Has anyone used this? What kind of results did you get?
I was also thinking of buying Humic acid. How well did that work?

Not sure if you're referring to a specific product, but I use crab/crustacean meal in my soils as a way to get slow release N, Ca, and Chitin, which promotes chitinase, an enzyme created by specific that breaks down chitin and has been shown to help with SAR (systemic acquired resistance).

I was wondering if there is a specific product that is better than the others. I've seen a couple of different brands.

I use an Anderson dg product for my humic.... it’s a gradual that really flows well threw my spreader... I think Rutgers university had a study on kelp to humic ratio good read I’m sure google can find it ...
