All over the world volcanic soils are recognised as being exceptionally fertile and productive. This is due to their richness of minerals and trace elements. It’s been 10,000 years since the last ice age when glaciers crushed and spread mineral rich volcanic rocks to create deep fertile soils.

A tiny, but critical percentage of the dry weight of all plant material that we take as crops is made up of minerals.  Most modern fertilisers however replace only the basic NPK ie Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium and very little more.

This, and the leaching of minerals caused by precipitation over time, explains why most of our soils are now mineral-deficient.
