Chilean Nitrate 16-0-0

Also known as Natural Nitrate of Soda (NNS), Chilean nitrate is mined from a desert in Northern Chile, which is the only known deposit of this mineral salt. Contains 26% sodium (Na), which does not damage ecosystem in small quantities.

How it works
Commonly used in New England and elsewhere on organic farms as a source of nitrogen that is available to plants in cold soils. The microbial activity needed to mineralize natural organic nitrogen is suppressed during periods when the soil is cold.

General usage
In fields and gardens. Not compatible in arid or semiarid regions.

Directions for use
Apply with an organic amendment such as cocoa meal, peanut meal, or compost. Do not rely on NNS as sole source of nitrogen.
