New Product – Active carbon made in Australia from local peat

Outstanding results across Australia reinforcing decades of literature showing active carbon works.

Use as a pre-plant, planting or side-dress.


Active Carbon – 40% humic and fulvic acids (with potassium)
37.9% silicates

International research over decades stresses importance of active carbon
  • Active carbon is essential for biological life.
  • Active carbon is the fraction of soil organic matter that provides microbes with energy and a food source for nutrient cycling (labile carbon).
  • Active carbon improves nutrient and water retention, nutrient availability and microbial activity.
  • Active carbon is a cost-effective way to get organic effective way to gain the benefits of soil carbon

Vital Earth pellets adds an active carbon source

  • Nutrient availability –HFA pushes Al off phosphate, releasing to plant
  • Improves soil structure
  • Retains moisture
  • Helps with drought stress –Stimulates anti-oxidant compounds
  • Improves nutrient uptake (+20%) –Permeability of cell walls, root growth
  • Stimulates root growth
  • Buffers salinity
Research - why active carbon works

We recommend adding active carbon every time you fertilise
