plants causes an antagonistic effect on magnesium, calcium and sodium and induces grass tetany, milk fever, downer cow syndrome and reproductive losses. Fertilizing pastures with salt reduced the excessive potassium levels.” 4
