Keshavite in Agriculture  

• Keshavite has the potential of reducing the loss of nitrogen from ammonium fertilizes which tend to improve the nitrogen-holding power of soil by increasing the bulk ion-exchange capacity
• Keshavite in turn promotes a slower release of ammonium ions from the Zeolite and restricts NH4, NO3  leaching loss.
• In some instances Keshavite may also provide plant nutrients such as potassium from the soil or from fertilizer.
• Based upon its high ion-exchange capacity and water retentivity, Keshavite  has been used extensively for soil amendments.
• Keshavite is also an effective carrier of herbicides, fungicides and pesticides.

• Not only is Keshavite used to carry nutrient ions into the soil, it can also be exploited to trap undesirable cations and lessen their introduction  into the food chain.
• Keshavite mixed with manure is applied to soils degraded by hydric erosion.
• Keshavite diminishes the period of fermentation of manure and is widely used in Zeoponics system of Agronomy & Horticulture.
• Keshvite is generously used for golf course greens and tees, greenhouse and field crop production, potting soil biomass production and turf management
• Keshavite reduces the amount of water needed for irrigation and holds the moisture and nitrogen in the growth zone. The held nitrogen is plant accessible but not water-soluble, reducing the nitrogen fertilizer requirement. This not only improves plant nutrition, but protects the quality of ground water
• Keshavite can be ammoniated naturally with manure for the qualification of "organic growth" or artificially with ammonium nitrate, ammonium sulfate, urea, or other nitrogen sources
• Keshavite in finer forms is used as a carrier for pesticides and herbicides due to its porosity
• It has a high capacity for water retention inside the granules, and also provides space for soil aeration.
• Keshavite mixed with animal or poultry manure provides a temporary storage for ammonium and will reduce the odor of the manures. It has been proven  to be advantageous for lawns, potting soils, flower and vegetable gardens. In addition to improved fertilizer utilization and water retention, it also creates a time-release mechanism to prevent pollution and the burning of the plant by nitrogen.
• Keshavite absorbs ammonium and ammonia gas to reduce the conversion of the nitrogen to nitrates and nitrites that cause water pollution
• The introduction of Keshavite to the manure, compost promotes benefit of increasing water retention, holds the nitrogen and other micro-nutrients in the growth zone, provids a medium for the future capture of nitrogen, increases the ion exchange capacity of the soil and enhances infiltration and aeration of the soil.

• The compost or dry stacked manure should be top-dressed with a thin layer of Keshavite after it is turned or after the addition of a new layer of manure. Alternatively, a layer of Keshavite should be placed in the area of the barn receiving the fresh manure.
• Using Keshavite will cut fertilizer and water costs by holding the nutrients and water in the root zone until the plant is ready to utilize them, thereby requiring less fertilizer and water to be applied. This promotes good stewardship of the land by reducing pollution brought on by fertilizers leaching to the groundwater or running off into surface water sources. Zeolites, when used properly, can yield some impressive results with regards to faster germination times, faster growth rates, larger plants, crop yields and reduced fertilizer and water applications.

Since the product has a high capacity of absorption, please do not place it by the pesticides and radioactive emitting materials in order to prevent the product from absorbing chemical products imperceptibly.
