Plant needs Fish ’N’ Bone is processed from marine fish, so it is a good source of organic phosphorus and calcium along with nitrogen and other micronutrients.
(N:8%, P:8%, K:1%, S:0.8%, Ca:13% plus Amino Acids and Vitamins)
Fish ’N’ Bone is well suited for your lawn and garden, fruit trees and broad acres. Fish ’N’ Bone contains approximately 45% protein and rest all marine bone with high calcium which can be naturally broken down into plant available nitrogen, phosphorus and calcium. The protein content equates to about 8% nitrogen, bone values upto 8% and 12% phosphorus and calcium respectively.
Fish ’N’ Bone is high in both macro and micronutrients as well as contains many essential amino acids and vitamins, which is a good source of food for soil bacteria and fungi.
For an effective results, it is better if you can apply in Autumn, Winter and Mid Spring as Fish ’N’ Bone will release the Nutrients very slowly with out allowing them to leach or waste. There fore Fish ’N’ Bone applied plants looks always healthy.
The product can be safely used while planting/transplanting or repotting as the product will not burn the roots.
Apply handful (around 100 Grams) to 1m2 of planting area and then incorporate into the soil. Keep the the moisture level constant to break down and to release the nutrients to root zones.
Bulbs: Apply one table spoon per hole for average size bulbs, more for larger varieties. Mix thoroughly into soil and water in well.
Vegetable Gardens: To prepare new gardens, apply 1.5 Kg/10 Sq. Meter area by mixing properly in to the top soil. For new planting/repotting or transplants, add only 2 spoons of Fish ’N’ Bone and then mix into the soil and water in well. For established plants, top dress them with 50 Grams/Plant, once each month during the growing season. (The rate may slightly vary depending on the plant type, size and growth stage)
Container/Big Pots: For new plantings, add 2 table spoon of Fish ’N’ Bone per 3 litres or 2.5 Kg/Cubic Meter of soil or growing media, mix them thoroughly. Repeat the same method for established plants.

Row Crops/Acreage: Apply 400-700 Kg/Ha depending on specific crop needs or depending on the required nutrients needs.
When you apply Fish ’N’ Bone to the soil, it is processed differently by direct digestion by microbes such as bacteria, earthworms and fungi. This makes the nutrient available for plant roots to use. Fish ’N’ Bone will helps in recharging the good microbes in the soil which in turn enhances the strength and vigour of plants by increasing the amount of organic matter in the soil. Fungi and bacteria will break down nutrients to make them available to plant roots, and then loosen the dirt as they travel, reproduce, process nutrients and decay, leaving soil aerated with improved levels of organic matter. Plant roots grow faster and stronger in this light, airy Fish ’N’ Bone applied soil that is teeming with life.
As Fish ’N’ Bone improves the soil health, it also increases soil fertility by providing the primary nutrients necessary for plants to thrive, by offering a source of burn-free nitrogen Phosphorus and Calcium, along with the other primary nutrients.
