The secret to maintaining safe, healthy soil that consistently yields hearty root and plant growth is the addition of beneficial microorganisms and vital organic matter – without the use of chemicals. As compost rebuilds and revitalizes soil, plants will benefit from:
- High organic content
- Available nutrients
- Increased disease suppression
- Superior water handling capacity
- Stronger root development
Proper soil and subsoil drainage should be assured prior to determining compost, fertilizer and lime application rates. Compost application rates and soil amendment requirements are influenced by plant selection, soil/media quality, site characteristics, compost attributes and other factors. Have your soil and soil/compost blend tested by a reputable laboratory and review your test results with a trained agricultural/soil professional.
