The Key Benefits of Chitin from Insect Frass

  • Immunity Improvement: Chitin stimulates a plant's natural defenses against pests and disease, making it an effective and natural way to boost immunity and protect your plants.
  • Root Promotion: With chitin, your plants will experience a boost in root growth and development, leading to stronger, healthier plants with more extensive root systems.
  • Nutrient Uptake Enhancement: By adding chitin from insect frass to soil, nutrient uptake is improved, leading to better growth, yields, and overall plant health.
  • Soil Structure Enhancement: Chitin helps to improve soil structure by promoting the growth of beneficial microorganisms that break down organic matter, leading to better aeration and water retention.
  • Eco-Friendly and Sustainable: Insect frass is a sustainable and eco-friendly source of chitin, making it an excellent choice for growers who care about natural and environmentally conscious ways to improve plant growth.

Works a treat

Put some of this as a top dress on my chilli plants with some sticky traps and have noticed a massive decrease in gnat numbers! Happy days!
