Crab Shell (2-3-0)

Crab Shell (2-3-0)

A 100% natural soil additive, crab meal is a by-product of the crab meat industry, crab meal is made from shells and offal of coastal water blue crabs. These crabs are harvested from Maine to Mexico. The shells are kiln dried then pulverized into a beige-colored meal.

How it works
Adds life to soil by providing food for microorganisms, especially a protein called chitin. Chitin provides not only slow-release nitrogen but also suppresses pest nematode activity.
