What is Diatomaceous Earth?

Amorphous Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is a soft, siliceous rock that forms naturally in freshwater rivers and lakes and is easy to break up into a fine, white off-white powder. Its composition mainly includes silica (SiO2) along with small amounts of other minerals. The “amorphous” label refers to the fact that DE is not crystalline in structure, which contributes to its beneficial properties, especially in agricultural, horticultural, and floricultural applications.

Uses of Diatomaceous Earth in Agriculture, Horticulture, and Floriculture

DE is utilized across various sectors for its unique properties. In agriculture, horticulture, and floriculture, it serves several key functions:

1. Soil Amendment and Conditioner: DE improves soil structure and drainage, aiding in the retention of water and nutrients. This makes it an excellent soil conditioner, enhancing root growth and plant health.
2. Natural Pesticide: When applied as dust, DE can control pests by absorbing the lipids from the exoskeletons of insects, leading to dehydration and death. It’s effective against a range of pests without the use of chemical insecticides.
3. Fertilizer Supplement: DE’s mineral content can supplement fertilizers, providing trace elements beneficial for plant growth.

    Effectiveness as a Pesticide and Soil Conditioner

    DE’s effectiveness as a pesticide is well-documented, with studies showing it can significantly reduce pest populations in agricultural settings. As a soil conditioner, DE helps improve soil structure, promoting better root growth and plant development. However, the effectiveness can vary based on application rates, soil types, and specific crop needs.

    Replacing or Supplementing Traditional Fertilizers

    While DE does not replace traditional fertilizers entirely due to their limited nutrient content, it complements them by improving soil structure and health, which can enhance nutrient uptake by plants. Its use can reduce the need for chemical fertilizers, aligning with sustainable agriculture practices.

    Success Stories and Trials

    To your right, we present to you the results of several field trials we have conducted. We hope you find these enlightening.

    Supporting UN Sustainability Goals and Climate Change Mitigation

    The use of DE in agriculture contributes to several United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including responsible consumption and production (SDG 12), climate action (SDG 13), and life on land (SDG 15). By providing an alternative to chemical pesticides and fertilizers, DE supports sustainable farming practices, which can help mitigate climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions associated with synthetic fertilizer production and use.
