Dust obtained from a mixture of rock types would have even more dramatic results, according to Weaver and Hamaker. These results were typical for all crops receiving rock dust in our 1985 garden. --Dan Hemenway Benefits of Remineralization Provides slow, natural release of elements and trace minerals. Increases the ...
