By providing existing soil microbes with food and energy, CrabLife® naturally and safely improves soil health by enhancing the beneficial microbial community in the soil so plants can thrive. The key ingredient is naturally derived crustacean meal. Scientifically proven to stimulate the soil microbiome, particularly microbes associated with the biological control of plant pathogens and parasitic nematodes, crustacean meal improves soil health for greater root and plant vitality. Adding CrabLife to an existing production program increases nutrient uptake and root development, for increased resistance to stress and maximum crop yield across various growing locations and soil types.
CrabLife application rates begin at 300 lbs. per acre for CrabLife Flake and CrabLife Plus, which are applied directly to the soil and incorporated to a depth of 6 inches as a food source for beneficial microbes and crop plants. CrabLife Powder is applied at 40 to 80 lbs. per acre as a soil drench or side dress to help optimize root growth and marketable yields. Proper tank agitation is required for CrabLife Powder applications to keep the product in suspension.
