depends on how many micro nutrients the fertilizer has
azomite has a lot of trace elements http://www.azomite.com/resources/coa.pdf

Very little! It really depends on what you soil already contains which you can find via a soil test. I would highly doubt you need more the fertilizer contains.

I would say Yes. I apply to the top of my soil 2 - 3 times a year.
If I dont hae any more azomite I will just use Humic, or Liquid Sea weed.

Azomite has heavy metals/fluoride in it, which I don't want building up in my soil/plants, I will pass.

How about obtaining micro nutrients the natural way? What happened to raking dead leaves from large old growth trees, loaded with micro nutrients pulled from deep beneath the ground and macro nutrients just begging to be composted.

Also wood chips inoculated with vigorous fungi ill turn to nutrients for plants rather quickly.
