Crustacean Meal is a unique, natural fertilizer that is made from the shells of crabs, prawns, and lobsters. It is a slow-release source of nutrients, including nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and chitin.

Chitin is a natural compound that is found in the exoskeletons of crustaceans. It has been shown to elicit an immune response in plants, which can help to protect them from pests, diseases, and environmental stresses.

Crustacean Meal is also a good source of calcium, which is essential for plant growth and development. Calcium helps to strengthen cell walls and improve plant structure.
