What is Kelzyme

Posted by Jim Bradshaw

 The fossilized kelp mineral product mined in northwestern Nevada, USA and trademarked under the name of (KELZYME), is a very diverse product. Kelzyme is useful as a soil amendment and is an essential nutrient supplement in many agricultural and horticultural applications. Its' value as a supplement in livestock feed and as a calcium and mineral supplement for human consumption also has great potential. Kelzyme appears in its' raw state as a metamorphic stone that grinds easily into several sieves and can be ground as fine powder that would be useful in foliar applications where feasible.

Kelzyme is used in a variety of applications. It has proven a valuable soil conditioner in intensive cropping systems to maintain mineral content in soils with yearly application. It has been combined with commercial nitrogen sources to extend their life. And it has been used to increase the vigor of a number of agricultural crops under a wide variety of climatic and soil conditions.

The diverse mineral content of Kelzyme has proven effective at eliminating cultural problems in crops associated with mineral deficiencies. In avocado and citrus applications, Kelzyme has been applied to orchards exhibiting a number of mineral deficiencies as well as otherwise productive acreage. In all applications, Kelzyme increased plant vigor, reduced fertilizer inputs, and plants had fewer problems with insect pests and disease. It was discovered through control experiments that Kelzyme effected changes in plant metabolism and uptake of nutrients was increased through enhancement of the biology in the soil environment. It was apparent that the treated orchards were able to resist disease via the competitive exclusion of pathogenic organisms from the increase in the vigor of beneficial species of soil micro flora. This phenomenon has been demonstrated in vineyard crops and deciduous fruit.

 The fossilized marine macro-algae mineral, Kelzyme, is mined from a deposit in the northwestern portion of the state of Nevada, USA by Environmental Health Sciences. This material has demonstrated properties that make it anideal agricultural soil conditioner and plant stimulator for increasing mineral availability and diversity to crops. Kelzyme, .fossilized marine macro algae, has also demonstrated an ability to impart its' abundant mineral diversity to depleted soils, thereby rehabilitating the soil’s ecosystem and returning depleted soils to productivity. Kelzyme's capabilities for soil rehabilitation makes it uniquely appropriate for re-establishing soil fertility and productivity after cataclysmic stripping of the soil from floodwaters. Kelzyme has also shown the capacity to promote the growth of beneficial soil micro flora and to inhibit the spread of pathogenic organisms in the soil environment.

The origin of Kelzyme is a combination of marine and geothermal dynamics. The Paleozoic alga mounds that formed Kelzyme deposits are similar to many other formations within what was once a vast, inland sea that covered the Great Basin of North America. These algae mounds were often places of rich marine life including calcareous algae, marine microalgae, coralline animals, mollusks, sessile invertebrates, and a wide variety of pelagic species of plants and animals.
