Down To Earth™ Oyster Shell is an all-natural and high-quality source of the essential plant nutrient calcium. Ancient oyster shells are carefully harvested and then ground into small, medium and coarse particles. These irregular shapes provide a sustained release of this valuable nutrient. DTE™ Oyster Shell also aids in improving structure of soils and building optimum tilth.
